That was beautiful picture of a beautiful person. I am going to miss you very much tracie
Tracie, from the first time we met we loved you and over the years you were like our own, the boys all think of you as their big sister and are missing you now and forever. You will always be our girl and your children will be a part of our family and we are there if they ever need us. RIP and you are now with Jim again. Love you Mom & Dad Boszko.
May you fly free and watch over the kids. You are now with Jim, Danielle, your dad and Clarence.
I will miss you my friend. You fought a courageous battle but are now finally at peace. My sincerest condolences to your family and especially your children, Nicole, Jessica and Thomas. Your mom loved you dearly, please always remember that. Love Sam & Jeff.
Nicole, Jessica, Thomas and all your family and loved ones… I am in deep shock and sadness at the news of your dear mom’s passing. Thank you Nikki for posting this so I would know that her Facebook posts and our messages to each other … will now be a treasured memory of a person I admired and loved deeply. Your mom was so very dear to me and I will never forget her or our times of chatting, laughing and being positive for each other since those St. Gerard days/years. Truly… getting to know her, becoming her friend and of course being someone I could help or encourage during the years I taught you children… was one of the few positive memories I had… of my time at St. Gerard. My husband and I will never forget the mornings we practically raced to school to see who would get there first remember? Your mom and you Jess and Thomas… would pass us and she’d give us her “ha-ha-ha” giggle and thumbs up because she beat us again! When you lost your dad so suddenly and unexpectedly… your mom was a model of strength and love for you -her children- and a role model to so many for her acceptance of difficult times but hope for your future. Her brave and stubborn battle to try and beat cancer… to be there for you all… just sadly… did now take the last bit of her energy and life. If there can be any consolation in this… it is that she no longer has to suffer, fight and can be reunited with your dad whom she loved and missed … so very very much. My prayers and love are reaching out to you as always… and please know you can contact me if you need a listening ear, advice, a hug or whatever else I can support you with. Please let me know when you plan a service in her honour as I would hopefully be included to be there for her and all of you. I’m sure she would be happy to see me there and know I will miss her so much – especially our Facebook friendship these past years. She was a sister to me and we both appreciated each other. God bless you all and hold onto each other the way your mom would always want you to. She will be watching over you always… and know you have her strength and love inside you to help you get through the difficult days and years ahead. I will pray the rosary for you all… and ask Mother Mary in heaven to comfort you and help you keep your faith and trust in God and that His way is always loving – even if we don’t understand it or have the willingness to let go when we want to hold on…. xoxo for each of you. Please keep in touch.
Auntie Tracie you will be missed but memories will live in our hearts .
Our condolences and Love to the white family
Love cousins Theresa (Lomas) ,Brent , Bailey and Brandon Cmolik
You once gave me a candle, a long time ago; a life time ago. I have always kep that candle because the words that are written on it mean so much to me:
Sister: Through the ups and downs, your love and support are a light. Your presence is a gift I can always count on as the bond we have found is everlasting.
I miss you Tracie and I love you. I always have and I always will. Rest in peace my dear sister.
Nikki, Jessica, and Thomas
Shocked cannot describe my feeling when I got the news about your mom. Tracie was a sweet and caring person to all at St. Gerard. We spent many hours in the office chatting, laughing, solving problems of our own and sometimes others. She was always willing to help out in school any time we needed her and we did!! Your mom had a very positive attitude towards life and hope she instilled that in all of you. She was so brave when you lost your dad she had positive strength to carry on for all of you. I pray that all of you can give each other support, a shoulder to lean on when times get difficult. Live your lives as she would have wanted you to and make her and your dad proud as they will be watching over you. When times get tough, and they will, remember that she is free and no longer in pain. What lucky children you are to have had a loving and caring mother and she always felt she was blessed with three beautiful souls called Nikki, Jessica, and Thomas.
I will miss Tracie and know that you will make her proud as the young adults that you are. May she rest in peace.
