26 Condolences for Traci A. Kilcullen

  • My condolences to you and your Family. Sorry for your loss!🙏🙏

  • Chris,

    I’m very sorry to hear of your loss.

    Your friend,


  • The words “the world is a little less joyful without her grace” are appropriate, but an understatement. Traci had a tenacity that was blended with tact better than any other person. We butted heads- hey she was married to my brother- but it was never a big deal and it was laughed off. Traci was a true fighter. She is gone, but will never be forgotten. Stay strong Chris!

  • Chris,
    We are deeply sorry to hear about your loss. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    My sincere condolences to you and your family,

  • Dear Chris,

    Though I’ve never met you, I’ve heard so much about you. I knew Traci through Millersville. We had at least one class together that I recall, and we shared a mutual friend in Marni. When I remember Traci, I think of her vivaciousness. She was kind; smart; said exactly what was on her mind; and seemed to roll out of bed well-dressed and perfectly made up, looking fierce and fabulous without even trying. As a farm girl, I was a little in awe of this city girl and her sharp sensibilities.

    Nothing about this is fair. I can’t begin to express how truly sorry I am for your loss. Know I will be holding space in my heart for you, your family, and your friends as you gather to honor Traci’s memory this weekend.

    Sending you comfort and strength,

    Your friend,

  • Chris and family, Alice and I send our condolences. You both will be in our thoughts and prayers.
