Collectively, the family wore various shades of green.

“You never think that it’s going to happen to you and your family,” Toni said to Tamron Hall during the March 29 interview. “You have to remind yourself to enjoy the moments, be happy.”

Traci had a year-long fight with Esophageal cancer and passed on March 12, just weeks shy of her 51st birthday.

Toni, 54, expressed her gratitude for the family’s camaraderie when her sister was in the hospital. She said they were there to see her take her last breath.

She also posted a moving Instagram photo, wearing green and a hummingbird locket.

“Hummingbirds were Traci's favorite. We made these beautiful lockets enclosed with her ashes to honor our promise that we would take her everywhere we go.”
