Should I feel better now that someone has been arrested for killing Jace? I don't. I don't want the most important person in the world to me to have been murdered. I don't want him to be dead. I don't want my family talked about by people who don't know. I don't want anything, but to hear Jace's voice and for him to make his funny face right before he kisses me.

I want Jace to tell me "Get me a cookie right now." And then I want to correct him and then hear him say, "Get me a cookie right now, please." I want to drive in my car and hear him from the back seat say, "Stacey, I love you, Stacey." Nothing feels better. Nothing feels ok. I don't know how anything will ever feel good again.

We have appreciated so much all the support. We need it now. Don't believe everything you read. Pray for us. Pray for Leslie. There is a long road ahead. I'll try and post more tomorrow or the next day.


  1. Stacey, my prayers are with you and your family as you try to gain some sort of understanding of everything that has and still is happening to you. May you feel gods undying love as you all begin seeking Justice for Jace!
    God bless you guys!

  2. I don't know you, but my heart just breaks for what you are going through. Praying for you so much!

  3. I am praying and I will continue to pray. I am glad the person who murdered little jace has been arrested, I pray he gets what he deserves. I don't think you have to fill better someone was arrested, because you lost something very precious to you and the world lost a precious child, nothing will ever take that away. Just remember Jace is at peace and God is taking very good care of him. I know that isn't much when your heart is breaking and hey don't let anyone tell you that you should be ok. I don't know how I would feel in your shoes but I do know that I'd be hurt deeply that someone took someone from me. Remember alot of people are praying for you and I am sorry people will be talking about your family, that is the last thing you need. May God bless you and I await more stories that you have of jace, I feel I am getting to know him through you and this story has touched me more then I can say. SO in closing I would like to say I hope everyone hugs their kids a little more, kiss them and tell them you love them everyday, even if their teens, they may say eww mom or dad quit but deep down we know they appreciate it. May God continue to be with you in your time of need.

  4. Nothing feels good when something like this happens. ((((( Stacey and family )))))))) Hang in there and try to remember that there are lots of people pulling for you, praying for you, believing in you and trusting God that justice will be done. I wish we could wind back the clock for you, and undo this terrible thing that has been done. Take comfort in God's words when you feel you are under attack, and know that truth always prevails in the end.

  5. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers

  6. Stacey,

    My prayers are with you and your family in this time. I want to know how I can get involved in the cause... Please contact me via email when convienent for you. I want to volunteer in any way possible for "Justice for Jace."

    Prayers and love with you,

  7. You and your family are in my prayers. My heart is broken just looking at the pictures....I absolutely can not fathom the pain you must be feeling. I am sitting Shiva with you in my heart. Thank you for sharing so much about such a special little boy...the world deserves to know more about him than just the details of the last few days of his life.

  8. Stacey, I am thinking of you and Leslie and your parents all the time. I know nothing will make this easier for you but I am so happy to see you are talking about Jace and how you're feeling and not bottling it up.

    Love and prayers to you all.


  9. My prayers are with you and your family. My family lost our precious baby JJ in 2008. I hope I can be as strong as you. He was murdered and the jury sentenced him to life in prison. The judge sentenced him to 12 years. He said he would be on probation the rest of his life, but that is not good enough. We don't get JJ back! I feel your pain. He was 19 months old.
