On November 22nd heaven received another angel. She passed away in her home of natural causes. Growing up in a small town, it is easy to know everyone. But to have the impact that Stacey had on all of us was one of a kind. She gave the best hugs and had the biggest heart. She was genuine and always made you feel welcomed in her presence. I remember hearing all the kids call her mama Stace, when they would come over to hang out with Nea or one of the nephews. She loved that and the kids so much. Stacey also loved music, to play that music loudly, watching movies, Christmas lights, and crunchy ice. For those of you who didn’t know Stacey you would probably recognize her by her fast truck and big hair. We will forever miss her laugh and her warm embrace. "Holding you, we held everything" -Garth

- Sherry SwinkI would occasionally run into Stacy at the store and she was always so sweet to say hi and visit. I knew her when she was pretty small, and was raised just a block or so from our home. Sincere condolences to the Neal and Downard families.
