Angie, I just wanted to say I’m so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter, I pray that God gives you strength and comfort to get through each and every day. Much love to you and your family.
May god bless you. Lacy is now with the lord.
I will always remember with great fondness Lacy’s love of rock music. She always brought a ray of light when she was able to come into GOAL, and left beautiful artwork for us to enjoy.
Angie and Judy, my heartfelt thoughts are with you and your family.
we r very sorry for your loss in your child may she rest in peace we miss u love u hugs
Lacy was a wonder young lady who I truly enjoyed getting to work with. Her smile and her laugh were infectious. I can remember so many times that even through her pain and sadness, she was able to warm my heart and raise my spirits. I have missed seeing her face and her sweet smile. But I know she does not hurt anymore, it is only those she left behind who feel the hurt. This young lady has received her perfect body and is resting with her heavenly father. So I will smile for her release of pain and remember her smile in times I need a pick-me-up. Prayers of comfort to all.
May her soul find peace
May her mind find rest
May her memory last
forever with us all.
I pray God will wrap his loving arms around you and give you comfort during this most difficult time.
Life was hard for Lacy and for those that loved her. God places great value in suffering and some people are called to bear much more than others. Lacy fulfilled God’s will with incredible strength and patience. Angie has also suffered as Mary did with Jesus…watching her child suffer was not easy. It will all make sense someday, but now we see as through a darkened glass. God bless you in your continued suffering, missing her so much. Find comfort in knowing she will have an eternal life full of better things than she missed here. Love you all.
Lacy was a very important student to GOAL Digital Academy! She and family are in our hearts!! She will be greatly missed. The staff looked forward to sending Lacy care packages, cards and emails.
I am sure Lacy is a beautiful Angel with the best smile or all angels.
I am devestated to think about how you and your family must feel. I’m sorry we lost contact when you decided to home school Lacy. I would hear randomly how sick Lacy had been in the past few years and always meant to check in. I’m truly sorry for your loss of not only your daughter, but your best friend and your angel on earth. God bless you and your family may all of you find comfort in your struggles to come. .. I am sorry…
Lacy, we loved you from day 1, my heart is shattered, rest in peace baby girl, I know you longed to see boom paw and daddy, you were nothing but an angel here, praying for mommy and nana, till that sweet morning, love you baby girl
