My Heart goes out to Tracey’s Entire Family. Shawna has been her Mom’s support & decision maker through the years. She followed her Mom’s wishes as should be. This has been more than rough. Tracey has passed down her Iron Will to her daughter & she rose to every occasion of love, loyalty, & trust for her Mom. We stand in awe of that. It has been quite the legacy of love to have been witnessed too. Walk proud, Shawna… square back your shoulders and carry on with no guilt. You said all & you’ve done all.
As for Lisa, Tracey’s little sister, I say to you… you helped in Tracey’s care through Shawna even caring physically for Tracey daily at CCC with you as her Certified Nurses Aide. You have been a powerful force in all the years. We are all proud of you & your testimony of loving a Sister with MS. No stone was left unturned. You did good.
My heart is full of love for you all & sad. My prayers for you all as you navigate through this profound grief. Said with mountains of respect
