    Mary and family:

    So deeply saddened to learn of your loss. While we did not know Stephanie personally, the write up captures and creates a picture of "pure joy." May her vibrant spirit in this life and the absolute knowledge that she is celebrating with Christ, your family already and heaven, and all the Saints bring you some measure of consolation.

    Be assured of our prayers; be good to yourself and each other.

    Blessings- Petrie family

    Stephanie it was your smile that I always noticed first each time we met. I had really hoped to see you Steph one more time before you left us but it wasn't to be. I will always remember how welcome you always made me feel, and how much you loved a good time. Oh, what a good dancer you were; I remember the dance party we had when I visited with my family, I could barely keep up with you but we had a blast. Maybe life wasn't always easy, but you did good my dear Stephanie; you knew what counted and shared your love. In many respects you showed us what our own best selves could become, if we could pay attention to what you had to teach us. Love you and miss you. Your cousin Clark.

    Stepahnie was a true joy for our Parish. I really enjoyed working with her as the Sacristan when she was an Alter Server. She always had a smile for every one. She will truly be missed.
