My heart is broken not only for myself, but more importantly all of Stacey’s family and loved ones. I’m in shock, denial and shattered all at the same time. Stacey is 1 of my best sister friends and was 1 of my bridesmaids on October 31st, 2017. Her family and other friends are in my thoughts and prayers. I love and miss Stacey so, so much.

As I mourn my daughter Stacey, I pray that God gives us peace during these trying moments and give the family strength to come to terms with demise.

To Stacey’s dad, mum and sisters, just like a farmer picks the best fruit from the garden, God picks the best.

To Daggy and my grandson Tafarai, you loved Stacey so much, but God loved her more. Be strong and have faith in God and He will guide you throughout your life.

Debbie my heart goes out to you all I never imagined we would be laying to rest one of our children . It is the hardest thing I think a mother has to do , But try to stay strong , know that I’m praying for you, and I know it’s hard right now but God has a plan and we may not understand it but we will , she’s resting in his bosom now and though our hearts long for her he’s holding on to her . She’ll be waiting to see us on the other side I love you all .

I first met Stacey at Bronson Hospital emergency room in August 2018. We shared pizza that I had ordered. She was always so funny, laughing, and loving life! But she touched my heart when she made sure to wish me Merry Christmas before I left work on Christmas Eve. I’ve had pneumonia for 2 weeks and was finally able to come back to work this past Monday, when I learned about my friend Stacey. I am so sorry that this has happened to your family. I have not stopped thinking about her all week. I pray that she is in the hands of the Lord in eternal peace and I hope He sends peace and comfort to you all.
