My heartfelt condolences go out to Tracie, Travis, Lindsay, McKenzie, and families. I know how very hard it is to lose a mother and grandmother, even though she is happy and doing much better now. I pray that you will keep the good memories of her in your hearts and minds forever and that God may be with you and comfort you until you meet again.
