"its approaching one year now, wish it would have turned out differently if only we knew what was really going on. we would have helped. your family is missing you"
"Stephanie u were my favorite person to talk to when something bothered me. I loved the conversations we had. I loved looking in ur eyes ur my best friend. I Love u lots I really do. Kisses"
"Steph so much i could say first and foremost my heart goes out to blanche, John, kimmy, dana, and katie. You will be missed so much!! You were so intelligent and beautiful. Your beauty was not only on the outside but also on the inside. A rare find just the outlook you had on life no matter how you felt you always had a smile. The world will definitely be a sadder place with out you. I love you and you will forever be missed! !!"
"God Bless you Stephanie, Rest in Peace, Hang out with the angels, they'll be happy when they meet you !!!"
"First my condolences to my sister in law Blanche. You are a hard working and dedicated mother. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to spend hours with all of you including Stephanie before the holidays. We talked alot that night at your house. Stories about life's twists n turns in addition to make up hints. Handbags and hair colors! I know that i will miss her beautiful smile and style. I'm sure your life will never be the same without your daughter..for that I am truly sorry!"
"Sorry Steph, I'm going to have to let everyone in on your dirty little secret. Many of you probably don't know, but Stephanie was extremely intelligent and a bit of a closet nerd. She could talk for hours and hours about topics like astrophysics and planetary science and she had some very strong opinions about the direction NASA is going. We probably watched more documentaries than movies. However, as soon as I would say anything to her about being a brain, she would get really embarrassed and then binge watch "keeping up with the real basketball wives of basic cable," just to prove that she wasn't scary intelligent. I never understood it, but it was one of the many silly things I loved about her."
"Steph I can't believe you are not with us and you are an angle now..You were 1 in a million we just seen each other not that long ago outside of Path Mark and you were worried about your mom with her job..You were such a loving person and would give your shirt of your back for anybody..Rest easy baby girl you def gonna be missed by so many people"
"Stephanie was such a beautiful person. Always smiling and cheerful. She was a pleasure to work with . she was a good listener and always knew what to say to make you laugh and feel better . She will be missed."
"Stephanie was a sweet girl, always greeted me with a smile, only knew her a short time, but it was a blessing to get to know her, may she rest in peace"
May u fly high baby girl.
Prayers are with your family.
"Rest In Peace Stephanie, I Will Miss You & Your Beautiful Smile. May All your Problem's Be Solved. Again,Love & Miss You. So Sorry For Your Family, May The Lord Grant Them Peace in Knowing You Are With The Lord In Heaven."
I remember sitting on the bench with you at Pathmark
We would talk about customers, the weather ,you shared your feelings with me as I shared mine with you
You were definitely a shining star to many
You are going to be sadly missed by far more than you could think possible
Your beautiful smile your kind peck on the cheek or that warm Hello when we would see each other like we were best of friends
Your personality was the best we always had a laugh
You surly were One of a kind
I pray that your family finds peace in this
Their time of mourning as they remember the
Joy and light that radiated from within you
May your soul Rest in Peace Stephanie
Remembering our times on the bench
Always your old friend
"Glad we all spent time together recently... As always, you were interested in my jewelry and in me seeing yours. Something we had in common.... When I told you a friend of mine complimented how pretty you were, you seemed genuinley surprised. My reply, " you are beautiful Steph, even angelic" we laughed.... You are NOW a beautiful angel Stephanie!"
"I can't believe that you're gone, we've known each other since we were little, you were always such a caring, friendly, kind hearted girl you were taken too soon & will forever be missed by many"
"May you rest in peace...my prayers to her family n friends, you will be missed dearly and never forgotten...RIP!!"
