    Thank you so much for sharing your beloved Stephanie with us. She was such an Angel in this world and we loved her so much here at the office. She brought smiles to us on bad days with her catchphrases and stories. She was such a hard worker and always admired for her dedication and positive attitude even on difficult calls. During night shift she would always keep us laughing. “Oh my labra” I’m going to miss you so much Miss thing, if you already meant so much to me and everyone at the office I can’t imagine how your family feels. My condolences, I hope you find peace and comfort soon. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

    Sweet Stephanie, it’s hard to put into words how I feel and how greatly you’ll be missed. Things I’ll miss the most is seeing the glow of a room when you walk in and smile. You smile can truly light a room up. That bubbly personality can bring joy to all that know you. Truly know you. I so dearly love you and will miss you every day until we meet again.

    I am so sorry to hear about sweet Stephanie. I looked forward in seeing her and have been missing her. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. I only had the privilege of knowing her and working with her for a short time, but she made a big mark on my life. Rest in peace my friend.

    Stephanie, you will always be in my heart. I remember babysitting you while you mom and dad would go to work. You are a beautiful woman and forever be missed. I love you so much!!

    Stephanie was one of life’s true angels; her goodness shone through even when she was having a bad day herself. Stephanie has definitely left an imprint on mine and many people’s hearts. Thank you for sharing your light Steph! You will never be forgotten xx

    My sweet lovely friend,
    I have so much to say and I don’t know where to begin. The last thing you said to me was “I love your sweet face” and I believe my response was “not as beautiful as you” that always melts my heart. Thank you for always being there for me. I will miss our late night chats and your silly jokes. I know our friendship was short but you gave me a life time of joy in my heart. Whenever I had a bad day you brought laughter to my heart. Thank you for the beautiful blue scarf. I will think of you everytime I wear it. I am still enjoying the coffee you gave me last month. You were right, it has enough caffeine in it to run a tractor. Your mom raised a wonderful person. Thank you for being my friend. When we meet again you better keep your promise and show me how to crochet. Rest easy my dear friend

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. It was a joy to work with Stephanie and I will never forget the warmth her smile brought to the office each and every day

    My heart aches for the loss of our beautiful and beloved Stephanie. I had the great pleasure of being one of Stephanie’s supervisors and working besides her for the past several months. Stephanie was a very hard working employee and always went out of her way to help our team and offered a rare empathetic heart to our customers. Countless amounts of times Stephanie would help distressed customers out. She would comfort them and offer her heart to their situations and it would take my breath away on how caring she was to strangers. 
    I never saw or heard Stephanie complain, she was always a ball of sunshine that brought our office much laughter and happiness. When I would call Stephanie to take her breaks or ask her a question she would often make me laugh and say “thank you for for flying Southwest Airlines” or “Walmart, how can I help you?” She made me laugh and I enjoyed coming into work and seeing her smiling, beautiful face. She was witty and cared so much about all of her office peers. She always offered to buy people food and I had to force her to go on breaks because she would work non stop. 
    I was Stephanie’s supervisor and I taught her a lot about the job and helped coach her…But in reality, Stephanie helped teach me, coach me, about how valuable and precious life is. She reminded me to laugh and to endlessly love, be kind and compassionate to everyone. 
    Stephanie will be missed every single day and we will forever keep her spirit alive in and outside of the office. We will forever grieve her and honor her. Grief is the last act of love we give those who we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was and always will be great love.

    Stephanie was such a great, nice person. I really enjoyed working with… she will be missed very much

    Dear sweet perky lovely Stephanie You were always happy and smiling and your personality was contagious. I will miss you bumping into my chair when you walked by and giggling when I turned to you. What a cutie in that pink hoodie, you always made me smile. I am (we are all blessed) to have had the honor to know you. We will forever keep you in our thoughts, hearts and voices. We will fill our void with beautiful memories. We are heartbroken.

  11. annabelle ferdinand says:

    Stephanie was a force to be reckoned with. Her determination and compassionate nature was something that’s rare to find and was something I always admired about her. Words can’t describe her luminous spirit that could brighten the darkest corners. She was truly a remarkable person and will be missed.

  12. Inez Portillo says:

    Stephanie, you were a ball of light. Always came to work in with a smile on your face, always talking to anyone and everyone. I don’t think there was a single person that didn’t have a smile or laugh when talking to you. I remember when you and I worked a late night, I was just sitting at my desk and then I heard a “hi friend” I looked around and then saw you sticking your head in the isle and we struck up a conversation. We are all going to be missing that piece of sunshine that you brought into our lives. I’m going to miss you tremendously. Keep watch over us Stephanie.
