It is hard to believe that it has been over a year since you went to heaven. I think of you often and feel sad and then I smile when I remember how you used to make me laugh everytime we met in the halls passing to or from lunch. I always pray for your beautiful girls and your family and know that you are looking down and protecting them. I miss you!
Posted by Madeline Sears on December 25, 2011
You are always in my heart, everyday I see you in my memories, I see you at work at lunchtime, I see you shopping at the market, I see you pregnant and happy. You will be with me forever! When I look into your beautiful babies eyes, you are there. You are with me everywhere I go, we will meet again...Peace to you, my friend...

It's been years since I last saw Staria, but I do remember her well from our High School days at East Providence High School. I'm so sorry this had to happen to you and your girls, I remember you so well you were so kind and nice. My thoughts and prayers are with your girls and your family. You will now be the angel that protects your two little ones may they be blessed with love all their lives.

Staria had a way of touching people in her own way, if it was giving someone a nickname or just being there to listen, she will be greatly missed by those she knew. May God and you watch over your beautiful babies who will always have you in their hearts. RIP Staria

Posted by Dora David on January 2, 2011
If tears could build a stairway and heartaches make a lane, we'd walk the path to Heaven and bring you back again. A heart of gold stopped beating, a shining smile at rest, God broke our hearts to prove he only takes the best. Our friendship chain is broken again and nothing seems the same, but God will call us one by one and the chain will link again. You will never be forgotten. RIP Staria!!

It still feels like one bad bad nightmare. You live one street away from me and I find myself driving by your house quite often wondering how this could have happened. Staria you will so be missed. I think not one Christmas can ever pass us by w/out remembering you. RIP

Staria and I first met in 6 grade or was it 7th. We rode the bus together. We use to sit in the back seat and overexagerate every bump we went over. I will have that one of a kind signature of yours in my head forever. A STAR and ia...There are so many memories. We spent many many years together sharing classes and stories and jokes! I never saw you sad. You always had a smile!  You touched every life you every encountered with that beautiful soul of yours.  You are truelly one of a kind.  RIP Never Forgotten. Till we meet agaion..Love you!

I have so many memories of us.  I guess I’ll start with the first time I walked into 10th grade office training.  I sat write next to you and Jen. You looked over at me and said “Hey, I’m Staria” and I said “hey, I’m Julie” I knew in those first few moments that there was something special about you. We would laugh that class away almost everyday.  Mrs. G didn’t know what to do with us. Once she told us to stop laughing and I tried God knows we tried but I looked over at you as I was trying to hide my huge smile and you looked at me and I just lost it, we laughed so hard Mrs. G started laughing and she couldn’t stop.  Those were the good old days.  After graduation we still kept in contact. As we grew and I had my kids, you came over one October day, and you, me and my two girls carved pumpkins. You told them that you ate the seeds and they looked at you like you had two heads, you laughed and then showed them how to put them on a cookie sheet and put salt and pepper on them and baked them. After they came out of the oven everyone tried them and both kids spit there’s out on the floor and you just laughed, they said it tasted like salty cardboard. And from that October to every October we saved the pumpkin seeds for you. I will hold all of my memories of you close to my heart and will never forget how special you were and how much you ment to soooooo many people. 

I love you Staira, untill me meet again my friend,

O Staria, I don't know where to start there are so many memories we've created over the years. We've had so much fun together my sista from anotha mista (as you say). We talked or text each other everyday for the past 20 yrs.  One of my favorites memories was when we were about 17. Me, you and Gina were going out with friends that night and we were at your apt. and you locked yourself out of the apt and left your money and keys inside. Now what do we do? So I decide to go out her hall way window onto the roof of the house...the whole time Staria is behind me say " your crazy girl, your crazy, don't do it"...but laughing her butt off the whole time...While Gina holds the window open for me (thanks Gina). So I climbed out on the roof and walked up against the building like a cat burgler till I got to Staria's apt window. I still don't know how no one called the cops on me, anyways I took my coat off ( yeah it was winter ) and wrapped it around my hand and broke each corner of the glass....I never forget how much that empressed Staria...she said " where did you learn that?"  I told her I watch TV..and we laughed our butts off again..I got into her apt and let her in the front door with Gina... and saved the night. We still talked about that night to this day. I've gotten that girl out of locked cars and fixed so much for her she always called me the portuguese macgyver, I'll miss hearing that so much.  Still can't believe I won't ever make a new memory with you. I love and miss you so much Staria xoxoxo...

Alway in my, Lucy
