Following her death, Evelyn Braxton writes a touching message to her daughter Traci Braxton
Traci Braxton died at the age of 50 following a quiet battle with esophageal cancer over the weekend, according to reports.
Traci’s mother Evelyn Braxton rushed to Instagram on Monday night to honor her daughter as many people began to send condolences and share their memories of the adored Braxton sibling.
“My beautiful sweet great, incredible daughter, we slept in the same bed all night talking while sharing so many secrets before she became so critically ill… she exclaimed with such strength of faith,’mommy I’m going to beat this!'” Evelyn said in a lengthy message.
‘My recovery is just around the corner.’ “I replied with such hope, ‘absolutely oh yeah, you will be healed Baby girl without a doubt!” Evelyn continued. “As the days, weeks, and months passed, she clung to her conviction that she may be an example for someone else, that she would be able to help them through this awful disease!!” she continued.
“As I saw her every day, her mind got stronger & more determined,” Evelyn added. Every day, we prayed, recited Psalms 23, and anointed our heads with oil. Traci kept God’s Peace; she never grumbled because she knew she’d make it through, no matter how difficult it seemed.
Life was hers to have, and she was going to take use of it! I observe the weight loss. Tears streamed down her face as she clung to her faith and her convictions. She fought valiantly and held on until she was unable to do so any longer. Only to know that healing can sometimes be found on the other side of God’s realm, in the bosom of God.”
“Yes, we hope for physical healing,” she continued. Traci transitioned from one side of the world to the other. It is possible to be present with the Lord while being absent from the body.
Thank you, Lord, for blessing me, my family, and the world with Traci and enabling me to be her mother for the past 50 years. There will always be a void in my heart that will never be filled. Despite the fact that she came through me, she is a gift from God.
Yes, we shall miss her since she is someone we adore. Thank you, Lord, for lending us such a lovely treasure in a vessel that will never be forgotten. NO, I’m not going to complain!
Forever in my heart, look at God!”
Traci is survived by her parents, husband, four sisters and a brother, a son, and a grandchild.
