Hi everyone. I'd like to thank all of you who have been sending along your kind thoughts. I really appreciate all of the sentiments.
I also would like to call your attention to a tribute to Traci that my good friend Steve Goldman wrote about her in his column on Monday. Here is the link: http://pinstripedbible.mlblogs.com/archives/2009/09/people_and_records_gone_but_no.html I'd urge you to go read it. He has some wonderful things to say about Traci, and equates her with my hero, Lou Gehrig. Very insightful, particularly since he only met Traci once. Thank you very much, Steve. You've earned my utmost gratitude for your kindness and friendship.
Traci's funeral is today. Her clergy call the service a celebration of her life, and I know that's what Traci would want. Please think of our family today, and make sure you give those you love a little extra attention today. Thanks.
