We had only met Tralee a couple of times, but our son Nick was friends with her. She helped him out tremendously after the death of his sister in January. It took a very special person to do that.

I had the privilege of working with Tralee at Hollister. Just in the short while I knew her, I came to really like her. She was always smiling and had such a way about her that others wanted to be around her. Tralee, you will truly be missed. To Tralee's family, may JESUS give you comfort and peace in this very hard time in your lives. By His grace may you begin to smile and bring joy to other's lives, just as Tralee did.

Tanja and family,
My heart goes out to you and your family. I will keep you and yours close in thought and prayer. I pray you feel the Comfort of our Lord wrap around you to console you in a very deep, meaningful and special. A friend of mine recently went through a very difficult time. I would like to share some words with you that provided comfort to her... The Key to happiness is acceptance. The Key to contentment is brokenness.
If you have ever been broken you are closer than you have ever been to the source of contentment, for THE LORD IS NEAR TO THE BROKENHEARTED.(Psalm 34:18)
When you are broken you finally understand there is nothing/ no one who can truly satisfy the hunger/thirst or heal the hurt/pain but Christ.
In our brokenness we discover HE is enough. GODLINESS WITH CONTENTMENT IS GREAT GAIN. (I Tim. 6:6)
Hoping you experience grace, peace and mercy.
-- Susan McCloy
