  3. What a great big sister I had growing up! Staci always looked out for our well being and made sure she protected and loved us 3 younger brothers. She was a big sister I always looked up to. Staci was always so full of life and love, and cared for everyone she knew. I will miss her so very much.
    I am comforted by the promise from Jehovah God found in his Word at John 5:28…”Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” I look forward to the day when we will be able to see our dear Staci again.
