We have lost our dear friend Lacey
It is with great sadness that I must relay that our beloved Lacey has lost her battle with cancer. She passed early this morning in her sleep with her aunt and uncle at her bedside. To us, EVL, Lacey was a friend, extraordinary decorator, confidant, counselor, and guildmate. I can honestly say that I have never known anyone that I had not actually met in person who has had such an effect on me, and others. When she delivered bad news that she had received from her doctor she actually comforted those around her. “It’ll be okay”. “I’ve got this”. If I heard them once I heard them 100 times. She had nothing but friends in this community and in her real life. She enriched our lives each day and we are all poorer since her passing. We’ll miss you, Lacey. Godspeed, my dear.
