We were shocked and saddened to learn of Stacey's passing. Chris was Roarke's first buddy at Lone Rock School. They spent a lot of time at Chris' house playing hard and having fun. Stacey always has such a beautiful smile and ability to connect. Our thoughts are with you. With love from the Foley/Baldwin Family.
