There is a story behind the pen picture. A number of us had gathered in the mountains for a first ever NCWW west picnic. A number of eastern folks made a weekend of it. Anyway the night before the picnic a bunch of us went to dinner at a local restaurant. Tracy was so proud of his first pen. He showed it off to everyone one. He had done a great job. Anyway the waitress remarked she had never seen a home made wooden pen. Tracy smiled, turner and without a blind of the eye gave it to her. He was all heart like that. Miss you Brother.

he was a great guy and i'm sure sorely missed by his family and friends closer than i as i miss my online buddy


I REALLY miss him - unfortunately I cannot say I knew him as well as most of you. But I worked closely with him getting advertisements up on the site. I can say he sure made it easy on me! Whatever I gave him he worked with it and "Made it work!" I will miss him and am disappointed that I will not get to know him better. Well, hopefully, he is working on the "good guys" database or has a corner somewhere where we will be able to catch-up and tell stories long into the future when I see him again!

He was a great guy and sorely missed. I'm not sure he ever met a stranger. RIP Tracy
