  5. My heart is breaking for Stacey’s family, friends & her beloved dogs. I loved working with Stacey. We talked regularly while working remotely. She was such a light and funny. I will miss our talks. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. I was working with Stacey on a project relocating a clinic while losing my father unexpectedly. She shared her own experience and was very comforting during such a hard time. She was always so positive.

    My last email from Stacey was on 8/24,“Heart Attack is kind of like the word Cancer, but if he is as determined as I think you are he can get all kinds of great treatments and meds that will help.”

    Stacey will be greatly missed and was a pleasure to work with. I wish we all had more time. My deepest sympathy.

  7. I was working with Stacey on a several projects recently. I did not know her for very long but I was always impressed with her professionalism, expertise, and dedication especially when we knew she was also fiercely battling cancer. She was a very kind, upbeat, and caring person. I really enjoyed working with her and she will be missed. My sincere condolences to her family.

  8. It’s 2024 and I’m just learning of Stacey Burns passing. It has been years since I had contact with her, but she made an impact on me.
    I went to Las Vegas with her on a trip for work. She was an exceptional person that made you laugh. I remember her 20 years later and her funny spirit. As a fellow dog lover, I’m broken for her. I hope she is at peace.
