Great times with memories forever cherished.
Dear Stacy, I never got the chance to tell you just how much our friendship meant to me. You were more like a sister to me than a friend. I have missed you so much the past few years! I cherish all of the great times we had together. I love you and you will always be one of my dearest friends. R.I.P. Stacy...xOxO
Stacy and I were best friends along time ago. The things I remember most about Stacy was her kindness, her love of her children and animals. I honestly never saw Stacy during her difficult times, so the Stacy I loved lives on in my mind. May she RIP away from the demons that chased her daily. I love you Stacy Thatcher I will always remember “our happy times.”
