Message from Tracy's family
« on: December 09, 2004, 18:05:18 pm »
Dear Parents and Children, To all those who were blessed by Tracy.

I am sad to announce that Tracy, my mother passed away on November 25th 2004 after a long battle with Melanoma Cancer. Post an eosphojectamy in 2001 Tracy prayed and worked her self back to a state of health, never moving far from her consults and talking with families and helping troubled little ones. Even from her bed she made notes and wrote her third book, with all her strength I watched this beautiful flower, my mum, wilt a little each day, her rays of sunshine came from phone calls and letters which would light every cell in her body to hear how people were doing.

Until her dying day she made sure she instilled into me her teachings and knowledge and love for what she did, a true diamond on this earth Tracy has left this. Her everything was in her work and in her understanding of helping parents at such critical times in their lives.

As her eldest daughter Sara, I would like to thank you for all your love and support and I made a promise to my mother that I will carry on her legacy and in remembrance of her work keep the portal open for her to help me from above carry the message, to have parents help parents, and know that there is always a solution to every problem and the number one solution is LOVE, and that love, patience, practice and perseverance are the most important ingredients in overcoming and "fixing" everything.

I was blessed to call her my Mother. She was not only a mentor she was my breeze, always lifting me to be better, and also to my sister, Sophie she was a best friend, filled with so much compassion and love and the patience of a rock. I feel blessed to have been taught by her and have a part of her with me always.

God bless to you all, as she would say to me, don't ever stop learning as life is short so live it while you can.

Sara.

Sara,

Thanks so much for posting.  Your mother was an inspiration to so many here.  It's wonderful to know that you hope and plan to carry on her work.  She was so talented and in tune with the needs of babies -- that is such an incredible gift for her to have passed on to you.

We would love to see you around the boards more when you feel able to; we welcome you with open arms.

Deepest sympathies to you, your sister and family.

Sara, I am so sorry for your loss.  Your mother was loved and respected by many parents all over the world.  She has been an angel to us when we needed a light to help guide us through the many phases of our babies' developments.  Thank you for keep the love and legacy going.

Sara

Thank you so much for taking the time to post at this very trying time in your family's life.

So many of us here felt that we knew Tracy even though we had never met her in person.  

Her legacy will live on because she gives hope to all new parents that they can do it even in the darkest moments of teething, night wakings and short naps.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful mother with us.

She truly does live on, through her teachings, and all of us are better parents because of her.  I only have to look at my two beautiful children to know that they are much happier, well adjusted kids, because of your mother.

I am so sorry for your loss, and although I never met her in person, it is my loss too. :cry:

It's so wonderful to know that you will be carrying on with your mothers work.  In that way what she believed in with continue to live on and help many other parents and babies to whisper happily!
My condolances to you and your family.  I, too, have recently lost someone close to me, my sister, and so can understand a little of what you must be going through right now.
I echo what diego's mamma said, we would love to hear from you again sometime in the future.
Your mother will be missed and remembered by so many!
Thank you for sharing her with us and for carrying on her important work!

It was with such great sadness that we learnt of your mum's departure.  My husband and eldest daughter were really saddened because they knew how much Tracy's work meant to me!  

She will be sorely missed.  Thank you for your message.

Watching my Mom slowly lose her battle with cancer was the hardest thing I have ever done.  My heart goes out to you both.  Thank you for taking the time to post here during this time, and for recognizing your Mom is missed by so many.

Tracy was a special lady, and I know she is watching over us all.

Take care and much Love

Dear Sara and Sohie,

I just found out the loss of your mother.  My deepest sympathy goes to you both.

I found your mother's book when I gave birth to my son 19 months ago.  I am a working mother and was afraid that if I will be a good mother and able to return to work without sleepless nights.

I've read many books on the subject and one was your mother's.  Your mother's advise was the most kind approach to the babies and I've followed her advise every step of the way.  When I had questions, I consulted this web site.  As a result of following your mother's advise, my son is a very well rested and adjusted happy toddler now and we get joy from him each and everyday.

I'm glad to hear that you will be following your mother's footsteps.  I hope that every mother and baby in this world will continue to benefit from your mother's work.

Your mother will always have a special place in my heart.

My prayer is with you and your family.

Sincerely,
Fumie

Couldn't have made it without Tracy

Sara,

Thank you so much for your posting, your mother was an angel and truly a blessing to so many.  I was so fortunate to have had the opportunity to talk with her several times. She has been my life line in taking care of our baby boy Connor who suffers with severe acid reflux.  When we thought there was no hope and we literally were not going to survive, Tracy came into our lives, she was our miracle.  To this point we receive little support from the Dr's and were on our own.  Her loving heart and remarkable knowledge of babies was the answer we had been praying for!  I have never meet anyone with such a big heart, gentle soul and loving spirit.  I am so sad at the news of her passing, but am so happy to hear that you will continue to carry on her legacy.

My deepest sympathys to you, your sister and family.

When I was emailed a few weeks ago re: your mother's death I couldn't believe it.

It was Tracy who I discovered in an issue of parenting magazine(2001) and it helped me so much.  She helped make it E.A.S.Y.  I send you my condolances.

I now know the World was a better place with her and her legacy lives on.

God Bless
Marcie
