    Lula, I am so sorry to hear of Tracy’s passing. He was truly a special man and he will be missed. Mother and I don’t get the paper anymore so I didn’t know until this afternoon (Wednesday) or I would have been at the funeral home last night. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. We’ll keep you and your family in our prayers.
