It still feels very surreal, and I can’t believe you have passed on. I keep expecting to see you at events here in town. RIP Tracie Ward. You were an amazing person to know. Your vision, your straightforwardness, and your passion will be missed so much. The effects of your influences on every community you lived in will be felt for many years to come. You were much loved and even more respected in this city than you could ever imagine. My sincere condolences to your family, and all of your friends.
