My name is Mark Wagaman and I'm Tracie Wagamans older brother. Unfortunately she has recently passed away. Our family is deeply saddened with our loss. We know she had many friends and followers who were pulling for her. We greatly appreciate all the positive comments you have posted and sent.
Tracie was always that annoying younger siblings. I remember her dressing up our dogs growing up and thinking she was crazy. She loved dogs. I remember her dressing up as Old Mother Hubbard in a school play. She ran track in Junior High and was always faster than me. Her and I became really close after high-school. I took her to Mexico for the first time. We'd go to the lake and jump off of the damn. She always wanted to be with her nephews. I remember her driving 8 hours one time just to see them. She had a heart of gold. I had some medical issues a few years back and wasn't able to work. She gave me $500 so I could catch up on bills. If you had the chance to meet her I guarantee she would consider you a friend. She was such a people person.
We would like to use the money to pay for her funeral. If additional money is raised we will put a portion of it in a savings account for her son and if at all possible her daughter. We want to donate the remainder of the money to a domestic violence organization that will be named later.
Thank you again for the reaching out to us and for all the podive podcasts and comments you've posted on social media.
