That phone call on February 8th will change my life forever. So many thoughts went through my mind when I found out you were gone. Why!! What did we do that was so bad that you were taken from us. That is one question that I know cannot be answered easily. I am thankful to have you in my life for those fifteen years. I know its a short time but I know you lived your life to the fullest. I do feel better knowing you were loved not only by us, but by all your friends too. The support they have been giving us is so unbelievable. I am thankful to be a part of your family.
Its very hard going on without you, but I do have all my memories of you to help me. The Easter bonnets you wore with your curly hair bouncing out. Babysitting you, Michelle, and Tim. We played kickball and basketball and went for walks down by the lake. Rolling the pool balls arounds on Grandpa's pool table, hoping nobody gets their fingers pinched. Two years ago I had you, Michelle, Jessica, Nicole, and Vanessa staying over night at my house. We went out to eat, we went to the Waconia movie theatre. You girls all sat in the front seats of the theatre and I sat in the back. I felt like I was your "mom." After the movie, we went back to my house and we started a campfire. We sat around and told stories to each other for hours. That was one of the best times I had with you girls.
Stacy, you have made such an impact in so many lives. Not just your family and friends, but your school and the communities around you. There were so many people at your wake and funeral. I felt honored to be a part of your life.
I wish I would have spent more time with you. The times we did spend together, I will never forget. You are very special to all of us. I'm gonna miss you and I'll never ever forget you.
Your Aunt Marcy V.
