Stacey is my wonderful mommy! When she was around, it really felt like she was god, always waching over me. She understude everything about me, and how I felt, even though she wasn't me! She was just so incredible, I can't even explain it in words!
Eva Solnick her 12 year old daughter
Eva, I am very sorry about your Mom.
Stacey was my teacher, my employer, my cheerleader, my sounding board and confidant, my inspiration and my friend. She looked out for me and believed in me when no one else did. It was solely because of her that I went into teaching young children.
Her devotion to Aaron, Eva and Noah was profoundly moving.
Her voice haunts me even today when I play with the toddlers in my classroom and I hear my own voice hit a pattern of inflection I have heard nowhere else and realize that, even though I'm not family, a part of her will follow me for the rest of my life. Stacey was a beautiful person and I miss her.
Hélas what saddening news I have come upon of late - 12 july 2014
by chance? I don't think Stace would have said it was any more than me.
Stacey was a great love of my life in our early twenties.
Glad to she became a mom, a wife, and well, a great community member.
Could she have been anything else?
Having met her at Stanford in 1977-78 as an undergrad (hope my dates are right), we shared a lot together. I knew briefly her parents, we lived more or less together but she was finishing her studies. Then things diverged and she went off to L.A. and me to europe.
She taught me to appreciate life through dance. She took me to dance concerts of the day, and I discovered much that I would never have know had she not been in my life.
We shared music, literature and humanitarian and spiritual interests ... as well as our love...
Later, drifting apart after a 4 year relationship, I had to let her go to go on. She started new things and built a life.
But I never forgot her -- who could !!! ?
I once tuned in to MTV on the TV and there she was in a David Bowie clip -- zooming across the staged scene. I was so happy for her, so amazed she had managed that.
With the internet today we can get so amazed and have our heart broken.
This news is a case of the latter and I shed many tears even learning of her passing 8 years after the fact has created a bit of a hole in me.
Hélas, we all go on and I hope to see here again someday somewhere else over the rainbow ;)
Long live Stacey
wherever you are
Hope to those who have had the chance to spend years with you
You gave them one of life's great gifts
Take little sister wherever you are !!!
love reign or' you
