Tracy was a sweet guy. He loved life and was a people person. He loved his family very much and they loved him.

Tracy's mom would call him each morning to talk to him before he left for work. On Jan 3, it was like any other morning Faye thought. Except Tracy did not answer his phone. Faye kept calling him and did not get an answer.

She got dressed and drove over to Tracy's apt. She used the key he had given her. The door would not open. It was as if someone or something was holding it shut.

She went back to her car to use the phone to try to call him again. Still no answer. She walked back up the stairs once again.

This time, she met a guy coming down the stairs. He mumbled something and kept walking. When Faye got to the door it was not completely closed. She pushed it open and went inside. Faye was calling out Tracy's name. She saw him laying on the couch and went over to him, thinking he might have over slept. She needed to wake him, to get him up, to go to work. He did not move and would never move again..

Faye called the police soon Tracy's apt was full of officers. Tracy had been shot in the forehead and his apt had things taken out of it.

When the police had their suspect charged. It was the guy Faye had met walking down the steps of Tracy's apartment complex. Thank God, Faye was not 5 or 10 earlier or she would also be gone.. That animal was the one holding the door closed with his body pushed up against it.

Tracy will always be missed and loved by his family and friends. When that animal murdered Tracy he took a part of us, that we will never get back.

He took a beloved son, brother, grandson, husband, father, nephew, cousin, and friend. A man that had his whole life ahead of him. A father that needed to be in his baby girl's life and watch her grow up. He took all of this away from us..

Please help us to remember Tracy by leaving him a token and note. Thanking you from the bottom of my heart.
