I was saddened to learn of Tracy's passing from yesterday's article in the Richmond Times Dispatch. While I have not seen Tracy for over 15 years, I often thought of her and wondered how she might be living her life. I am pleased that she was able to follow her passions and liver her life to the fullest. God bless you Tracy.
Tracy you are a bright light wherever you!
So sorry to hear about Tracy. Was most impressed when I read of her accomplishments.

I got to know Tracy through her dad who is one of my favorite people and I found her always to be in good spirits, doing something adventurous and in impeccable shape! Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bill, Betsy and the rest of Tracy's family.
Tracy - I can't believe that you're gone and we just started to email each other! Although we didn't keep in touch much through the years, I've always considered you as my sister. You will be dearly missed by many. Love you Tracy.
Tracy accomplished more in her short time than most in their entire lives. Rest in peace Tracy and I hope you are an inspiration to many others.
My heart goes out to the Schrage family as well. I hope you all find peace in knowing Tracy is no longer suffering. Love to you all!
My thoughts are with you during this painful time. What a lovely young woman. May the good memories warm your heart.
Fondly, Marianne Roser
Tracy was truly a person of great strength and courage, and an inspiration to all. It was an honor to work with her and to know her. She will always have a special place in my heart.
The Richmond Retired Firefighters Association is truly sorry that Tracy lost this battle. Our thoughts and prayers have been with you all along. May you now rest in Gods arms and be at peace.
"I have fought a good fight, I have finished the race, and I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing." 2 Timothy 4:7, 8.
The sorrow of the faithful is not that of permanent loss, but the tender sense of sadness that comes in saying good-bye for now to someone we love.
May today's sorrow give way to the peace and comfort of God's love.
It will be the little things that you will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again.

Tracy was my friend, I was very lucky to laugh with her, have a cold beer with her, and never have to run against her. She was a special person.....I will miss her

We've only met once, but how incredible it was to have known such a wonderful and courageous person. Thoughts and prayers, with love from me and Cooper.
Tracy,I will always think of you when I drive by station 12,We had great times their.You will always be remembered as a hard worker.
In high school, Tracy loved photography and we took so many pictures in DC. My favorites we of the graffiti and China Town. Rest in peace, friend. xo
I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to meet you in this lifetime. I kept wanting you to fight because I wasnt ready to let you go like so many others. Your strength and courage has inspired us all. Ward and I will miss visiting you in the hospital ...I will miss texting you to see how you are doing. Im so glad I got to meet Meredith and your mom and sister. You became my friend. We love you and we miss you but I know God has you in a healed body free of pain and suffering now. Amen.. You fought so hard But God needed you with him now...there are more mountains in Heaven for you to climb! You will always be remembered and in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks for being a friend.
Tracy, we will miss you and always remember all you have done. Maybe we should put your name on that rock wall at the Tuckahoe Y! It sure has grown from our opening staff of 5 out there. You did that! I am thankful for running into you at different outdoor adventure races through the years. The next Tri is for you girl.
Rest in peace Tracy. If I could do half the things you have done in your life here on earth, then I would be able to say I've lived a full life, what a wonderful inspiration you are! You & you're family & Meredith will always be in our hearts & we are better people for having met you...Love & prayers, ~Gina P.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
