Rickie Traeger: Just Saying Thank You For The Support

  • Rickie 




After my mom passed away recently, I have not been in a blogging mood.
Sorry.

I know many of you follow my website, and like my posts.  I do appreciate it!

I thank you for letting me have my space and letting me grieve, during this tragic time.

Much appreciated.   So, now it is time to step back up on the plate and get back in the swing of things!

So I guess this will be my first official post being back 🙂
I want to take a second and just thank everyone for the support and love you have given me and my family during this horrific time.  Words can not describe how I feel.  I lost both my dad and mom. Words can’t describe how it feels to lose your parents.  I hope and I pray that my dad and mom are together and having a good time together in heaven.  I know we all pass away at some point in our lifetime.

But with my mom it doesnt feel real.   She goes in to the ER on January 29th for a broken arm. Found out she had cancer on that day and 2 weeks later, she is in heaven due to cancer. 🙁

I have much more to say, but I just am not in the mood right now.

Heads up, I do plan on getting back in the swing of things and blogging more.

And again, thank you for letting me have the time away to grieve.

And thank you to everyone who has prayed and showed their positive support during these difficult times.








Rickie Traeger: My Mom Passed Away From Cancer ;(

  • Rickie 




 

I write this blog with a heavy heart.

I lost my mom to cancer on Wednesday February 17th 2021 at 10:52 pm.

She went to the ER on January 29th for a broken arm, and found out she had cancer.

And a short time later she passed away from cancer.

F**k Cancer!!!

I am beyond heartbroken.   I thought it was rough with my dad when he passed away in 2014.  The death of my mom was waaaaaaaaaaaay rougher! I always thought my mom was going to live forever.

She was my rock, she was my superhero, she was a 2nd mom to many, she was my mom.

And for God to take her away from me, words can not describe how I feel.

I am thankful she was able to say her goodbyes to many and she was surrounded by love as she passed.

I ask that you keep my family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

I hope any pray that my mom was able to see the other side, like I did ~ http://rickietraeger.com/my-near-death-experience-nde/

I can’t explain what happened to me. But I do know it happened. And I hope my mom had a similar experience.

Rickie Traeger: Do Landowners Have To Disclose To New Homeowners if Someone Passed Away On Their Land?

  • Rickie 




I want to first wish my grandma a Happy 84th Birthday.  Happy Birthday Grandma!

I know that some stuff I post, some do not agree with my opinions. That is fine, because at times I do not agree with other peoples as well. That is life…   However, if you disagree with my opinions and posts, feel free to contact me. I am always happy to learn new things and have an open mind about things. Yes, I may have formed my own opinion on things, but that doesn’t mean that I am not open to hearing others opinions as well.

So you are probably asking yourself, why did I mention that. Well what I am about to write below, is very controversial with some people. Especially to those who do not have an open mind…  Ghosts!

Yup, you would think living in 2020 a lot of people would have open minds. But in reality, many have their own opinions and don’t have an open mind or want to hear other peoples opinions. Sad but true.

So here it goes, short and simple.

I have been doing Rockford Scanner for well over a decade now.  I have worked numerous scenes.  Sadly, some of those have been fatal scenes. I do not like working those types of scenes at all.  Very sad scenes.  I can recall almost every fatal scene I have worked over the years.  And as I go about doing my daily life, I pass by the locations of some scenes I have worked over the years.  And I can’t help but think of the scene, as I pass by the locations.  I see locations that have developed over the years, with new houses and other buildings that were built on the same land that a person passed away on. But that brings me to the main part of this post.

When you buy a house, they are supposed to tell the potential new owners if someone has passed away in the home.  I think that is a good thing. But come to find out many realtors do not do that. They said they don’t want to lose a potential buyer. It is crazy, but that is besides the point.  My point of this post is…

Some scenes I have worked that were fatal, were not inside residences at all.   Over the years the land develops and homes are built on the land that someone has passed away on.  New houses that are being built on land, on the very spot the person has passed away at.

Do the land owners, or the people selling the homes have to tell these new home owners that a person passed away on that land, the very spot their house sits on?   Or do they not have to tell the new home owners?

Because what if a new home owner bought a house and begin to experience paranormal activity.  And they know the house is new, so they can not research the house to see if anyone passed away in it, to explain the possible paranormal activity that is going on.  So what options do these new homeowners have, when they want to research and try to see what is causing the paranormal activity?  Realtors are “supposed” to tell the new homeowners.  But what if it is a new house, are they supposed to tell the new homeowners someone passed away on the land?

I like to hear everyones opinion on this topic.   I know some do not agree with the paranormal topic. And I respect that. But I ask that you have an open mind and listen to others opinions and questions on the topic.








Rickie Traeger: We All Take Life For Granted…




First and foremost, my condolences to the family and friends of the victims in the double fatal accident a bit ago in Rockford. 

Please keep the family and friends and 1st responders in your thoughts and prayers.

There was a rollover accident in the 2100 block of 16th st a little bit ago.

2 people passed away and a 3rd victim was transported to a local ER.

I always hate working fatal scenes.   I can tell you every fatal scene I have ever worked over the years.

They are always heartbreaking to work.

We all go about our lives every day and do not realize or grasp the concept of how precious life really is, until it is too late.

Each and every time I work a fatal scene, it is sad. But it also reminds me of how lucky we are to be alive and to have those we love around us.

Also at the same time, I realize that some family is about to have the worst day in their life 🙁

I know doing what I do (Journalist) I have worked many fatals over the years.

And I can tell you I always dread working fatal scenes.  By far the most heartbreaking scenes to work.

This scene was a double fatal, possible triple. 2 Confirmed fatals.

Words cannot describe working a fatal scene.  My heart goes out to all those that are involved.

It is a grim reminder that we all take life for granted. The most cherished thing, and we don’t realize just how quick it can be gone.

Please take a second and hug those that you love, and tell them you love them.

And to keep all those involved in this horrific scene, in your thoughts and prayers

Rickie Traeger: Happy Walking Dead Day




Happy Walking Dead Day! 

 

Holy cow, what an episode of Walking Dead!

I kinda wonder how Carol and Daryl’s relationship is going to be now???

Liddy goes back to the Whispers.  Daryl is going to be super mad…

The ending of tonights episode kinda explained his flashbacks.  And explains some…

Spoiler Alert: Man that sucks he died!!!

So now we know the whispers have a spy in a high position in their community now.

So I am asking myself, how is this going to play out? As you know the Walking Dead writers kill people off all the time and do not stick to the comics.

One of the cool things I like about the show, but at the same time. WTF killing off main characters, grrrrrrrrrrr

I am goingto watch the replay in a few minutes, I love this show 😛
