Students Remember Classmate Killed in Crash

It's been almost five months since the tragic accident on Highway 84 in Wicksburg where six people were killed. Five of them were family members of former Alabama tailback Siran Stacy.

On a beautiful day in Hartford, classmates and family gathered to celebrate the life and times of a nine-year-old Sydney Stacy with the same qualities.

An emotional Siran Stacy spoke for the first time publicly about his daughter and their relationship to the children thanking Glenda Brown for the influence she was.

The idea for the bench and lantern came from the children and their parents with the hope that Sydney’s memory could last and a light would shine almost as bright as her smile.

Friday, there were not too many dry eyes in Hartford and as Stacy told News 4 it was a blessing to have the community support for his daughter, just as his daughter was a blessing to the community.

Stacy and his three-year-old daughter Shelly were the only survivors of the crash in November that took four children and his wife, Ellen.

    Sydney was a very special child who brought JOY into the lives of all who knew her. She and Lequisa are missed daily by those of us who were lucky enough to know them. I have been working our high school cheerleader tryout clinic this week and remember Lequisa, as a senior last year, helping to teach the material to the new girls. My heart breaks all over again for Glenda and Siran. I know that each new season brings precious memories and heartache. God will bring you through it. You are a living testimony to us all. God Bless You!!!
