To talk about her in past tense is heartbreaking. But remembering the woman she was, is amazing. Stephanie was hard working, dedicated and a joy to be around. She always had sage advice for her kids or friends. She always said there was nothing a late night conversation and a cup of coffee couldn’t fix. She inspired me to be better than my situation. To become half the mother she was, will be an accomplishment. She fought for what she believed in. Went to war for her kids. Loved with everything she was. To say she will be missed, puts it mildly. But, she got to donate her body, which was something she was passionate about.
