  • Looking back I remember Stacy being a member of my class, the MGHS class of 1985. To my surprise my memory failed me, she was class of 1986. Stacy seemed to transcend all classes at the time, A friend to all, foe of none, “always in the know”. As if a ringleader of a circus, Stacy would organize, move, motivate, distract, involve, and accomplish. I recall a swiftness or quickness whenever Stacy was around, things were happening.

    With the news of Stacy’s death I am reminded that one by one the good people die and the world becomes a sadder less hospitable place. That’s just the way it is.

  • More sympathy is with you now
    Than words alone can tell…
    For those who share your friendship
    Share your recent loss as well.

    Sending love and hugs.

  • Prayers go out to the family of Stacy. She was a strong woman and always had that beautiful smile that warmed your heart. Your children are our friends and wonderful adults. Rest now my friend, you are free.

  • My prayers go out to the family. She was a lovely lady and had such a beautiful heart. A great mom who loved her children deeply. I am so sorry for your loss. She will always be remembered by many for her heart and kindness. You all our in our prayers.
