  1. I am broken hearted. Tracie was my very first friend when I moved to Hitchcock in 3rd grade, 40 years ago. She introduced herself by saying, “Hi, I’m Tracie!”. What that meant to a new kid in town… there are no words. I always looked up to her and will love her forever. Rest in peace, beautiful Tracie.

  3. We will miss you Tracie. Thanks be to God that I had the privilege to have known you as a coworker and friend. Tracie will forever be in my heart as a kind person with a good heart and devotion to her work. She always tried so hard to excel in everything she did.

  6. I will miss Tracie’s beautiful smile and that awesome laugh. Even when she was sad or troubled she would never let anyone know. I don’t think she ever met a stranger and she always had great hugs. I will miss those things the most about Tracie. I know she hated to leave you, Justin and Zak but you couldn’t ask for a better angel to watch over you. I pray that you will find some comfort and peace in all this madness.

  7. I am so very sorry to hear of this terrible loss. I am honored that I was her friend and coworker, for at least a few years. She was such genuine person and a wonderful human being. My thoughts and prayers are with Justin and Zak and all those who loved her. May the peace that only God can bring settle in your hearts. Too many, too young. CANCER must be stopped.

  8. To hear that Tracie has received her wings so soon saddens me but at the same time I know that God does not make mistakes. Tracie and I were cheerleaders together at Hitchcock High. We hung out together and kept each other’s secrets as young girls often do. She was a very sweet and kind person. May the family find peace in knowing that she is resting now. My thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.

  9. My heart is sadden to hear that Tracie is no longer with us, Tracie and I graduated together from Hitchcock High, Class of 1985. I will always remember how Tracie smile lit up the room when Justin and I came back from a Men’s ACTS Retreat. I had a chance to sit and talk with Tracie about old times. I really enjoyed that. Tracie was one of kind. Love You Justin My Brother In Christ. God is Good All the Time, All the Time God is Good. Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

  11. My heartfelt condolences to all that loved & knew Tracie. I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing her since high school, but I know she was kind & sweet. Rest in peace.

  12. I only knew Tracie for a very short time. I got to know her best the year I coached Little League baseball and Zak was on my team. At my age and for the number of years I’ve coached, I would honestly say that I’ve never met a more genuine and sweet person. People throughout there lives have happy days and angry days. I can’t even imagine what Tracie would look like angry. That’s just not Tracie. To gage what a special person Tracie was, one would only has to look at how much she is loved by Justine and Zak. Justine, you and Zak will remain in our prayers. God Bless!

  13. Tracie is a beautiful reflection of God’s love for us: giving, kind, fun, tender, affectionate, full of laughter, grace and selflessness. She didn’t have a spiteful bone in her body and never met a stranger. She was a second mom to our son Caleb. We are so thankful the Lord blessed us with the friendship of Tracie, Justin and Zak. She has deeply touched and changed my life and I will be ever grateful. Though she isn’t here with us, her love for her friends, family and especially Justin and Zak will never cease all because of God’s design. Selfishly, I am jealous of her family who’ve passed before her because they get to see her beautiful, radiant face and hear her sweet, precious voice. Through tears I sing praises to the Lord that she is completely healed and with her Father, her King, the Most High God. I miss her and love her deeply. She finished her race well and definitely deserves to be celebrated!

Her loss will be greatly felt by the family-she was a wonderful and sweet person who touched many lives. She has earned her silver wings and will soaring with God and her parents. RIP sweet Tracie your time here on earth is done.

  15. I’ve known Mrs. Tracie since kindergarten, when Zak and I meet each other at the neighborhood pool. She was like a second mom to me. It felt like I could always talk to her about anything. When I was younger I almost saw her every day because she walked Zak and I back to their house, even if it was raining. Every day I think about the Waggoner’s, they will always be in my heart and mind.
    I love yall like family! Zak I think of you as my brother!

  16. Justin, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your son during this most difficult time. I had the opportunity to work with Tracie for a while at UTMB. She was a beautiful person both physical and inner beauty. I know that she will be sadly missed by all those who knew her and whose lives she touched along her journey her on earth. May she rest in peace now in the arms of our dear Lord and Saviour.

  20. Justin and Zak, my heart goes out to you both.

    Justin, Brittany chose you and Tracie as Mychal’s Godparents knowing that you two would love him like your own…And you have. I remember when Brittany was a baby how sweet you were with her. You would look at her and just smile. I was so happy when she told me that she had asked you two to be Mychal’s Godparents-how fitting! She has loved you, Tracie and Zak from day one.

    Tony and I had the pleasure in attending your lovely wedding. The bond that you and Tracie had will never be broken…She’s just in another room praying for you and Zak.

    As you might know, I lost the love of my life in November. Please forgive me for not attending the services. My thoughts and prayers have been with Tracie, you and Zak and I will continue to hold y’all in my heart.
