I didn’t know Stephanie well but I do know her daughter, Ursula, like a sister. Stephanie must have been an extradinary woman to have raised Ursula to be the wonderful woman and friend she has become. Love to you always, Ursula. Prayers for you to find peace. Same to the other members of your family. Bless you all during this difficult time.
