April 23, 2019
Bridge Ministries and its friends knew her well from her regular attendance at our Sunday Celebrations, and Roots & Wings Bible Studies. Stephanie loved to talk about the Lord and in all the circumstances we can think of, she had a warm and engaging smile for all she came in contact with. The following are some thoughts we compiled that testify to Stephanie’s Christlike persona.
- She had the face of an Angel! Even to the glow that seemed to radiate from her skin. Her Angelic smile was contagious; she lit up a room when she entered.
- She was ever so humble, yet carefree, and willing to join in any activity.
- Not without feeling, she was able to express herself in silence.
- She was in tune with what she wanted, what she liked, and what she didn’t like!
- And she liked spicy food… but especially, she loved her mother’s cooking!
- She was decisive while still being a woman of few words, and known never to raise her voice in anger.
- Stephanie had a style all her own. Everywhere she went, she let her light shine.
Stephanie excelled at what she set her mind to. At a Bridge fundraiser a few years ago, she was the top fund-raiser taking pledges! Many were inspired, simply working alongside of her. Those memories help those of us left behind to be filled with joy. Better yet though, we realize the outcome of her faith is more precious than our greatest times on earth. God was calling His daughter home, and gracefully she left this world behind, looking to her place in heaven, in the presence of Lord Jesus.
