Hi there. I am currently reading your book and cannot put it down. Cannot even begin to imagine your grief. My heart and soul goes out to you. I could not sleep the first night after I started reading, because I was so disturbed.
I am so very sorry for your sad loss and the serious way in how you all have been betrayed by our justice system and police. Neither your family or Tracey deserve this. This is exceptionally sad and I am shocked by the incompetence of all the poor officers and officials that was involved.
Have their been any new developments since the book?
Much love, Sandra

Nine years since we received the phone call. Nine years of missing you. Nine years of rebuilding destroyed lives. Nine years of wandering how, who, when, where and why. Love and miss you - but alive in in my heart and soul for ever.

The table has two empty seats - the second Christmas without your dad and the ninth without you. Those two seats can never be filled - nor can your hearts ever be replaced. Not a year passes that you are fnot thought of and missed - in fact not a moment passes without your memory filling my heart and mind. Love you my angel.

Its been a while, just thought I would pop in and say that you are not forgotton, there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about you, there are so many things that I see and hear everyday that remind me of you, your beautiful heart, your soul and all of you. I love and miss you dearly. We will meet again and till that day I hold my breath. Love Always Tazz

Another birthday without our children, Carol......
I know that you are feeling like I have today. I have been crying most of the day. We had a balloon release again at Crawford's gravesite and so many of his friends surprised me by attending. I was so pleased. Some of them came from out of state. I hope you know that I was also thinking of Tracey today as I let off the extra balloons for all those that also lost a child. I stayed after everyone left and release almost 50 more balloons in memory of all the children that I have gotten to know that have also died so young.......In memory of Tracey on her 33rd birthday and of Crawford on his 25th birthday.......lighting a candle for both.

Tracey - Happy heavenly birthday. I never met you in life but I've heard so many wonderful stories about you and the antics you got up to as a youngster.
Carol, Glen, Gran - I know this is a hard day for you. Know that lots of people are thinking of & care about you. While there's nothing we can do to help you through these dark days just know we are surrounding you with thoughts and wishes of peace for you all.

9801 Another birthday without you - another day that the hours and minutes tick by but your heart no longer beats. 33 years ago today was a day of rejoycing for the family - today we can only rejoyce in the all too few years we spent with you. You will live in my heart forever and will never be forgotten by the ones you loved or loved you. We were blessed to have been given you even if it was only for so short a time.

Hello Tracy, I understand your little doggie is there with you and your dad now. My heart goes out to your mom, struggling so much without you and your dad. I pray that who ever took you away from your mom and family, will be revealed soon. So that she will find peace. Love and Prayers <(())><

Is it really eight years since you were taken from us..Time flies but passes so slowly.I hope you are not giving your Dad a hard time, he loved you so much.
03-10-2013 11:45 AM -- By: mom, From:
Eight years have passed in the blink of an eye. It is still difficult to accept that you are never coming home. This year has been a diifcult one - especially now. Perhaps it is so much more difficult as the first year is almost past without your dad by my side. I am doing my best to live and carry on as your dad and you would have wanted, but certainly not easy with such a small part of my heart left. Love you my little bean - perhaps one day the truth of your murder and when you died will be revealed. I understand it will not bring you back - but it would close one door on the speculation I live with daily.

I read the book - just finished it last night! I am the mother of a 21 year old daughter and reading this book made me realise just how short life is, and how things can change in a heart beat. Thank you for sharing your experiences. Tracey sounds like she was an amazing individual and it is sad that her life was cut short so early. Good luck to all of you :)

Trace - I am missing you and your dad so much today. I am sitting here wondering how different things could have been. I can only cling to the thought that you are happy and you and your dad have been re-united and are discussing music like you used to do in this universe. My heart yearns and cries for both of you, Each morning I apply my mask and hide my anguish from the the world. The seconds pass into minutes, then hours then days, then months then years - but no one knows the hurt and pain I feel as each month passes and I can not hug you and your dad. I love you both so much and I have many regrets - but I was blessed with having you and your dad in my life. Thank you for bringing me the joy and laughter in your short life. Love my two special people more than words can say!

I was looking at photo's of you today. You had such a beautiful smile and such sad eyes. As the years pass I yearn to hear the sound of your laughter and feel your arms around me giving me that special hug. Marsha still remembers your magic fingers when you used to rub the tension out of her back. I came a distant second when I tried. You are missed so much not just by me but by your brother who needs you to let him know you are watching over him. Love you with all my heart and soul.

I need to say so much but it seems that there has been so much said already. You know that our hearts are one and our souls are entwined. I don't need to write here every day for you to know how much I miss you. That terrible morning I woke up to find you gone from my bed and ultimately stolen from this world has haunted me for ever. My dearest love you are my soulmate and shall forever be. You know my heart and you know how I weep for you this night. You know how torn I am with the sweet embrace we shared for so long!
I will always love u Trace always
Love your Babygirl

Your brother is lying in hospital at the moment - please gently kiss his cheek and let him know you are always with him. It is times like these that your smile and laughter could make such a difference in our lives.
I am sure you and your dad are watching over him but in times of illness it is even harder to accept that neither one of you can be with him in body.
Love and miss you always
love you always

Three month today since you and your dad were re-united. Sometimes it feels like yers - sometimes like it was yesterday. Still find it so hard to believe that you and your dad are no longer brightening up our home. Love you both and always will

Susan - thank you for the time spent sharing Tracey with me. There is nothing more horrendous to a parent than having to say their last good bye to their child. I am very happy for you and I to get in contact. Unfortunately e-mail addresses cannot be posted on VM so I am not sure how to make contact. .

I have been reading your Daughters memorial pages for several hours now and I am so deeply sorry for the horrendous evil that was perpetrated upon your amazing child and the devastation that has followed... I am also astounded at the many simularities that "our" stories have had in common... I lost my Daughter on January 2nd 2006. at the age of 13... to pneumonia... and when her younger brother recently turned 14... I remarked aloud to him " you are now older than your big sister" and I remember thinking to myself " oh my goodness I hope I didn't just jinx him" and as you spoke about how unfair it was for your younger child to be deprived of the full attention of his mother because of the grief you were experiencing... I too realized that he had lost his very best and closest friend and was now missing out on his time with his Mum... and I was missing out on my time with the most important person in this living world to me... we were going to have to be the support system for one another... and we were able to find a reason to smile & laugh. we now spend "quality" time enjoying things we thought had died along with Hailey... and I am not to proud to say that I wish I had spent more "quality" time with Hailey... although we did have our regular "Girls only Slumber Parties" that onsisted of just her and I watching all her favorite shows & movies... still I wish we had been able to have a thousand more of those nights... and as for living in the past... I wish that were an option... I'd gladly listen to whatever any one wanted to spout at me about how they think I should be living my life if I could have Hailey to complain about them to... but I just wanted to let you know how much your memories of Tracey touched my heart... and to say that I think you are quite talented as a poet... Hailey was a very gifted writer... she wrote over 150 screenplays before she passed away... still have her last unfinished works in a box all waiting for the day they can finally be completed... how I'm not quite sure but there is always hope... right... anyway I was hoping that you wouldn't mind if I were to ask if you were interested in communicating with me in the future? as we have a common understanding of one anothers pain & suffering... *email addresses cannot be posted on vm*...
