In Your Memory, Tracy

Depeche Mode fans are young (yes, that means you!). When we hear of one passing away, it’s often a tragic and unexpected loss. Last week, the devoted ranks lost one of our own. Tracy was only 40, and leaves behind her husband. I haven’t had contact with Tracy in years, but she was an avid fan with a good heart. Her husband requested that devotees play “Home” and “Peace” in her honor last Sunday, but I’m sure a play on any day would be much appreciated. My thoughts are with her friends and family during this difficult time.


Amanda is an enthusiastic, globe-trotting Mode fan who discovered the band in late 1998. Although she often feels like she got a late start in the Depeche Mode's career, she's survived nearly 20 years of the fandom, five new albums and multiple meetings with her love for the band intact (and stronger than ever). Amanda is a life-long creative, a classically trained graphic designer, working professionally as a User Experience Designer for one of the world's largest technology companies. When not at work or traveling for Depeche, she enjoys character illustration, comics, movies and Japanese Culture. And cats. Lots of Cats.
