    Tracey was one of my best friends. We met at one of the Pensacola Beach Optimist Club meetings 21 years ago and remained great friends. She touched my life in a hundred wonderful ways and was an amazing friend who told me so many great stories, made me laugh out loud, and confided in each others life situations that we swore to secrecy. It was a sad day when Tracey left us but she will always be in my thoughts, my heart and my prayers, and I will smile again just for having the privileges’ of knowing her.
