  10. I am praying for your family at this very heart breaking time. I know that God is with you and your family. I lived a couple of blocks from Stacey and Tammy growing up in New Rockford. I remember when we were in middle school, and my neighbor had 3 very cute grandsons visiting. We, of course, were all boy crazy at the time, and we hung out that summer trying to meet these young boys that were probably in middle school, too. It was a great summer that I will never forget. I know that over the years I have lost touch with the Stacey and Tammy; however, after looking at the video I can tell that you both have had many great times with your family and friends. Family and friends is what life is about. Thinking of all of you.
