  • I’ve only known Abigail for a little less than a year but we have talked and connected like we’ve known each other for a decade. Such a tragic and sudden loss. Abigail was very close with my sister Zoey and this will impact her and I forever. I’ve only spoken to Staci a few times over the phone when I called Abigail all the time. It was such a tragic day the morning we heard about the loss. We will miss you both dearly. Our love goes out to the family, especially Jordan and Bree. We are here for you <3

  • Staci was such a kind and genuine person. She really cared for the people around her. They will both be missed

  • Ms. Staci’s house was the one in the neighborhood I would ride my bike to as a girl, because I always knew I would be welcome there. I will always remember her and Abigail for their big smiles and big personalities. Ms. Staci was a mother figure to me and I will forever be grateful for the impact she has had on my life. After my own mother passed away, Ms Staci went out of her way to reach out to me, and I deeply regret not accepting her acts of kindness. I did not know they had moved back to the East coast, but it comforts me to know that they were living close to family- as I greatly remember her stories of growing up in Delaware. My heart goes out to Jordan, Kirsten and Breanna.
