Evelyn Braxton took to social media to share beautiful and heartfelt words about her daughter, Traci Braxton, who transitioned to her heavenly home on Saturday after battling esophageal cancer.

In a lengthy post on her Instagram page, Ms. Evelyn offered deeper insight on Traci’s battle with cancer, her determination to beat it, and how she “held on until she couldn’t hold on anymore.”

Read the full post:

My dear sweet wonderful, incredible daughter, we slept in the same bed before she became so terminally ill all night talking while sharing so many secrets .. she said with so much strength of faith, “mommy I’m going to beat this! My healing is right around the bend” I replied with so much hope “absolutely oh yes, you will be healed Baby girl without a doubt! ”

As days, weeks, and months Passed she held on to her determination that she could be an example for someone else that she could perhaps help them through this heinous disease !!

As I watched her every day her mind grew stronger & more determined. We prayed every day, we repeated Psalms 23 &Anointed our heads With oil. Traci maintained God’s Peace, she never complained she just knew she was going to get through this didn’t matter how it looked.

Life was hers and she was going to have it! I watch the weight drop off. I watched tears streaming down her face as she held onto her faith and her beliefs. She fought a good fight and held on until she could not hold on anymore. Only to realize that sometimes healing is not on this side of God‘s kingdom but it lies on the other side in the bosom of God.

Yes we pray for healing, of the body. Traci switched from life on this side to life on the other side. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

Thank you, Lord, for 50 years you have given me and my family and the world with Traci and allowing me to be her Mommy. It will always be an empty place in my heart that will never be fulfilled. Although she came through me but she comes from God.

Yes we will miss her because we love her. Lord, Thank you, you loan to us such a beautiful treasure in a vessel that will never be forgotten.. NO I won’t complain!

Look at God❤️???? Forever in my heart!

Traci Braxton was deeply loved and she will be sorely missed.
