    I remember Traci always with a big smile on her face. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

    I will always remember the smile first and then the laugh and when I do I know I’ll feel better about life than I did the moment before.

    Traci was a dear friend of my good friend, Susan Meek. Although I never met Traci, I felt I knew her through Susan and Susan painted a lively word portrait of Traci! Susan told me Traci left quite an imprint on this world and Traci would be missed forever. Blessings and peace to all those family and loved ones who held Traci dearly in their hearts.
