Human words, anticipations or human emotions can't even approach description of her present joy, and for all eternity, at her present state - alive with the Jesus she really lived for here. Truly a soldier through her struggles here and in her commitment to the Lord who gave her that strength. Well done, Tracey!

1 Peter 1:7 "... the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ".

It was a privilege to know tracey and to receive her prayer requests. Most of these requests for others more so than herself but that was the way she was. Yes we will miss her but. Also we have great joy to know she is joyous in the presence of our Lord and Saviour.

I have known Tracey for many years when we met in a Christian chatroom. She was a dear friend who I had the great opportunity to meet in person several times. She will be missed but I know that she is with her loving Lord!

Phil. 1:3 "I thank my God every time I remember you". Just thinking about Tracey warms your heart, and I am better for having known her through the years. She is a lesson of persistance, faith and a reminder that even if our body doesn't work right, our mind and heart still can! Today she is in Paradise!

Our thoughts, prayers and love are with each of you. We have loved Tracey for many decades and have observed her painful physical struggle through the years. She has been a blessing and had a strong spiritual ministry with many people. Now she is free of the suffering and able to enjoy her days with the LORD and her loved ones in Heaven.

I was honored to get to know Tracey in her last 10 years of life. She took me in when i needed a safe place to stay and a job. We had a strong mother daughter bond and I learned a lot from her. I will miss her so much. After struggling her whole life she is free of pain and up in heaven watching all of us. Words cant express how much I will miss having her in my life!
