Traci’s Husband Kevin Surratt tells TMZ … “We have come to a time where we must inform the public that after a year of privately undergoing a series of treatment for Esophageal cancer our beloved Traci Braxton has gone on to glory.”
We’re told Traci’s sisters, mom and friends were by her side when she passed.
Toni Braxton’s heartfelt message to her sister can be read and viewed below:
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.

We ask that you respect our privacy as we plan to send her home with love, celebrating her life.
We are family forever.
