Tracie Blazei Obituary, Death – Tracie Blazei has died. The recollections that she will carry with her forever. I shall miss the way you would initiate the planning process for our next family gathering. You were our glue. When I first saw you, the first thing that went through my mind was, “This girl is badass.” (At the time, you were also six months pregnant with Morgan Lee.) Your presence was something that could be felt.
I will never forget that day. Your eyes. Your demeanor. Intimidating. Concerned about the identity of the woman who is seen frequently with your younger brother. The final sister of the Symons family to be brought together. Then there was your voice; it was simply so comfortable, lovely, and reassuring. You smiled at me, and everything changed after that…I am going to miss our private laughs together as well as your charming little chuckle.
I will miss how much love you had for our Jills, and I will never forget the fact that you were the first person to see her in the hospital during the swine flu outbreak, when no one else was permitted in. You still got in there to hold her despite the fact that nothing could have stopped you. I’m going to miss having stimulating chats with you… we had plenty. Your insight and opinion on various matters, as well as assistance and encouragement, and the knowledge you’ve gained from your experiences. It will be strange not hearing you refer to us as “Grandma’s” and “Brats” in your usual tone. Your voice. Your chuckle.
