In Loving Memory of Lacey

Upon returning from being out of town this weekend, I received notification that Lacey Jones passed away Saturday, October 13 around 6:30 a.m. Our school held "Love for Lacey" week last week, when we raised money for her family through hat day, ribbon day, lollipops for Lacey day, and a weeklong penny war. It will be a tough day tomorrow at school. Our sixth graders have been with Lacey since Kindergarten. I am sorry that I never got to know Lacey--to hear people speak of her let me know she was a good person. She cared for others despite the fact she was sick. Rest in peace, Lacey--you are no longer a sick little girl.
