I knew Stephanie through our connections with the Handwriting Analysis communities. She was a wonderful friend and had a great sense of humor (and irony!) Always helpful and practical, Stephanie had a great interest in understanding people and what made them tick. My condolences and prayers for her family. Please know that she loved you, and was so proud of you!

Sending my sincere condolences to Aaron, Ariel, Elisha as well as Stephanie's expanded family and friends. I fondly remember all the time Stephanie and I spent together in college driving back and forth from Highland Park to UIC (mostly in traffic) as well as the times when we got our families together when our children were still little. I hope her memory will be a blessing for her family and all that knew her.

To Dana, Richard, and the entire family,

I was so saddened to hear this news. I remember Stephanie from high school, and I always thought she was a sweet and kind person. In looking for more information about her today, I saw pictures of her, and she barely seemed to have aged, and she clearly did so much with her short time in this world. I am so very sorry for your loss, and my brother, Elie (Keith), and I send you our deepest condolences. Baruch dayan ha'emet. May you and your family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.

Dear Stephanie,
I am grateful and happy to have met you numerous years ago through AHAF. You were always an inspiration to me in your knowledge of handwriting analysis. As the treasurer of AHAF, and the AHAF Online Chapter, you did a superb job and handled it well. It was lovely to know you as the lady you were. Having been raised well, you shared your upbringing with me. Something, we both liked to talk about and had in common. You were very happy and blessed in that way, not to mention with the love you had and shared with your husband and children.

May God continue to be with you and your family, now and always.
Peace and Love,

So sorry for your loss. Stephanie was always such a bright light. Meeting her while our boys were in preschool was such a wonderful treat. She was so thoughtful and caring. I always enjoyed our time together planning family Shabbos dinners and class activities.
It was a honor to know her.
May her memory be forever a blessing to all who loved her.

This news saddens my heart. It has been a long time since I have seen Stephanie or the rest of her siblings but my memories from Habonim are strong and I’m still connected with Jeff. Jeff, Cheryl, Dana, and Richard, I love you all so much and my heart just breaks. Stephanie was always such a bright light . I was her madracha also when she was in Amelim and we had so much fun confusing people with having the same last name. We were never able to find an actual connection but I always have thought of you all as family. Sending love and strength.

Stephanie believed in doing her part, and she served AHAF well as the treasurer (a time consuming job), She was also treasurer for the online chapter. I recall that she wasn't afraid to speak up in board meetings when she felt it was called for, one of the many things I appreciated about her. She will be long remembered and missed. My condolences to Aaron, Ariel, Elisha, and all the family. May you find support in each other, and be comforted by good memories.

I am blessed to have had Stephanie in my life for over 30 years. Stephanie was a wonderful friend and person, who brought so much goodness into the world. Stephanie had a unique gentleness and kindness that is rare to find in people, and I truly admired Stephanie's personality. When I met Stephanie at UIC, and through the Hillel, Stephanie and I just gelled , and I always enjoyed being around her and her family. Stephanie was a lot of fun to be around, and I would always enjoy our talks and laughter together, and I am lucky to have special memories and stories of the milestones that we celebrated together.

My heart is broken, and I am deeply saddened. Stephanie's passing is an immense loss, and my thoughts and prayers go out to Aaron, Ariel, Elisha, Jeffrey, Dana, and Richard, and the entire family.

May you rest in eternal peace, lovely Stephanie, and thank you for all of the good times that we shared together, and for our friendship. I will miss you.

Sending love and strength to the entire family, and heartfelt condolences.

May Stephanie's memory forever be a blessing.

With love from,

My deepest condolences to Stephanie's family. Stephanie was a wonderful contributor and colleague of mine with the American Association of Handwriting Analysts. Her participation in person at meetings with our Northern Illinois study group as well as in our on-line Zoom sessions enriched us all. It was a great pleasure knowing Stephanie. She will be profoundly missed and remembered by those who, by the grace of G_d, shared her companionship. David

To Dana and Richard and all of Stephanie's family,

I am so sorry to learn of Stephanie's passing. Ever since we moved near your old home on Ridgewood, and through countless years of carpool, and as neighbors and classmates, I was always touched by Stephanie's kindness and warmth.

I am deeply saddened by her death and am certain that her memory will be a blessing for her family and friends.
