    I just heard this devastating news this afternoon and I am still in denial. I have known Stacey from the time she was pregnant with Zachary. I loved visiting with her for my new hairdo. We would laugh and talk about life, family and her boys. She loved those boys very much and was very proud .
    Rest In Peace, my friend, and know I enjoyed our times together.
    We have all lost a good one but the Heaven’s have gained an angel. I will miss you dearly.

    Stacey started doing my hair at Fantastic Sam’s some 20+ years ago. I have enjoyed being her friend as she had major milestones in her life. I have followed her from place to place because she was my friend and I loved her dearly. I can’t say enough good things about Stacey. She loved being a mother and I pray for Zachary & Jaxson. Stacey, my friend, you will be greatly missed by all that knew you.

    Stacey started doing my hair 23+ years ago at Fantastic Sam’s. I have followed her since that time not just because she was my hairdresser (which she was awesome) but because she was my friend. I love her dearly. I pray for peace and comfort for Zachary & Jaxson. Stacey you will be greatly missed.

    I got to know Stacey through her friendship with my daughter Cheree. She was always a joy to be around, loving, accepting, encouraging, and a strong loyal friend to my daughter. She was a devoted Mom. It was an honor to have known her and I look forward to seeing her again one day in heaven.

    I went to high school and church with Stacey growing up in White House and at Walnut Grove UMC. I was sad to hear of her passing. Prayers for Ms. Debbie, Scott, and Mr. Henry.

    I grew up with Stacy as her and my brother Joe were best of friends throughout school. My wife and I moved to Louisiana in 2014 and one of the topics we discussed on the way there was who was going to cut my hair now because the drive was to far to go see Stacy. I was just in the shop On Sat the 11th and as always it was conversational as usual ‘ how’s the boys’ both hers and mine. She was always smiling no matter what difficulties were thrown her way and she was always optimistic and positive about everything. Will miss you!

    I have known Stacey before she was born. I used to sit her on my desk and feed her m&ms and orange cola . She was one of the sweetest people you could meet. God Bless her boys and family. Love Buddy and Carolyn

    I came to know Stacey when I moved to Goodlettsville and needed a hair dresser. I called High Maintenance Salon and they asked me to describe my hair. Without hesitation, they responded, “You need Stacey.” Stacey was just that, just what I needed. She told me everything I needed to know about my new town. She also did my mom’s hair, usually every week. Stacey is the hardest working hair dresser I have ever met! Who works with a broken back?!?! Stacey! Me and my mother are going to miss our friend dearly. Praying that God grant the family peace and strength in the weeks ahead.
