A holiday angel ...

Last Wednesday, I received the news that a friend of mine had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm. Stacee was 41 and has left behind her husband, four young children, a large extended family and many close friends. Her passing brought together our community and put meaning behind the holiday spirit of celebrating the people who share our lives. It is still hard to imagine that she will not be with us any longer. Stacee was always extending herself to others, coordinating community events, laughing out loud at the funny day-to-day experiences that fill a life. She will be missed and remembered.


  1. Yvonne... I hardly know what to say except that I am so sorry for your loss... & for the unimaginable void Stacee's passing will leave in your life & the lives of her family members. I will be thinking of you & hoping that your wonderful memories of the times you shared with Stacee will help you get through this time of great sadness.

  2. Yvonne ~ please know that you along with Stacee's husband and children will be in my prayers. Take care ~ Lorna

  3. I am so very sorry for your loss. How sad for the children to grow up without their mother. I lost my mother unexpectedly when I was five. The best thing is to have people like you who can help them remember her, as they get older they will want to know. If I might make a suggestion, maybe you could write down your memories of her so that when they're older you can share them. Just a thought. Sending you love.

  4. Yvonne,

    So sorry for your loss. Losing a friend is hard enough, but so young and around the holidays makes it all the more tragic. Keeping you in my thoughts.
