I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with you and Dave, but in the short amount of time we did spend together it was obvious you were extremely happy and in love. I did not have the privilege of knowing Dave as well as I had hoped too, but I know he was one lucky man to win the heart of such a beautiful person.
I still remember the first time I saw you with Dave. It was at your Uncle’s birthday party in Tipton. Of course, Dave stood out in the large crowd because he was so tall, but what stood out even more was the enormous smile on your face! With one look at you I could tell you were deeply in love.
My heart truly breaks for you and I wish I could take away your pain. I hope in the days ahead you will find strength in your memories of Dave. Remember, you need to be “seal team” and not just a baby seal, but now a mama seal! “Don’t give up, dig deeper, know your own abilities to achieve and carry through.”
I know when you look into the eyes of your child for the first time you will smile and love again.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Although I never had the opportunity to meet David, I was deeply saddened to hear of his fatal accident. He sounds like a wonderful man, nephew, husband and friend. You know what they say about the good…. Our thoughts and prayers are with Traci, your unborn baby and his aunt and uncle in this very difficult time. Though the scar will aways be there, I pray that with time your bleeding heart will mend and help you deal with your loss.

Thank you for sending your exquisite Christmas card. I knew that it was from you the moment I saw your return address, even though I did not recognize the name! I sensed that someone had won your heart (and last name!) Then when I looked at your beautiful wedding picture, I felt the warmth and love between you and Dave.
Your tribute to Dave is amazing. Thank you for sharing your heart.
I can only imagine what you must be going through. I am very, very sorry. Please know that I am praying for you and precious baby.

Our hearts our heavy because of the loss of David. But we celebrate his glorious life. David's spirit and legacy of being an overcomer lives on, inspiring to achieve and push ourselves a little bit more.
01-09-2007 8:36 PM -- By: Tim Dumore, From: Winnipeg
I believe this makes me visitor 2081, which certainly says alot about how respected Dave must have been.
Traci, I just read your memorial that you wrote for Dave and would like to thank you for introducing him to those who did not know him. When I learned that you had met a special guy and were getting married, I was very happy for you. My hope was that I would get to met Dave at some ortho meeting and have a chance to get to know him a little, but I suppose your words are all that I'll have now...sure sounds like you were lucky to have met such a man.
That said, you are a special person yourself and must know that there are many of us out there who love you very much, whose thoughts are with you all day long. My only wish is that there were something that I could do to help your pain. Tim

Your writing of your husband, love and friend was beautiful. It was from your heart and cannot help but touch all the hearts of those who read it.
We send our deepest sympathies to you at this time of great loss. You have been in our prayers since we learned of the accident and we will continue to pray for you and your child who God has already blessed with two such beautiful parents.
We wish you strenth and courage on your journey ahead - All our best, Sue & Rob

My deepest condolences I recently heard the sad news. Although many times in life we are forced to confront darkness, the love of family and friends is the light that heals us and helps us through. Words are just a pale reflections of what I’m trying to express. You are so well liked and loved by so many good people.
The web-based tribute is superb.

Dearest Traci, Mike & I are both shocked and saddened by your tragic loss.

You are now blessed with a child that you two share together...may you find comfort, love & peace through the difficult times. If you need anything at all...we are here for you. with love, Mike & Debi

Please know our hearts and thoughts are with you at this time. Good luck with your pregnancy, and remember the good times, as much as your heart is breaking now.

Please accept our heartfelt sympathy for you and your baby. We did not know Dave, but we would have loved him from your description!
Please let us know if you get down to LA (we do get up to the Central Coast wine country every now and then...) Doug Harrington has kept us apprised of your progress with your practice also.

I am speechless.... my deepest love and sympathy to you. You are one of the strongest women I have ever met and even though I never had the pleasure of meeting Dave I feel your sorrow. I love you!

Dear, dear Traci, I am so sorry about your husband’s death and wish there were words to convey what I wish for you: comfort in the midst of sorrow and warm memories to soothe you. But I also know that this is not an easy time, and it’s hard to get the tears to stop flowing. Please know that all your admiring friends encircle you with support and love. My prayers are with you for peace. I feel as though I know Dave through your beautiful tribute to him -- may your son or daughter feel the depth of that love. Karen Moawad

I am so sorry and very saddened to hear of your tragic loss--I wish that there was a quick answer to take away the grief that you must now feel. You are right though, Dave will always be with you and you will see him in the eyes of your child and I hope that brings you comfort. Your eulogy was quite touching and brought tears to my eyes...it also makes me believe that you have the strength to carry you through. You were both fortunate to have known each other in this life and knowing this, I hope that this helps you through during this difficult time. Please take care, Nancy

Traci, I am so sorry to hear this news. I hope, pray and KNOW that you have the strength to pull thru this ordeal, for you and your child. The wonderful memories will help. Hang in there Traci, I wish there is anything I can do to ease your pain. You are in my prayers.
01-03-2007 7:04 PM -- By: Howard Hunt, From: Eureka, California
How wonderful to read everyone's thoughts and see their feelings pour out. In reading Paul Kasrovi's comment about finding strength, I would guess that you will find that strength in the time you are spending with your wonderful memories. To lose a husband at such a special, critical time in your relationship is something unimaginable. Jan and I are praying for you.
