In a heartbreaking post, Lacey penned a letter to her late sister writing: ...My beautiful sister, Wendy.

...Our hearts are shattered into a million pieces that I don’t know how we will ever put back together again now that you’re gone.

...We love and adore you more than we can ever say and we will continue to forever and ever and ever.

...The shocking loss has left us so broken hearted. Our lives will never be the same without my dear sister, but we cling to the promises of Jesus that we will be together again in eternity.

...Please keep our family, especially her two boys, in your hearts and prayers. Thank you so much💔....

Lacey, 38, made audiences laugh as Gretchen Wieners in the teen comedy Mean Girls – and has since captured hearts as a well-known Hallmark actress.

She's appeared in dozens of films for the channel – including A Wish For Christmas (2016), Christmas in Rome (2019) and Love, Romance & Chocolate (2019).

Last year, fans were delighted when the cast of Mean Girls reunited to recreate one of the movie's most famous scenes.

Taking to Instagram, co-star Lindsay Lohan posted the clip to her 8.6 million followers, as she and her fellow co-stars filmed their parts from their respective homes.

The video begins with a scene from the 2004 movie where Lindsay's character Cady and Rachel McAdams' character Regina George are discussing Gretchen Wieners running for Spring Fling Queen.

As Regina goes on to slam Gretchen for not being pretty, she then badmouth's co-star Amanda Seyfried...s Karen Smith for being ...a s**t....

The video switches back and forth between the movie and present day as 34-year-old Lindsay reads from a script on her sofa.

As fans of the film will know, Gretchen was listening in on the call the entire time and once Regina hangs up, she dials in Karen and hints that someone has said something bad about her.

Both Lacey and Amanda are seen hanging at home as they play their parts, with 34-year-old Amanda laying on her bed.

As it goes in the film, Karen accidentally moans about Gretchen to Gretchen - thinking she's on the other line with Regina.

Regina has previously lied to Cady and said she's going to bed, but really she wants to go out with Karen.

But after Gretchen tells Karen what Regina has just said about her being ...a s**t,... Karen changes her mind.

The scene ends with Karen’s iconic fake cough and Regina’s equally memorable response: ...Boo, you wh**e!...


More of the cast came together shortly after the recreation to celebrate Mean Girls' 16th anniversary - but one person admitted it was ...awkward....

Jonathan Bennett who played the role of Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels admitted the virtual aspect of the reunion made it rather odd.

He said of the reunion, which was moderated by Katie Couric: ...It was a moment!

...Because here's the thing … we haven't all been together in 16 years, and to all be together for the first time, and do it on Zoom - already it's awkward to see each other for the first time; you want to say so many things - but then when you're on a Zoom call, it's even more awkward because you're waiting for the person to talk and you don't want to interrupt....
