My house is littered with Post-It notes with things I want to blog about. I don’t write nearly as often as I used to, not because I don’t want to, life just seems to get in the way (And to be totally honest, I’m not always in the right mindset to write.) This weekend I had compiled a stack of those little blue notes scribbled with my almost unreadable scratches and prepared them to be blogged about… But then I turned on my computer and found out my friend Stacey passed away.
I shared Stacey’s story with you not that long ago… Her battle with cancer, her desire to dance on So You Think You Can Dance and some video she made about her life. What you would never know from spending time with Stacey was what a struggle her life really had been for the past 20 years. She was always fun, excited and full of life… even when cancer was trying to drain her of it.
If you are a friend of mine on Facebook you have seen a bunch of photos that our mutual friends have posted (and they are all great, bringing back amazing memories of fantastic times), but I will just share this one, because this was Stacey before cancer, before 20 years of struggle, before fear, pain and illness… Still able to dance, a love that was second only to her son.
Rest In Peace Stacey Keathley.
