  1. Stephanie was one of the best friends a person could ever have, ever. She was a loving, warm, caring and loyal friend. Even though we had not seen each other in years, we still communicated with each other, and I will always consider her one of my best friends. I want to send my thoughts and prayers to Abby and her family, Karen Tayler, and Steph’s many, many other friends. She will always hold a special place in my heart, but I know she is laughing and having a beer with Peter and her parents at some Irish pub out in the wild blue yonder. RIP, my dear friend. Love Cindy

  3. I met Stephanie at American National. Her and Pete took my little family in, as they did so many! Steph I will miss your smile, that sense of humor and your honesty! You never babies me often telling me when I was doing something stupid! I just wish the last time I was in Texas that I had come by and seen you! Forever in my heart, God really made a special angel when he made you and Pete. Prayers to te family!
