I knew Tracy for a short while when she worked on an aviation education project for me. During that time, she was always cheerful, smart, efficient, modest and extremely capable. Nothing was left undone. She was truly remarkable, kind and such a good person to know. Hers is a great loss to us all. My sincerest sympathies to her friends and family. Dr. Maxine Lubner, February 5, 2010 Vickie, I'm thinking of you, your husband, and family. Your precious daughter's photo shows a lovely girl. Last July we talked about loving Jesus, so I know who you belong to. May you feel His presence everytime you need Him. Shari Autio Hogan, January 9, 2010 I think of you often since I received the call from Pam Ray - her cracking voice preparing me for bad news. I send you my heartfelt sympathy and prayers. May all your wonderful memories of your lovely daughter help you to heal and move forward in your lives. May God bless you with comfort and love. Pam Pamela Leighton Volker, October 29, 2009 My heart and prayers go out to the Bray family. Tracie was a dear friend of mine in college and I have many fun memories with her through Blades, OSU games, dorm life and sharing an apartment with her my Senior year. Kim Durall, September 27, 2009 Tom, Vickie and Jessica - We were so blessed to be at the memorial service for Tracie and to see all of you again. In the midst of a terribly unfortunate time in your lives, that service was very hopeful and encouraging for all who attended. We are hoping and praying that you are managing the follow-up details well in Ohio this week. Our prayers are with you and will be in the days to come. We will miss the vibrant life of Tracie, but will also cherish the fond memories we have of her active life. May the love of Jesus surround you and wipe away all your tears - Vince and Ellen Ellwood Vince Ellwood, September 22, 2009 Mr. and Mrs. Bray - Please accept my deepest, most heartfelt condolences for your loss. My thoughts are with you during this most difficult time. Tracie only worked in Toledo for a short time, but what an impression she made! She was anxious to get started here and she hit the ground running. We all could not get over how she immediately started to bring in business. She was a hard-working, energetic professional – way beyond her years! Most importantly, however, she showed a kindness that emanated from within. There is no doubt that she was one of the good ones. Tracie will be truly missed here. Lori Telb, September 18, 2009 Tom, Vickie, and Jessica, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We will be praying for you.
