Dear Traci, I miss you so very much. You made me appreciate myself for who I am and gave me a new outlook on life that I needed. We all come into this world the same way at birth, but how we exit varies - some go naturally, others get sick and suffer as my brother did with ALS, and sometimes by tragedy. In the blink of an eye you were gone from here, and we never had a chance to say good bye. Traci had a family that loved her very much and made friends with ease. She told me about her childhood and all the things and places that she enjoyed. As we get older, we eventually move out from the care of our parents and have to find our own way. There are many different choices to make; no one knows for sure where they will end up in life. Traci traveled many roads, some wrong turns here and there, but that's what makes us human. Imagine if we were all the same- like cows grazing in the fields; that would make life so boring. She would always say, "If it stops being fun, it is time to move on."
When I first met her, I told Traci that our relationship would be different and unlike any others. I told her I was going to be her last boyfriend and the strange thing is she never said she would be my last girlfriend. Although our time together was a brief moment in time, it felt like we knew each other forever. As we conversed about things we had done and places we went or worked, we realized that our paths had been crossing all along; we both worked at the amphitheater years ago.
When I first started seeing her it wasn't long before I knew that I was crazy in love with her, and we started to make long term plans to share the rest of our lives together. You lived your life Traci- fast and hard and went your own way, had plenty of adventures and enjoyed most of them. Traci told me that she was ready for a change in life and was hoping to find a true love (ME). I can't believe how much we had in common; we shared our secrets and fears on just about everything. She was a very unique person, and she always told it like it was. There was nothing fake about her- what you saw is what you got and there was no holding her back. Traci brought out the best in people and was very upbeat and loved to help others. I have many great memories and it was a pleasure to have known her. Traci- thank you so very much for everything. The last thing she texted me was that she was "the happiest woman in the world" and I never got to tell her that I was the happiest man in the universe... we were perfect for each other. As the pain of losing her continues and the scar on my heart heals, the comfort and joy we shared will last forever. From the both of us- please live your life to the fullest and enjoy whatever you are doing. Have fun and be real to yourself!
With Love - from Andy Parsons (Traci's last boyfriend)
I only knew Traci for a short time, but she was a very caring person and fun to be around. I am thankful that she was part of our family.
She showed so much love for my step-son, Andy and they were so happy together. He was looking for love and someone to share his life with and I felt like she was the perfect one for him. May you rest in peace, Traci. Milton and I will miss you.
Andy's Step Mom
Thank You, Traci
You came along just when our family needed you and we felt like you needed us. The family welcomed you with open arms and you fit right in.
I thank you for loving my son, Andy as well as his son and daughter. It meant alot to me and Janet to know you were there for them. We only had you with us for a few months, but we will remember you for years to come. Rest in peace.
Milton B. Parsons
I only knew Traci for a short time while she was with my brother, but I found her to be a very sweet and caring person. I was glad to know her and am so grateful that she shared her kind-hearted spirit with Andy. My prayers go out to my brother and her family.
It was such a pleasure to meet Traci and welcome her into the Parsons family. Thank you Traci for the twinkle you put in Andy's eyes and the smile you put on his face, but more than that thank you for loving him when he needed it the most. I know he will never forget you as many of us won't. We all were so blessed to have you be a part of our family.
Traci came into my son Andy's life for such a short while, but while they were together, they brought love and happiness to each other. Thank you, Traci, for loving and caring for Andy. I will always remember you with love.
There just are no words that can comfort a family who has lost a daughter, sister and beloved friend. To her parents we send our heartfelt prayers. Rejoice in her memory.
My sincerest condolences on the loss of your loved one on behalf of all of us who choose the two-wheel mode of travel.
Traci came into my life this past fall, when she began dating my father (Andy Parsons). Still bearing with the hurt & anger of my mother walking out of a 30 year marraige a few months prior, along with the only home & life I ever knew, I wanted the best for my Dad! Traci didn't win my approval at first by any means, and I'm sure my admitting that now will make her laugh up there! :) I quickly realized that the two of them were like two peas in a pod, with SO much in common. Watching the two of them these past 6 months has been like watching two teenagers fall madly in love with one another- nothing could break their happiness because they had eachother. My only regret - not having the opportunity to truly thank Traci for the love & happiness she brought to my father's life, which gave me SO much comfort and peace of mind. I wish her life wasn't cut so short, but she has made an everlasting mark on my father's life as well as mine. I will forever be grateful for that and her!
Rest in happiness Traci, up there riding around on your pink bicycle or scooter (in flip flops ofcourse)!
Traci I did not know you, however my thoughts and prayers go out to your loved ones. You are now an Angel. Peace be with you.
You fly with the angels now..but your memory will remain with us, you were loved by many, rest in peace Traci.
I didn't know Ms. Fulgham but her pink scooter stood out among us commuters that travelled with her every day. May she rest in peace.
I was very saddened to hear about Traci. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, her boyfriend, and all her loved ones. She seemed like she was at her happiest the last couple times we spoke.
You will be missed by many, not forgotten by any.
john m. she is in gods hands and we pray for peace for her family
