James & Tracey & family, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you go thru this dark time. I can't even begin to know how much you are hurting. This is awful. Just wanted you to know that we love you guys and will be praying for you in the days ahead. This will take a long, long time to come back from.

You will be missed my friend! 20 plus years of friendship. So many good memories. Cruising around in that old red Beretta back in the day. Concerts at Lakewood. Laser light shows at the fox. Or how about all the 5 AM workouts and power lifting competitions. The day you and Ragan were married. And that is just the short list. There are to many to list.

My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. You were a great friend . So I know they have suffered a tremendous loss.

Dear James and Tracy, and all the Family and Ragan, and children, we thank God for his promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us. My prayer for each of you today is that even in the mist of feeling so alone, God would reveal Himself to each of you. I pray He would fill your hearts with comfort and your mind with peace so you can rest in Him.
I Pray for the protection of each of you

Michael will be greatly missed by our family and all who knew him. These past two years I got to know him and his wonderful family ,who have become part of my family . I will always remember his loving demeanor towards his children and the time he spent with ours. My heart aches with your passing. I will do everything I can to help Ragan and the children cope with their great loss. I'm glad for the times we spent together and getting to know the entire Rainey family !!
