We first met Tracy about ten years ago and he's felt like part of our family ever since (although he didn't make it official until a little over eight years ago when he married our daughter, Amy).
So here's Tracy, pictorially, through the years.
There are lots of interesting things about Tracy starting with his interests. First of all, you couldn't help but notice that in his first two pictures he's holding dogs. What those pictures don't show is that his love for holding dogs has never waned.
He's a real family guy at heart and embraced his role as step dad to Amy's kid from the get go.
He's also helpful.
But most of all he loves to laugh. You would be hard pressed to find somebody who enjoys a good time more than Tracy.
So Tracy, here's wishing you a very happy birthday. We're proud and
happy to have you in our family and we love you like a son-in-law.
Actually that last paragraph was in deference to Tracy's love for a good
laugh. Really, Tracy we love you like a son and hope your birthday is
