Even though I did not know Stacy that well, I did know that she was such an amazing mother, daughter, friend, and overall person. Her smile would light up a room every time she walked in it! I know that Heaven has gained another angel, and that she is looking down watching over her husband and children because she will forever be here with us. Sending my love and prayers to the Barney family through the hope that they will be strong during these tough times.
Drew K, January 18, 2021 I knew Stacy from the neighborhood where she grew up and from school. We met through Lisa Hoover and we all had so many great memories. Swimming in Lisa's pool, going to parties, driving around in her little car. Lol good times! Walking around the neighborhood and just hanging out at her parents house. It's with a heavy heart that I write this, I'm not really sure. what to say. Stacy was such a special person, she was so fun and energetic. She was funny and was always the person to make everyone feel comfortable. Although I havnt seen Stacy since highschool, when my sister called to inform me of what happened I cried so hard that you would have thought that we had been close all these years; and as much as I loved Stacy that wasn't the case. P.j.,Stacy and I talked on facebook this summer about getting together when she came home as well as other times. But as with many friends who we would love to see, it didn't happen. I wish now I would have made more of an effort. My heart is breaking for her family. For her parents who have now lost both their children and for her husband and children. I cannot imagine the unbearble grief you are all enduring. Please know, I think about you all every day and your in my prayers. I'm praying for the strength, healing, peace,. But most of all for God to comfort and hold you close. I'm so sorry this happened, I really loved Stacy, my sincerest condolences. Kimarie Martin Kimarie Martin, January 14, 2021 Our prayer are with you and the kids. May God give you the strength Faisal Mustafa, January 12, 2021 I knew Stacy through Camp Gladiator. She was an inspiration and she will be missed. Rae Curren, January 11, 2021 Stacy, you were an amazing mom, wife and friend. I’m thankful that I had the chance to know you. Your light will always shine. Every time I think of you it always starts with a smile. Then quickly moves into a giggle and laugh. You always being up for an adventure, the first to be silly and make us all laugh was contagious. You were always so put together, hair cute, make up or not, looked beautiful with a smile and always wearing one of the kids art projects as jewelry, proudly, was adorable. Every time I smell happy by Clinique I think of you. So many cherished memories that will never be forgotten. You will be missed and remembered. Heaven gained a special angel and we will have more shenanigans one day. Love to your family and everyone else that called you friend. Love you. Kristen Surbrook , January 11, 2021 I am finally able to write something. Stacy was a light in my world and her being a part of our #tribe meant so much to me. She was always willing to make me smile and was oh so amazing when I lost my brother in law this year. I don’t ever remember her not being part of our group at Cg, she was just there and fit perfectly with us! I loved her like a sister and was blessed to know such a special spirit. I will always remember her crazy dance moves and at Friendsgiving drinking and singing no matter who watched or recorded it! You will always be a smile in my life and I love you for that, all I can say is thank you for the times I had, I love you! Rebecca Tessier, January 11, 2021 From the Moms Club in Walled Lake/Commerce we are sending thoughts & prayers for you all. Stacy was a light in our club. As you have all stated, she always had a smile, joke or would just listen to you. She was a beautiful woman & Mom. She gave her all in everything she did. God bless you Stacy. Melinda Kern, January 11, 2021 Craig, Please know that our hearts are broken for you and your family. We love you and will continue to pray for you!

There are so many people here in MI that miss you and have been sharing stories about how much they care about you.

We were also very impressed by Rachel, she did an excellent job. Ken & Kim Stamper Ken & Kim Stamper, January 11, 2021 Rest in peace Stacy. Your smile, laughter and fond childhood memories will forever stay in my heart.
Tom and Donna Pascaris, January 10, 2021 Oh how I will miss your beautiful smile and our conversations. We had so much fun in middle school going to church together and hanging out. High School even more fun. Your brilliant smile and the fun you brought will never be forgotten. You were so loved and brought so much joy. We will be always thinking of you and your family. You are a part of who we are. Amy McCusker, January 10, 2021 Stacy, Although we have not been close for a number of years, you were always close to us in our hearts. I have so many memories from our adolescent years together that I hold dear. I'm so grateful we were able to spend time together a few years ago with a visit on your back deck up here in Michigan. I was lucky to have had you as a friend. I know heaven is a brighter place with you in it. I will always remember your laugh and your sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Chris and Lisa Canning, January 10, 2021 You were a shining light at 5am Camps. I loved your high-fives and constant encouragement. The world needs more of you. As heartbreaking as it is that you are gone, I know that you are up above smiling, pain-free, and being an amazing guardian angel for so many. To the entire family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I am praying for peace in your broken hearts. God Bless. Ashley Cruz , January 9, 2021 Stac...you were an amazing, wonderful lady and an incredibly devoted, loving mom! You always brightened any gathering with your fun loving personality. You will be greatly missed by all that we’re lucky enough to call you a friend. Much love and prayers for you Craig, kids and family. Tracie McDonnell, January 9, 2021 Our thoughts and prayers continue for your family through this very difficult time. From our kids in preschool, elementary and middle school, as well as birthday parties and neighborhood get togethers, it was always great to see you, chat awhile and get caught up. You were and will always be loved by many. Loraine Foster, January 9, 2021 Stacy - you were everything to me. My dearest friend, the older sister I never had, a mom-like mentor, my running buddy and workout partner, my camper, the one who willingly, without being asked - showed up to camp 30 min early each morning so I wouldn't be alone, my confidant - who knew everything there is to know about me and I knew everything about you, the one who carried me through some of my darkest days and trials, God placed you in my life and me in yours just when we both needed each other. I've never been closer to someone so naturally. You were the light I needed. You were always so silly, with no filters, and the most genuine person. You were an example to me of how God intended women to be motherly, empathic, loving, patient, kind, selfless, and servant-hearted, You will be forever missed and always in my heart and mind. I know you will be with me as my guardian angel until we meet again.
Demetri Blackman, January 8, 2021 Stacy will always hold a special place in my heart. I grew up next to her for over a decade and she was always known to welcome all the neighborhood kids into her home and always had a smile on her face. She is loved and will be missed.
Paige Conrad, January 8, 2021 My deepest condolences to Stacy and her family. May god rest her soul. James Jenkins , January 8, 2021 Stacy, words cannot describe how heartbroken I am that you are no longer with us, it doesn’t seem real. You were more than a best friend, you were family to me. I will forever cherish our early morning laughs, our dinner dates and the countless inside jokes we shared. Camp will never be the same without your warm greetings and hugs. You impacted my life more than you could ever imagine Stacy, from the moment we became friends, I knew this was going to be a friendship that would last a lifetime. I’m extremely blessed that we crossed paths, and became the great friends we were. I’m honored to have shared your last birthday with you, 21/50 will forever be significant to me because of you. I love you so much and rest easy my dear friend, you will be greatly missed. I know you’re watching over us in heaven. I’ll forever be your xandy pants. I love and miss you so much. Alex Romo , January 8, 2021 My memories of Stacy are being kind to everyone and always a smile on her face. You will be missed. ?? Tammy , January 8, 2021
