Thank you everyone. My family and I appreciate all the kind words and support through this hard time. This page was shared to give people a chance to post beautiful memories and pictures of Shasta. Reading all the post reminds us how loved BooBoo is and how much of an impact she made on this world. In her short but fulfilling 25 years with us, we have been blessed with longtime friends of hers that are our family now. To anyone who prayed, posted, cried, loved, donated and joined us at her service, THANK YOU! We will always speak of my sister with a smile and continue to remember her with love. She was always smiling and showing us how to be a little kinder in the world. We also want to thank Justens Funeral Home for helping us navigate through this hard time with so much compassion. Anyone who has reached out to us, we might not have gotten back right away but your words and love has helped us. Every beautiful story that was shared about our BooBoo is just a reminder how special she was to anyone who crossed her path in life. And to her crew, you all have been a blessing to her in her life and we love you all. The pain is forever but the love shal carry us through. Thank you everyone. Love The Stapletons and Jones ❤

The death of a precious loved one a the highlight of her life is most certainly one of the most devastating experience a family can face. At times, the pain of the loss will seem unbearable. Please know that there are friends who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with your family during this difficult time of grief. Questions will come up about why do we suffer and die? Please go to www.jw.org to get satisfying answers to these and other questions about life. Our prayers are with you and your family.

She brought so many people together within the Bassnectar community me her and Phillip met through the forum on his website and planned to meet up at north coast in Chicago. The three of us had a group chat and talked for hours that first night. We all met at north coast and raged front row. She was always so happy and always smiling. I will never forget her kindness and the great times we had together.

Randy & Trease Stapleton left a message on October 22, 2018:
My brother has lost his daughter. This hurts Trease and I tremendously. I very much took it for granted that Shasta would live long to bring her mother and father all of the joys a daughter can. I couldn't guess in a hundred years she'd be gone and I'd listen to my brother pour out his broken heart. Shasta, it really ought to be different and I regret badly that it can't be. You were a bright and lovely person in our lives, you were good family, and too much is darkened now without you. -Your Uncle Randy and Aunt Trease

Sabrina Stapleton left a message on October 21, 2018:
There are no words that I can write, no matter how literarily pristine, to bring justice to the true tragedy & horror that has become of you, dear cousin. Your legacy continues to dance on our earth, engraved in the hearts of countless paths that you have touched. You devoted your being to privileging others with your unconditional love, filling their gaps till they were wholesome once more. Your voice chimes in thy consciousness and effervescent laugh soothes thy heart, while one continues their march. Till the day we meet again, my blood.

Brian Stapleton left a message on October 20, 2018:
Shasta, Have you become another in our Beloved Line, a young Stapleton, made forever young? My same flesh, oh cousin. Were I granted some magic to unwind the sequence of events a few short days and have you back I'd pay something sincere and heavy for that. Each day now is a day you could've been here, there are sweet words you might've said, people you might've warmly loved, good deeds you might've done that can only go unsaid, unloved, and undone. We've been pillaged terrible by Providence Most High. If you have Peace Eternal, little cousin.. what we have is horror and agony. Memories of you, that's what we have now, cousin. And an unknown time.. the duration between today and that day I will see your face again, my blood-kin, on the other side. -Your Cousin Brian
Danielle Kappel left a message on October 20, 2018:
