It's been three years now since you've gone to be with Our Heavenly Father and Jesus our Savior! Its hard to believe you've been gone that long. My oh my. Miss you my precious sister! I think of you all the time. I missed you while you were living in Texas for those number of years. We did enjoy the times you were able to make it back home for your visits. Those times were very dear to me. I miss you Stephanie....I always will. I am happy you are experiencing the best life ever now, but I do miss you. Your laugh, your tenderness...you wisdom, your kindness, your patience. You touched my life like none other. I wished I had been able to help you in this life more. I know your heart was to move to Louisiana to serve the Lord there in the ministry and I understood that...but I missed you so much then and I still do now. We are all just waiting, daily, for the sound of the trumpet and have the Rapture take place. Until we are united in heaven, I'll always be thinking of you and thanking God for making us sisters! I'll see you later. Love you!!

Well, Stephanie....its been almost a year since I last posted something. But..I do think of you daily. Wondering what its like up in heaven....with God The Father and with Jesus our Savior. You are experiencing eternal life now...and its still hard to believe. One of these days it seems The Lord will sound the trumpet and call up in the Rapture..the world is getting so wicked and unruly and becoming so destructive on so many levels. We are holding tight unto Jesus and waiting for his call. Pudgy just joined you all..and that's almost hard to believe too!! My oh my. One day, we will all be together and I can't wait for that day. To be with Jesus and God Our Heavenly Father for all of eternity. So many are waiting for the Blessed Hope and that blessed day!! God be praised! We will join you in all that continuous heavenly praise unto God one day. Love you, my Stephanie and I miss you. But will see you soon...one of these days!!

Steph...its been 2 years now since we've missed having you with us. Think of you every day! Still miss those years when you lived in Texas, but was glad for the times you traveled back home to be with us all. I love you my most dear precious sister. It still seems so different to know you are now experiencing heaven with the Lord and all our other loved ones that went on before you. Again, as always...I think of you. I miss you. My heart is sad. But one day...we will all be together in the Presence of God Almighty and Jesus our Savior. Maybe, soon, we will hear that trumpet sound and we'll see you sooner than anticipated. Waiting for that....waiting. Love you dearly.

I'm missing you dearly, my precious precious sister! I'm sad I can no longer see you, but I'm glad you are no longer having to enduring all the hardships this life brought your way. Jesus was your strength and you shinned greatly for him regardless of your circumstances. I do miss you. Tears will always flow until I can be with you and see you happier than you've ever been. I love you my sister! I miss you so very much!

Auntie Stevie...
I think of you often and how much love you always had to give. I think of the tough sassy girl that I never knew because by the time I knew you God created a soft, loving, woman of God that loved in a way most never learn how. Ok ok, you still had sas, but always came with a smile and laughter that followed. You made my life so much better, auntie Stevie. When i felt left out and alone, you pulled me in and told me I was special. When I felt unprotected, you opened your home and let me stay with you. When I crashed your car, you didn't yell at me. You were the most amazing example of love and even though a tear still falls down my face from missing you so, It is always with a smile on my lips because you guided me, loved me, and protected me in ways that only you could.  I love you dearly. Today and Always. You are my one and only... someone no one can replace.  Forever in my heart. Happy Valentines, Stevie. Im sure every day feels like the best day and I can not wait to see you again and walk streets of gold together with our saviour.  Ps. Did I say I miss u? Because I sure sure do.  ♡~ StaceyJoy

Love you my one and only sister....my most precious sister!!

Today was the last day...one year ago..that we were able to look upon your face and be with you for the last time while on this earth. Miss you all the time...think of you so much. I'm sad I can no longer see you anymore in this life...but am looking forward to the day that we can be together once again in the presence of God Almighty and Jesus our Savior...in service for all eternity. I am so grateful we have this wonderful hope ahead of us; you are experiencing it now and one day we will join you in that wonderful life experience. I love you my most precious sister!! ....until then....we will continue to live and serve the Lord God Almighty...you in heaven and I here on earth. God be praised and praised and praised now and for all eternity! What a mighty God we serve!!

It's been a year now my dear Stephanie that you've went to be with Jesus. I think of you all the time!! I'm missing you but I know your life is now wonderful and you are praising Jesus and serving God the Father now...and for all eternity. I just miss my only sister. I regret that you lived so far away from us and I couldn't be with you over those past few years...but I look forward to the day when I can see you again. I miss you so terribly much! I am happy for you that your life is without all the pain, suffering and health challanges you had for most of your adult life here on earth and that brings me comfort knowing you arent suffering anymore. I do miss you terribly.  I love you my sweet precious sister!

I never thought you would be gone. Despite all the heath struggles you have had, I just always thought you would be here. I love you, and I miss you. You were always a gentle, loving hug. A laugh. A smile. A snicker. I will always remember your cute little feet. Your big smile and even bigger heart. For all the times I slept over at your house in Butler, listening to the tick toc of the clock in the late night hours. For all the hugs and laughter. For the support I didn't even realize meant as much as it did. For teaching me... even how to apply make up. For all of the amazing memories. Thank you. I can't say how much I will miss you, but if the last week or so tells me anything it will be impossible to replace you. Will miss you so much Auntie Stevie... love you with all my heart. ♡♡

Love you beyond expression my most precious sister. By God's design, we were blessed to have shared 63 years together for which I will relive over and over through some very wonderful memories!! And we had many!! My heart aches for I will no longer be able to talk, touch, laugh or walk with you in this life any longer, but I anxiously wait for the day we will be together again, while praising and serving our Lord and Savior for all eternity! I miss you terribly, but my heart soars in wonder and joy knowing you are truly living life to its absolute fullest now more than ever before while enjoying the awesome presence of God Almighty and walking the streets of gold with other family members that have gone on before us. I will miss your sweet tender, gracious, kind and giving heart. Your life has deeply touched and moved mine. Memories of you will continually remind me of the love of God, for that was shown over and over to me by your committed and devoted life to Him! See you in glory, Stephanie!! Love you now, more than I ever thought possible! See you later, my most precious sis...see you later!!
