Stacy has been a good friend for over forty years. Although I was living in Colorado and now Minnesota for most of that time, I frequently came back to visit my home town. And those trips wouldn't be complete without stopping by Stacy's. With my parents, aunts and uncles now gone, I haven't been back for many years. But visiting Stacy and Randy again had been an intention that regretfully I now learn had been put off for too long. Marsha and I are sad and will miss him.

I always remember him helping my grandpa and my mom with Superbly Built Homes. He would alway tease me about stealing my ear. He was a good man and a hard worker. You all are in my thoughts during this difficult time. He will be missed.

Susan, Steve and Randy, please accept our condolences on Stacy's passing. He was such a funny little kid that had such a great imagination. I still have very fond memories of all of us growing up on Ashworth Road.
