  15. Dear Friend says:

    I am so sad to here of Stacias passing, I grew up in the East Helena area and have known stacia very long as she worked at Heritage Food Store we did not talk very often , she kept to herself and was not a very talkative person but she really grew on me and I am going to miss her dearly and once again I am very sorry to her of her passing. She has a special place in my heart.

  16. Beth Ries says:

    I was saddened to learn my favorite checkout gal at the grocery store was sick and even sadder to learn just yesterday that she will never return. She was certainly a kind soul who cheered our days. Sympathies and prayers for your family.
