Sadly, it was too soon . . . much too soon

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, December 1, 2010, our dear friend and Lyrical Pens partner, Tracy Ann Hurley, passed away at the age of 53. There was no lengthy forewarning; the discovery of her illness was unexpected; and her death devastatingly sudden.

A lifetime learner and lover of literature, reading, and writing, Tracy was also an inspired and gifted teacher. Her talents for writing and editing led her to co-found the Mobile Writers Guild and to the publication of short stories. Tracy will be especially remembered for her kind and loving heart that she shared with all she met.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society at or to a school or public library of choice.


  1. Tracy and I were not close but she raised one of the most amazing women I know - her daughter Danielle. May she forever rest in peace.

  2. Thank you, Mel. I miss her so very much, but it is comforting to know how many people she touched and inspired. Mahala
