I love my mother forever and this hurts so much but I’m at peace knowing she’s isn’t in pain anymore. I love you ma I’m going to miss you.”

Toni Braxton also addressed Traci’s death on the social media platform. She wrote, “It is with the utmost regret that we inform you of the passing of our sister, Traci. Needless to say, she was a bright light, a wonderful daughter, an amazing sister, a loving mother, wife, grandmother and a respected performer. We will miss her dearly.”

She added, “Traci passed this morning as the snow was falling, our angel is now a snowflake.”

We send out condolences to all of Traci’s loved ones and the entire Braxton family.


  1. I remember seeing people on IG saying how thin she was and I thought it was distasteful. It’s like people learned nothing from Chadwick. This is so sad.

  2. Prayers and condolences go out to her husband son daughter in law and grands. And to the Braxton family. Rest well Traci. You were truly my favorite Braxton

  3. Traci was my fave Braxton sister. She managed to smile thru it all but she was screaming on the inside. She felt like the outsider or her family made her feel that way because she had gotten pregnant. She lived with that stigma for years.
    She held her head up despite of though.
    MUCH LOVE QUEEN ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️?.

  4. I pray that Traci is with her loved ones on the other side, having made it over wrapped in the arms of God. Love you Traci. Peace forever.

  5. I’m so sorry to hear about Traci passing. However, the Bible gives a hope for the dead at John 5:28,29. May the “God of comfort” comfort her family and friends during this great loss. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. My condolences to their family. ???♥️

  6. Condolences to the Family. Tracy will be missed, and we know she was loved. I didn’t know her personally but I will miss her!?? Rest in Paradise.

  7. I am so sorry for this loss. I enjoyed her and the family on Braxton Family Values. May the Lord help you all get through this most difficult time

  8. Despite not really being invested in the World of the Braxtons, seeing this really hurt. And what made it sting was the lack of sensitivity of headlines regarding Traci’s passing. Thank you so much for your Sensitivity Urban Belle writers, and most importantly, Rest in Peace Traci❤️.

  9. My condolences to the family…you picked the perfect scripture.The dead has a chance for resurrection that really helps me when i lose a loved one.

  10. I am 50 years old and in my entire lifetime up until now, I have only truly cried for 3 celebrities , Diana , Michael Jackson & Traci Braxton.

    I cried for Traci becuase she was relatable, real, and a darling soul.

    Walk easy my sister, you are truly missed.

  11. No disrespect for the others sisters but she still had a relationship with both her parents which children as adults who divorce may not bring our siblings to the table to understand grown folks talk as she did wanted to do on the show..understand why she accepted your fathers wife .. that is grown folks stuff
    She accepted your fathers new family and wished your her mom may have moved on past her marriage. Hard as moms.
    Tracy may she rest in peace.
