"From Debbie Sciarra

Dear Stephanie,


The First Thought

The first thought every day
The first breath upon awakening,
The first step onto the floor,
will be about  her.

There is no shame, no blame, no pity
in this for however long it lasts.

Everyone left behind
has a different capacity for survival.
But the scar, whether healed or healing
will stay always, as it should,
as a reminder of a flame that burned
so brightly and
a spirit that will never leave you...

"Stephanie,  I think of you so very often and now that your birthday month is here I reflect back on your life on Earth that was cut way too short.  You fly among the Angels now because that is what you are.  I think back to your smile, that mischievous giggle, that warmth and silliness that we together shared with Mommy.  How I wish you were down here with us but I know you are an Angel above looking down on everyone who loves you.  Please watch over those who hold you dear and whose hearts continue to shed tears.  You are loved and so deeply missed. xoxoxo M#2"

Missing you so much that it physically hurts.  I know you know how much I love and miss you  but just in case, I love you more than the sun, stars, moon and sky."

"Stephanie
It was minutes ago last year that a noise at the door woke me from a restful sleep. Although I know now what that noise was, at the time it had me both confused and angry. I figured I would find you out front smoking and I would have able to curse you out but u weren't there. The dogs were convinced somebody just went thru the door as was I so I figured I'd check mom's room but she was just waking up. As I turned from closing her door I saw the crack in your door and saw your little feet poking from behind the dresser. I knew it. Just from the sight of your toes. I then barged in to find you on your knees, forehead to the ground, facing east like a Muslim in prayer. Cold, no response, and everything changed. It's been a year, Steph and I'm doing well. There's not a day that goes by where I don't see you or laugh with you or mourn you or miss you. From the the depths of my soul I can hear my voice as a 5 year old calling for you. As if pleading with you to stop or come back. Not that you would listen ; ) I ask that you don't stop and don't cone back. Continue to evolve and grow sister. Bring us warmth in the light, bring us comfort in the breeze, remind us to pause at the fleeting moments of majesty here on Earth so that we're better equipped for the our return home. In perpetual bliss. Where emotion sounds like music and looks like color. Where the beauty of pain is realized as the sweetest summers shower. Where love overwhelms us and all things are known. Where u exist as a light brighter than any human has ever seen.
I love you so much Stephy. You were and still remain the best friend I've ever known.
Bish
; )"

"Stephanie my love how do I begin.  One year ago today my life changed and I will never be the same again.  This was not supposed to happen to our family.  Your were too strong and fiery, you were indestructible, how can this have happened.  Our family has a deep void that we feel every minute of every day.  I was blessed to have been your mother and could never have believed that you would be gone.  But as it does to so many other families, it happened to us too and we must learn to go on with just the memories to hold close to our hearts. It has been a very difficult year trying to adjust to life without you in it.  I go in your room and in your closet where your "essence"  still remains.  It helps me feel you.  I believe you are in a better place and we, your family and friends are the ones that mourn and try to go on in a life without you.  You are my heart, my soul and the air I breathe. Please continue to dance in the sky and sing in the angels choir as Ij await the day that we can be together again my love.  Remember I love you more than the sun, sky, moon and stars"

"Sweet Steph..It is so difficult to even consider that one entire yr has passed since that terrible day when you left us to be with God.  He called you home so that you could be at peace and have no more pain.  The pain that is left behind is for those to endure that miss you so greatly.  I worry about your Mom, Dad and Brother Bear and I hope God gives them the strength and ability to find some comfort in the wonderful memories you left them with.  Rest in Peace Sweet One.  Love Mindy"

This tribute was added by Mindy Lazar on 9th March 2014

"Steph,

I find myself going to this tribute page often.  It allows me to reflect, to smile, to cry and to always remember that you despite being far away are still so close in the hearts of so many.  If only you could know just how many of us loved you and what joy you brought despite all of the heartache you endured at times.

How is it possible that your one year anniversary in heaven is soon upon us when it doesn't seem really that you are gone?.  I pray everyday that your family especially Mommy #1 has been able to find even a trace of peace.

Miss you so much, Mindy"

This tribute was added by Mindy Lazar on 11th January 2014

"Stephanie..I sit here reading these tributes knowing that you are finally at peace but knowing that you would be so beyond angry that "grumpy old women" is now just a memory. I remember all of the fun times the three of us had, how you always wanted to go along because you knew the two crazy beeotches would make the world seem right for all of us.  You were a blessing to all and I will never forget the laughter, the tears, the closeness we shared.  How despite MY being the adult it was YOU who stayed with me so I could come home to NJ and comforted and protected me until we got there.  I cannot begin to imagine how hard the holidays were for your family but I hope they found strength in knowing that you have finally earned your wings and you are without pain.  I hope that one day you will be able to guide the Grumpy Old Women back on the same path here on earth.

I still cannot do a selfie like you (no one can) and I still cannot do my make up like you (yes I am too old).  Truly a day does not go by that you are not in my prayers.  Rest in Peace and know that you are dearly loved and missed."
