Stacy,

I hardly knew you while you were here. You were just a happy, smiling kid to me. The fact that most of the people who knew you remember your smile says a lot about you. Even though I barely knew you, you have changed my life.

I hardly knew your family while you were here. Since youíve been gone Iíve helped your dad run this site and Iíve seen what a wonderful family you have. Iíve never known any other people as caring and giving to others. Iím thankful that I know them now. Even though I barely knew you, you have changed my life.

I didnít know your friends while you were here. Their letters, poems, and remembrances keep coming after all this time. Through these I have started to know you better. You have a lot of great friends. It would be easy for them to forget you but they donít. Even though I barely knew you, you have changed my life.

And now at this special time of Christmas Iím thankful that Iíve gotten to know you, your family ,and your friends. All of the people that were so special to you have made my life better. Stacy, in the short time you were with us you touched many lives, and you continue to touch others. If you look down on me know youíll see me looking back, smiling, just like you always are.

Merry Christmas,

Brett Vegoe
