  1. So sorry to hear of Stacia’s passing. When she moved to San Antonio, back in the 3rd grade, my father was so impressed by her that he called all my friends Stacia even after I graduated college. He is now 85 and will also be sad to hear the news. Heartfelt prayers to your family.

  2. I remember walking to her house after school in the 3rd grade, and visiting with her mother. What a loss this is. She will alays hold a special place in my heart. Prayers and thoughts to her family.

  3. My condolences to your family. I went to school with Stacia at St Pius. We had several sleepovers at her house. I remember her mom too. Stacia was a very sweet person. May you find comfort in one another during this difficult time.

  5. Stacia grew up one street over from me. We walked to school together everyday and were very close friends. After high school, I lost touch with her, and have not had the pleasure of meeting Dave. Stacia and I reconnected and have been in touch over the last 10 years by phone, email, and occasional visits to San Antonio. Her excitement for life could not be contained! She will be terribly missed. My deepest sympathies for your family at this very sad time.

  6. My heartfelt sympathies to all of Stacia’s family. May your long life of love and laughter together bring your hearts peace and joy, now and forever. Lisa (Hinote) Frierson

  13. We just heard about Stacia’s passing today, and were extremely sorry to hear of the loss of this great lady and dedicated Air Force wife! Her vibrant personality livened up any room, and her eclectic wardrobe was always fun to see! Only Stacia could pull that off and look so great!

    David, Marcus and Abby, we send our most heartfelt condolences. Our fond memories from our assignment together in Germany include time spent with you all.

    May your memories of Stacia and the love of family comfort you in this great loss.

  14. I am so saddened to be just learning this news. Stacia and I became fast friends when she bought some of my artwork in Germany. She even graciously invited myself and my German husband to Dave’s pinning when she became a General. Stacia was a beautiful being with an even more beautiful soul, the world has lost a true one and only. Peace be with her in heaven and with all who mourn her.
