    Stefani, It was my pleasure to have gotten to know you! You were one of the most wonderful persons I’ve met in my life. You were my dog walker for a time and my dogs loved you. You will be sorely missed but not forgotten!

    Stefani – I will miss you so much. Your smile, your funny comments and just the person you are. Steve and I wouldn’t go on vacation until we booked with you! I trusted you with my furbabies every time. You are an amazing person and will be missed. I am grateful God brought us together. You have impacted my life tremendously. With tears in my eyes – I say goodbye but NEVER forgotten.
