S: Happy 50th Birthday Tracy

BC: The End

FC: Tracy

1: To our sweet and precious daughter, mother, friend, and sister in Christ. We love you!

4: Miss Ada

7: Dear Tracy, The past 18, 250 days of loving you has been such a joy, a delight, and a precious blessing. I am so very proud of you as my daughter and as the mother of my two wonderful granddaughters. Your life and your accomplishments have far exceeded even my wildest hopes and dreams. It i s hard to believe that you are actually fifty. You will always be my little girl. May God continue to bless you in your every endeavor. Love, Mom

9: Fun memories of Tracy from her dad: Tracy was a pretty & sweet girl who was small but wiry and strong. We had her fitted for glasses when she was in 3rd grade. I felt bad because she had not seen well for sometime. For example, she pointed out that she could see the separate leaves on trees. We usually think of children with vision problems not reading too well, but this was not the case with Tracy. Tracy was five when we moved to Ada from Hays, Kansas. She had developed her early speech in Kansas and appropriately rounded out her "i's" as Kansans do. When she had been in Ada for about 1 week, one of her friends asked her how old she was. Tracy said "Ah'm five" in a totally Oklahoma dialect. Kids pick up dialect quickly. I was with Tracy and one of her little girlfriends when somebody saw us and called me Dr. Frame. The friend asked Tracy "is your daddy a doctor?". Tracy said, "Yes, but not the kind who helps people." (She was five) Tracy once told me that I scared her boyfriends. This puzzled me. Tracy had beautiful auburn hair with a bit of natural wave in it. I was amazed that I could wash and comb it and have it look like she had gone to the beauty shop when it was dry. Tracy was generally very precise with her language even when very young. But she would amuse me when she was quite young and would twirl herself around and around to make herself dizzy. She would then say, "I'm busy! I'm busy!" | Dear Tracy, I just wanted to say thank you for your kindness to me and my mom, Edna Carothers. After her stroke, and while she was living with me and your dad, you came and stayed the weekend with her. This gave me the chance to clean out her house and get ready for the sad garage sale. You will never know how much I appreciated you help. Mother was always very fond of you and your girls and full of advice. Thank You, Mary Ann

13: Tracy & her precious girls

14: You are more than a mother to me, you're my hero. You have sacrificed EVERYTHING for me and have been there for me through the good and bad. You have been my rescuer many times and I love you! I thank God every day that he chose you to be my mother. You are strong and courageous. You are one of my biggest spiritual influences and I love you with everything that I am. I hope to someday be as great of a mother to my kids as you have been to me. Happy 50th Birthday Mom! You are the BEST... I LOVE YOU!!! Without you by my side to guide me, I know that I would not be where I am now. Thank you. I love you, my beautiful Mother... my Hero! - Megan

15: I thank God that He gave me you as a mother. He knew that I would need a strong God-fearing mother. We have been through storms and hurdled mountains. Thank you for your never ending patience and unconditional love throughout the years. I would not be where I am without you. I love you so much that mere words can not express. You have always been my mother, in these later years you have become one of my best friends. Thank you for being you. Happy 50th Birthday mommy!! - Tara

17: 5-19-10 Dearest Tracy, WOW!!! Where do I begin?? Let's start with the fact that I met you when you were turning 35 (15 years ago). I remember that was the year you started counting backwards for your birthdays. That makes you a young, beautiful 20 year old. Do you really want to be 20 again? After all we have been through, I doubt it!! After I got the call that they were throwing you a 50th birthday party and they needed my help with monumental pictures and some words of wisdom (actually, I think they wanted some dirt on you)... I took a moment to cry because I cannot be there to share this moment with you (really, I did.. not surprised are you?). I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND YOU HAVE MEANT SO MUCH TO ME! Next, I started looking for pictures. You will notice that most of my pictures are not of you and me, together. They are mostly of you doing something for me--my maid of honor, my children's 2nd mother, my friend that traveled to come see me in Phoenix, my dear friend that took care of my mom and dad when I could not be there to do so, my dance partner, my colleague, my co-hort, and most importantly, my spiritual mentor. As I looked at all these pictures (and others I have), I realized that you never expected anything from me. You just gave me all that you had of yourself. You stood on the side-lines and supported me through every crying session and emergency phone call. You gave me hope through gentle reminders of God's grace. You lifted me up when I couldn't lift myself up. You pointed me in God's direction, continually lifting my face to Him.. not to my own problems. Thank you for that; you will NEVER know how much your Christian support and friendship has meant to me and my family. I wish I had more pictures of "you and I', however, I am honored and blessed to see how much you have been a part of the background of my life. Thank You. We've been through tough times, happy times, CRAZY times, scary times, through times of unbelievable sadness and unbelievable joy. How blessed I am to have you in my life. 50 years old! I think of Saturday Night Live and "I'm 50, I'm loving it, and I can kick". You can kick... dancing queen, that is for sure. I noticed that if the pictures weren't of you being in the background to support me, they were of you dancing or dressed for dancing in 70's garb. I love it! I will always remember you as the friend of mine who could "really" dance... not just move on the floor. Thank you for the memories, thank you for the friendship, thank you for your love and continual support. Happy 50th (or 20th) Birthday, Tracy! I truly wish I could be there!! We will have to celebrate this summer. I love you, Your friend for life and in God's Kingdom to come! Kim Anothayanontha

18: Beauty truly is greater than skin deep & you are living proof. Thank you for always being there. Happy 50th Birthday! Love, Ronda | Tracy, It has been so much fun working with you for the past ten years and also having you as a cherished friend. I personally have learned so much from you from our work to having to deal with so many different types of people. I have always thought that you are the female part of George and this is why you share his birthday. (Notice that I excluded Hazel!!!). Welcome to our side of the hill. Kathy | My most memorable event with Tracy took place shortly after I came to work at Saffa IV. As a newcomer to Tulsa with few friends, I remember Tracy coming into my office one day and asking me to come over to her house and meet her friends for a get-together. Even though I wasn't able to take her up on her offer, I would like her to know how much that welcome meant to me. Her warmth truly makes working at Saffa IV a little more like home. Love, Linda

19: Tracy is such a kind and sweet person. She always makes people feel so welcome and she is friendly to everyone she comes in contact with. Beth | Dear Tracy, It has been a joy and a blessing to have known you these 6+ years. You always have an encouraging word when I need one, and I appreciate how you make me and others feel welcomed and special. One of my memories of way-back-when, is when we went together to Grove for a Synagis Clinic. We had some good conversations on that long trip getting to now one another. And you made me feel comfortable, even though I was unsure of doing a clinic by myself for the first time. I knew then that you could be trusted not only as a co-worker, but as a friend as well. You radiate God's love with your smile, words, and actions and you are an example for me to follow. I hope you have a great birthday celebration. Happy 50th!! Love, Lisa Davis

20: Tracy, You are a caring, responsible, and loyal person that is never praised enough. Your faith sets you apart and certainly is contagious. I have never told you how proud I am that you represent the business where I work. You are always professional and concerned about others. God Bless you in all you do. Happy Birthday! Carol | Tracy, I have only known you for year, but I must say it is a joy to work with you. You are such an inspiration to everyone and your positive attitude is so comforting to be around. If more people would be like you, this world would be a much better place. Thanks for keeping me focused on the right things and letting go of the negative ones. You amaze me at all that you do and the people you help. Your faith in God shines through you everyday!! Happy 50th Birthday! Rae

21: Tracy, Sometimes in life, you meet someone special who is more than just a friend. You are a very unique person with whom I've shared many memories over the years. I appreciate all the little things you do to make life more interesting for all your co-workers and friends. You give unselfishly of your time and talent to make everyone feel welcomed. You will always be a special friend, someone we can trust who is always there to support you. Thanks for all the great memories. Happy 50th Birthday. I'll leave you with this advice: I get up each morning and dust off my wits, Then pick up the paper and read the "o-bits." If my name is not there then I know I'm not dead. I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed (Anonymous). May God Bless you always, Mary

22: Tracy, Happy Birthday! I hope you are having an awesome day today and were surprised:) I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you and everything you have done for me! You have no idea what a blessing you have been to me and an answer to prayer!! You've taken me into your life and family and treated me like another daughter. I am not sure I'll be able to express to you how much I appreciate that and how much it means to me. I am so grateful to God for Him placing you and your family in my life. You are an amazing person and I know God will continue to repay you for all the seeds you have sown into my life -- in the natural and in so many other ways as well. I love you! - Carissa | Happy Birthday! Tracy, I am so thankful to have you as a mother-in-law, but more than that, as a friend! I look forward to all the wonderful times we will be having through the years together celebrating different things and awesome times like this one! I love you very much and thank you for all your advice and wisdom that you have shared with me so far... and I feel truly blessed to have you in my life!!! But, on this day, I pray that you would be over taken with blessings and joy and love from Him who loves you and rejoices with you on this day!!! Love, Jeremy Richardson :)

23: Tracy, I rejoice with you as you reach your 50th Birthday, as I am not far behind you! I heard on the radio just yesterday that "50 " is the "new 30". I hope "they" are right. I wanted to share with you words of wisdom and try to refrain from saying stuff like "old age and treachery will overcome skill and youth". (ha ha). So, I have researched some Biblical references instead. I found so many that reminded me of you and what you have meant to me as a friend that I decided to share them all- I couldn't pick out just one! Psalm 92:12-14 "The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing." Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work. If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up" *This one reminds me so much of all the support you have given me. I truly do not know what I would have done without your words of encouragement over the past several months. I thank God you were there for me! Proverbs 17:17 "A friend loves at all times" 1 John 4:7 "Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God." *You are one of the most loving individuals I have ever known. You even show love to your enemies- A very Christ-like ability. ReliableFriends are hard to find - Proverbs 20:6 "Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?" * I have! Sincere friends speak the truth in love, even when it hurts. Proverbs 27:5-6 "An open rebuke is better than hidden love! Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy." ( OH MY GOODNES! This one is my FAVORITE! The only think I have ever expected from any friend of mine is honestly-no matter how painful it might be. I so appreciate all those times I needed your honest advice and received it Thank you for being my friend. Thank you for listening to me. Thank you for being there for me when I needed you most. I am honored to call you "friend" and Thank God for leading us to one another. Happy 50th Birthday! May God grace you with happiness, good health, love, and at least 50 more years!. Your friend in Christ - Lisa

24: Happy 50th Birthday Tracy. I wanted to let you know that I have enjoyed working with you an getting to know you these last 2 years. You are a very special asset to our team and I appreciate everything you do. I also want to tell you how much I admire your dedication and commitment to your faith, your church, and the work you do in our community. I am sure you have touched the lives of so many women who desperately need your guidance. I especially applaud your fortitude as a single, working Mother. You have been a constant role model for me and have shown me that I can make it through my own struggles as a single Mother too. So, I write this message with love and thanks. For you have touched my life, you are like an angel sent from God. Sincerely, Pamela Klein | "By the time we hit 50, we have learned our hardest lessons. We have found out that only a few things are really important. We have learned to take life seriously, but never ourselves." -Marie Dressler May God bless you on your birthday - Martha | Ms. Tracy, We LOVE you! Landon, Lauren, & Laken | Dearest Tracy, I am so honored to have you as one of my closest friends. You have been such a good friend from the week I started at work. I have watched your family grow up and you have been there to see my get started. I know that I can always count on you and I value your friendship. As I prepared this book and typed in all the wonderful words of kindness and sincere thoughts expressed by people you have touched, I am overwhelmed with happiness and pride for you and your example. You are LOVED, ADORED, CHERISHED, APPRECIATED, RESPECTED, and we all want you to feel CELEBRATED! (Today and always). As consistent as your loyal friendship, is also your unfading beauty. You always look at least 10 years younger! Your beauty extends way past the surface, however, and that is what makes you most beautiful. You are an example of God's light in this world and I know one day, He will say "Well done, my good and faithful servant". You have used your own trials as a springboard for the Kingdom and a way to reach others. May you never grow weary in pursuing your predestined purpose. Thank you for your love, friendship, example, and loyalty. You are always concerned and interested in my family and life. I hope I can always be there for you to listen also. I wish you much JOY and SUNSHINE in the years to come! "The Lord bless you and keep you TRACY, The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you TRACY, the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace TRACY." Number 6:24-26 Blessings and Love -- Christina
