"Tracy and Brad, I remember when we were little and I said to your mom, " I know this sounds weird but I don't think I ever met you guys " without missing a beat your mom said, "That's because we have known you since the day you were born!" I remember always feeling like she was my second mom and that little sly grin she would get right before she was going to say something funny... I can also still hear her yell ,"Brad-leee!?" and he would answer "Mom-lee!?" She was a great lady and tough as they come. I love you both so much. Love, Tre"

"Tracy and Brad, I will always remember the special times I spent with your family growing up. Mardell was like a second mother to me and one of only 2 people in my life that used my proper birth name religiously. I don?t know how she put up with us? I can still hear her screeching our names when we were trouble. Later in life she always took the time to stop and catch up when we would run into each other. Sending you and your family all my love and prayers for comfort during this difficult time. Hugs, Kristine "
