We want to tell Kay and all the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren how sorry we are to hear about the passing of Stacey. We spent a many of Saturdays and Fridays with Stacey. Our boys played for Stacey in many of the sports he coached. He was such a kind man and showed a lot of patience with these young boys. He will be missed by you all and many of the young men he coached. God be with you today and the days to come.
