RIP Tracey (from her Hubby)
Eric here Traceys husband as you know Tracey passed away on the 1st February 2013 i would like to thank each one of you ladies as you were an INSPIRATION to Tracey and myself during her time here.
Her funeral was attended by over 300 people which showed to me, how many she touched during her brief stay with us.
We collected over $1,800 dollars on the day in donations to go to the firefighters charity fund Melbourne which i am a board member and Tracey had a lot of input the charity when we set it up, we will be ondonating the money raised on the day and via our web page to Otis Foundation Bendigo in Traceys memory.
Tracey wrote a poem about a tree on The Otis Braemare property where we stayed a few time to recharge our souls.
A tree can be burnt, lose limbs or even be diseased, but it continues to grow. So can we!
It doesn’t matter how much we have been burnt by radiation, or if we have had parts of our body removed.
We need to EMBRACE the life we do have and continue to grow despite our hurdles.
-- Tracey Anderson
I had this printed on the back of Tracey's bookmarks that were handed out on the day. I am getting more printed up this week and without sounding tacky if anybody would like one I can send them to BCNA or I can post one out to you if you wish my email is ectheviking@**** all I need is a name and address and I will pop it in the mail for you.
Once i get things settled down I will write a story for The Beacon to let every one know that the fourm girls and Tracey are an Inspiration to me as well.
Well on that note - Good Luck - be strong and live every day to the fullest and be like me tell the one you love, that you love them every day.
Love to you all
