lege of being available to encourage them, guide them, and meet their friends. I was very active in their school activities, and even became almost a second mom to some of their friends.”  After years of prosperity and family dedication, the marriage ended. Broke and broken, Stacy returned to the solace and familiarity of the Aledo area, her parents, her sisters and brother, and her real estate roots.  “I developed a strong spirituality after that experience, learning to forgive myself and others. I became a better example for my girls.” This new inner-strength sustained her after the sudden death of her father in 2012.  “I knew we could not be lost in grief; we had to go on,” Stacy said. “I loved the family business. I also felt strongly that my personal legacy and my professional destiny was to continue Century 21 Lynch.”  Work challenges were not the only bumps in the road during those years.  “My daughter, Dani, shared the fact that she was gay as she became an adult,” Stacy said. “I did some soul- searching and knew I loved my daughter exactly the way God made her. Today, I accept her completely and enjoy a beautiful relationship with her — the same as with my younger daughter, Amberly.”  In early 2017, Stacy Lynch bought Century 21 Lynch from her mother. Today, Stacy leads 36 real estate agents in handling nearly $2.4 million annually in residential home sales and purchases. Dani Doak, her older daugh- ter, serves as office manager. The group also markets three new home developments in Parker and Tarrant counties with approximately 120 luxury custom home lots.  In addition, Stacy holds more than $15 million in commercial real estate listings. This includes nationally prominent Wilks Development as a major client. Wilks Development owns one of the newest developments in the local area, a 300-acre mixed-use retail and residen- tial project, The Shops of Willow Park and Willow Park North. The property is located adjacent to the former site of Trinity Meadows Racetrack.  When asked to name the most significant factor in summoning courage to walk through tough times as a mother or otherwise, Stacy Lynch said she relies on a scripture, from Isaiah 40:31: “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on the wings of eagles. They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint.”  TEXAS BUTANE CO., INC. Morris & Judy V. (Kemp) White South Side Square • 103 W.
