Bracie and I were friends in High School.  She had a great personality, and was a lot of fun!  Bracie was a good person and  a wonderful friend.  We kept in touch for a few years following graduation, but then lost touch.  I was shocked and saddened to hear of her death.  Condolences to her family and friends.  Bracie is dearly missed!
