|Stacy Maxwell Falgout|
|May 28, 1972 - December 19, 2000|
Stacy was a loving mother to her 8 year old daughter Haley at the time of her death. Stacy and I wed January 22, 2000. We decided to immediately try to have a baby. Soon after we wed, by the grace of God, she became pregnant. This was one of, if not the most, joyous day of our lives together up to this point. On December 15, 2000, she delivered a baby girl. We named her Anna Grace. This topped all the joy I had ever experienced in my life. It truly was a miracle. All through her pregnancy Stacy and the baby remained healthy and well. We left the hospital on December 17th, and within a span of hours we were back at the hospital. Monday afternoon, December 18th, she was diagnosed as having NF in her episiotomy site. My joy suddenly came crashing down on me on December 19 when she went into cardiac arrest and died at 1 pm after a 2 day nightmare in the same hospital that helped her deliver a new life 5 days earlier.
Stacy was, and still is, in a lot of hearts she touched, a very special person. She was so full of life and had a smile that touched any and all she greeted with it. She was beautiful, both inside and out. She is missed by a multitude of family and friends every day, and she will never be forgotten. Anna Grace is now 3 years old, and looks just like her mother.
