Meet Stacy at the prison in Denver. I worked in clinic with her and she was a fun person to be around and after she left the the prison in 2006 I lost contact with her until 2017 and a mutual friend Darrel Mikulas had Stacy and I over for dinner. I got to met Kaleb for the first time. I wish I would of talked with her more and kept in touch. I will miss her smile and laugh.

We met Stacy at the Lunch Box, she was one of our special customers that always had an conversation with, I remember when she she told us that they found something suspicious and had to get an Biopsy. We got so concerned for her, she kept us updated and kept her in our prayers and thoughts. She loved bringing her son in before karate around the corner.
She was so scared to leave her son of anything were to happen to her.
She tried to fight the cancer as much as she could.
I hope her Kaleb had some great memories that he will never forget.
We pray that God will give you all the peace needed right now.
Hope to run into Kaleb someday again

She was a mazing person.
I remember the day she asked me to go to prom with her. I was excited that she was older than me and she was so pretty and we always had fun. We did stupid things Hanging out laughing. I remember the stupid Day in high school when they had slave day she asked me to be your slave for the day because She just became Senior in high school. I was a friend i said yes without thinking. We were neighbours for solo every time I went to Colorado Springs I tried to hang out my friend my buddy my pal.
I am so glad you are my friend, I am sorry you are gone. You will be missed.

I am deeply saddened by the news of Stacy’s passing. I have only fond memories of her starting in elementary school. We spent a ton of time together through elementary & junior high school, always such a kind soul. RIP, old friend.

I have plenty of memories, a lot of the time when Kaleb would come in to Legends Of Aurora.
She would be probably be a touch exhausted maybe needed a break and would sit in the first Bay window, which would be where I would sit (there were two tables at the time). I would multitask playing trivia and looking after Kaleb while Stacy and Kaleb needed to eat or catch up on her SM or phone calls. To entertain a child with autism is a challenge, as I understand what she is going through; I put my mother through it too. She trusted me to see that Kaleb was comfortable.
I thank her for her friendship and sharing Kaleb. To the family, thank you for her presence...she will be definitely be missed by those she met. If it were not for social media, we all would not be aware. My condolences to you all and prayers are daily events.
Rest in peace, Stacy. We fight everyday and won't stop until. Thanks!

I never meant a person as lovey as you! Your heart was so big it welcomed everyone in it! I met her years ago while working as a registered nurse. We laughed together, and had so much fun just hanging out!
We shared her belief in God together! She loved her family so much.... Her sister was her best friend. I remember her telling me all the time about her beautiful mother!
I just want to remember your smile because I never met anyone that was a true genuine woman like you!
God Bless your family!

What can I say about Stacy. So many things but most important to me is how God placed her in my life. I would have never known her if I didn’t date her brother in high school. We instantly became friends like she did with everyone she met. We had lost touch a bit after I graduated but I will never forget when we reconnected. She introduced me to my now husband. She was the reason my life has been so amazing. Even through growing into adults we still stayed friends. We might have went years without talking but when we did it was like we never lost those years. She will always have such a special place in heart. She will be spoke of often when I tell the story of how I met Dallas. I will miss her so much!!
We love you Stacy D 💕💕
