I was at Texas A&M with Stacia and her husband David, he was one of my upperclassmen in my unit E-1 in the Corps of Cadets. What Stacia is not telling us (because that the person she is) is that she was not just a Military Air Force wife, but was the “Rock and Foundation” of her husband. David was a Major General in the U.S. Air Force, he did not reach that rank by himself.  Sometimes you just need to stand up and applause a good performance.  Gone too soon you will be missed.

I am shocked & saddened to hear about Stacia. We have been friends since high school & have stayed in touch through the years. At Christmas she was thrilled to be  a grandmother. Steve, you are correct about Stacia--she supported Dave's career & raised 2 wonderful children. I will miss you my friend!

Although I haven't seen Stacia in years, I have such wonderful memories of her. My senior year [at Mac] Stacia & I hung out & were Lassie's together. Omg, she was so much fun! Her quick wit, hilarious sense of humor had me laughing all the way to & from the games. I loved her & felt very lucky to be her friend. Very lucky. I have never forgotten Stacia nor the times we spent together. A gracious & kind person who has gone too soon. To this very day she is often in my thoughts.

My deepest, sincerest condolences to Stacia's family and all who knew/loved her. She was one of a kind. The best kind.
