To those who loved Stephanie: I never met her, but I feel a closeness because of all the times Rick and her caregiver told us about her at the Mt. Pleasant support group. They expressed such caring for her. My prayers are rising to heaven tonight for the family.

Dear Rick ---and Jillian---I never knew Stephanie personally --- just "knew" her through you. You have my sincere sympathy on her passing. I know how sad your hearts must be (I've been there) but Stephanie is at peace now and that's a blessing.
My sympathy and prayers,
Dee Markle

A best friend is someone you can call on the phone
For no reason at all
Its nice to have a best friend to share all your secrets with
And to share their secrets too
To always be there for each other-no matter what
Our friendship is a priceless gift of faithfulness and grace and nothing in this world could ever take its place.
Rest in peace Bud.

My sweet sweet mother, I miss you so much. I wish you could’ve been here to see all I’ve done these past few years but I’m happy you will get to be a part of everything from this time on. You brought grace, dignity, and humanity to everything you did. You brought love, empathy, and a helping hand to every person who was lucky enough to meet you. I can’t believe I was the one lucky enough to be your daughter. I love you, always forever.

Stephanie took me & all my flaws & loved me forever. Having her share her life with me is something that my words can't come close to describing. She made me so happy. The time was way too short my love. I will see you as soon as my journey here is over. I love you...
