Funeral services for Tracy Rabey

Our dad Tracy died unexpectedly on November 30th, 2017. Unfortunately, he did not have life insurance due to a lifelong struggle with alcohol addiction and frequent employment changes. He vigorously tried to escape from the grasp of addiction and never stopped fighting.  He spent countless years finding new sponsors, going to different rehabs, acquiring new jobs, living in sober houses, and trying programs all in the hopes of someday being the kind of dad he so desperately desired to be.  Anyone who knew our dad knew just how tragic his story with addiction was. He was trapped in a struggle with seemingly no way out. We wish so dearly that this story didn't end the way it did and that we could have had more time with our father. We would have given anything to make our father well so he could live his life happily, as the charismatic loving father that lay behind the disease.  We can not change how things ended, we cannot fix him anymore, and nothing will heal the wounds and anguish that this tragedy has brought us. That being said we would like to celebrate our dad. He was so much more than his addiction and we ask of our friends and family to help us during this time. We would like to use donations to put on a ceremony to commemorate his life. We would also like to allocate funds to us, his three children, to help with college and others daily needs. Without our father's financial support and without life insurance we are in a difficult position.  We thank you for all your support.
