In Memory of Tracy Williamson

I just needed to do a post in honor of Tracy Partridge Williamson. I didn't know Tracy very well. Tracy and I went to highscool together and were in the same graduating class. Jason and I are friends with her older brother, Donald. In fact, every girl at West Jordan High had a crush on Donald! I've been so sad to hear about her tragic death. Her boyfriend murdered her, her beautiful 10 yr old daugther, her boyfriends 1 yr old daughter and then killed himself. Their bodies were found 10 days later. Evidently her boyfriend was very abusive and obviously crazy to kill innocent children. Tracy also has a 7 year old daugther that was at her Grandparents the night of the shootings. I've been sick to my stomach ever since I heard about it and thought I should let all you WJ people know. Tracy didn't have an easy life. She was always quiet and shy and was obviously in a bad situation that I don't think she thought she could get out of. It's a scary world out there. I want the Partridge family to know that my prayers are with them and I'm so sorry for their loss. Tracy was a sweetheart and didn't deserve to die so soon in such a horrible a way!

I just read about it this morning... and it's such a sad story. Especially that the family knew he was going to do something to her and tried protecting her. The pictures of the children is what breaks my heart!

This breaks my heart. I don't see her picture in the yearbook. I want to read more on this story (even though it makes me feel sick that there are such horrible people like her boyfriend out there).

I haven't even heard about this! How horrible! So sorry for her family, and especially for her 7yr old daughter, who now has to live life by herself, and deal with this horrible tragedy.

It is a scary world.
