Tracy (and family),
Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I have never met any of you, but found your story through a mutual friend. What an inspiration and testament of faith! My mom was just diagnosed with stage IV gall bladder cancer and I know we are in for a very tough battle. I pray that we can handle it with the grace and courage that you all did. I send my prayers for peace. May you all experience a new beginning with your angel looking over you, as well.

Godspeed Tracy. We are richer people for having known and loved you. You continue to be an inspiration. Another bright angel on our shoulder.

I don't know what's after this life, but I hope whatever it is has beer. And sunshine. Maybe some pina coladas too. And candy. Tubs and tubs of Rocky Road. Whatever makes your heart quiver and your lips spread into that awesome smile. You deserve the best. Well fought, my dear!

Love you,

I doubt any of us can appreciate how much you will be missed and by how many. Few people touch so many so deeply. Wish with all my heart you could have been here longer. Thanks for teaching us how to live and, then, how to die. Heaven has gained and we have lost a beautiful angel.

Heaven has gained a beautiful angel with a GORGEOUS smile!

I have been quietly following your journey since I met you and your husband at Couples Negril in 2007. I too am a breast cancer survivor.

You give a new meaning to the word STRENGTH, HOPE and COURAGE...what an amazing example you were. Your boys will know that you were a great mom!

GOD Bless

You were such an inspiration for ANYONE fighting this battle, and their families. It was an honor to have known about your journey and how determined you were to fight....just goes to show you that you should always go with your heart as you did. Life is so precious, and you have two little ones who will continue to spread your word and awareness for cancer for many years to come.

The first time I met Tracy, she met me with a big hug. I knew she had to have been an awesome human being to meet a stranger in that way.
My prayers go to you and your family that they see comfort with God's plan.
Much love.

The Unbroken

There is a brokenness out of which comes the unbroken,
a shatteredness out of which blooms the unshatterable.
There is a sorrow beyond all grief
which leads to joy and a fragility out of whose depths emerges strength.
There is a hollow space too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness we are sanctioned into being.
There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing.

~ Rashani ~

Tracy knew a lot about singing.

Tracy- After we met you told me of your blog. I feel blessed to have gotten to know you through your blog. My heart goes out to your family--especially those awesome boys of yours. You deserve a rest though--how hard you have fought the past couple years. May heaven have all the pleasures you could ever dream to be able to indulge in.

God Bless Cortney

Good bye Tracy. You were a true blessing in my life. Without you I would have never had the right outlook on my cancer experience. I also would have never been able to positively impact as many lives as I have so far. Your wonderful beautiful spirit will be a part of me forever and I can only hope to make as big of a difference in the world as you have. Thank you for brightening my life and opening my eyes to the good in the world even with the devastating effects of cancer. You are a inspiration and role model to all who meet you. I love you. Thank you! I hope your family can find some peace by knowing how many people will never forget you, and how many people you have helped.

There aren't enough words in the book to describe the wonderful impact you had on the world and the fight against cancer. You helped me rediscover what it means to be a survivor. You are my hero.

Tracy, I like several others did not know you personally but I have followed your blog through a very close friend of yours. What a strong fighter you were. Such an inspiration! I will pray for your family as they have lost someone so special. I hope they find comfort in knowing you are their angel and with them always in spirit. RIP

After Glow
I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after glow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve,
to dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.

How does a person say, "Thank you for being such a beautiful friend?" Simply by saying, "You are loved, Tracy Harnly, and you will be missed. You glowed, girl. And now, you will glow from Heaven." Good-bye, pretty lady . . . for now.

I've never understood why the Good ones have to leave this earth so young either. I don't understand it today & I don't know if I ever will. I guess that’s why they say we’ll be able to make sense out of things like this at another time. Maybe it's because God needs the most TERRIFIC ANGELS with him now, so we always have a Guardian Angel by our side. I have a feeling Tracy is busier than ever, guarding all of those who love her so much. I pray for her family to find comfort and peace knowing she is no longer in pain and smile because of the impact she made on soooo many...so many lives that she had never met! She was more than a wonderful woman, she was and will always be remembered an honorable, graceful woman with so much integrity! She will be missed, but her memory & legacy will live on forever!

"I give you this one thought to keep-
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone - I am with you still - in each new dawn."

GOD BLESS to ALL of her family!

What Heaven is happy for: YOU!

You have touched me as if you were a close friend or family member. You seem to have had a charisma about you that not all of us have to share, in that you have been one of the chosen to lead as an angel.

We have been blessed to follow in this journey and I know that I will not take today, tomorrow or future time for granted. Cherish each moment.

You willbe missed by many and SHINE bright in heaven.

Such charisma & grace...that is Tracy, which is also an angel! I wish I would have had the opportunity to meet Tracy in person, but meeting her through her blogs did show exactly what type of person she was. It's ashamed there aren't more people out there like Tracy. She taught so much. She taught me how to live and not sweat the small stuff.

Skye-You probably don't remember me...my mom and I drove you around in the golf cart at Making Strides in October. Your mature, sincere, helpful personality really touched me. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Take care.

While I never met Tracy, she has made such an impact on me. She was a true hero sent from God, and now she is with him. I am so sorry for your loss, but I hope that it gives you peace knowing that she is with our Maker, happy, healthy, and pain free. Tracy will always be such an inspiration to so many of us. The had the kindness, endurance, and strength that few people have nowdays. Her attitude was infectious even through her text on her blog. I am so thankful, as are many, that Tracy and her family could share her epic story. She will deeply be missed by so many. I can only hope that I will be able to meet her in the afterlife. So often is doesn't seem fair that such good, kind people pass on what seems to be way too early. I can only hope and have faith that there is a reason for it. We all truly have one amazing angel looking out for all of us and fighting for a cure for cancer on a completely different level. He story and name will live on long after her time here on earth.

Rest in peace Tracy, you will be very missed and always thought about. Much love!

I have met you maybe once before thru my husband...and he too was responsible for introducing me to your blog...which I checked in and read freqeuently. You are such a gift to not only your boys and your family, but to this whole world. Your strength and courage is something I need to strive for on a daily basis. You have made me realize to not sweat the petty stuff...and I tell my kids I love them daily but you have made me stop and remember to cherish them everday too. I truly hope one day a cure is found, but for now, I take comfort in knowing there are angels in heaven like you! God Bless!
