I didn't really start getting to know Stacey until about 10 years after we graduated from high school.  Her twin brother, Mike, and I had stayed close friends and I got to know Stacey, Howard and the kids  - always a warm and welcoming group to be around.  One time I was surprised to see Stacey, Howard and Marissa on a flight to Dallas - which we shared together in those Southwest airlines seats in the front that are across from each other.  

Stacey, I know how much you are missed by your family and friends.  You were a wonderful mother, daughter, sister and friend.   It was a great pleasure to be able to spend time with you in those years after SMS. - Lisa Russ
