I got to know Tracey a little bit when her son Connor started dating my daughter Liza! The one thing I know she loved her kids her husband ,sports! And I can see through the video, and her children ,that her smile is so infectious! And that will live on in her children , and especially seeing Bailey who looks just like her! But all the kids have that beautiful bright smile. May God smile down upon you all and give you strength amen! Love the donaldsons

I was so saddened to hear this news. Tracy was one of the sweetest, most kind, and positive people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I worked with her years ago at Robinson and since then was always happy when our paths crossed. I know her family meant everything to her. Prayers for the family to find comfort during this time. The heavens most definitely gained an angel!

I knew Tracy briefly through book club at CCPL. She held a special place in my heart as we shared mom tips on making housework easier. Every time I did laundry, which I know was her least favorite thing to do, I would pray for her and smile. Although I dont know her husband or children well, I know she loved them well! Sharon and family, you are in my prayers. I cant wait to see Tracy again in heaven when Jesus reunites us all! Until then, she will never be forgotten!

Dear Martin family I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Tracy and loved her. My heart is broken for all of you. She was such a kind, caring soul and the world was so much better because of her. I am holding your family close to my heart and will keep all of you in my prayers. I will miss her so much.
