My thoughts and prayers remain with Stephanie's family, especially her daughter, Alissa.  In watching the interview with Alissa on KETV, I was struck by her poise and also the fact that amidst her great loss, she recognized the officer who helped her, even sending him a thank-you card.  Character like that is rare, and could only be a product of a loving mother.  Some of the members who Stephanie took care of at ENVH took the time to share their thoughts and memories of her, and they are most worried and heart-broken for her daughter.  Phrases such as, "she was on of the good ones", "she always spent time with me and listened to me" were shared.  The positive impact that Stephanie had on those around her is evident, and she is missed.
