Carolyn: I was a good friend of Stephanie's at Vassar and had not spoken with her since we graduated. I was so sad to hear of her passing. I knew your parents too. I lived on LI and have a great picture of Stephanie in my dorm room circa 1977 or so. I would love to be in touch with you. If you get this, please let me know how to find you. I tried searching on-line but without luck. My most heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Stephanie and I were great friends for a few years and shared many, many happy times. She was a beautiful, highly intelligent person. I would love to be in touch with you. Alice

What has it got to do with any of you lot anyway.(minus the relatives and friends of course) Who are u to judge? Did u know her personally? No.......... So how do you know what was going on with her life and how does anyone know what was going through her head. Not everybody in the world thinks the same way you do, nobody has any idea how or what she must have been feeling. Nobody, not even her own parents has a right to judge this woman or anybody else in the world for that matter. Where do people get off on passing judgement about other people? What right do you have to do that? Keep your beaky noses to yourselves and let a family grieve

It's been almost a year since Steph's passing. The pain is still raw and fresh. She was as good a friend as anyone can wish for. I sat here on my computer erasing some old emails from last year and came across one from Steph. Thinking of her, I needed to reflect and wanted to reread the obituary. I cannot believe this blog. As a person who always volunteered selflessly, offered help without being solicited and never living life in the limelight, she would have marveled at all of you strangers who spend so much energy in her name. Her only fault was being too kind, giving too much and not taking care of her own needs. Alice: for the last 12 years that I have been a close friend to her, she continued to be an extremely kind, generous, intelligent woman and wonderful mother.

Ang, thank you for your posting. It is good to hear that you were her friend. Even though we knew Steph at different times, I bet we were attracted to the same qualities. She and I spent many nights up talking and laughing and carrying on at Vassar. I looked up to her and loved being with her. She was a great friend. We lost touch and was just so shocked to hear of her passing. I am hoping to be in touch with her sisters now. I hope that your pain is eased over time. It is so hard to lose someone we love.

Jocelyn (and family)
I sent an e-mail to your school. I am hoping that you are still there and it reaches you. I am sorry not have checked this site earlier and seen your message. I just was at Vassar. My son is living in Joss and there are so many memories there. I visited our old room. Please let me know if this reaches you. My e-mail is, [email protected]

Stephanie and I were classmates at London School of Economics and we reconnected when I studied at NYU 1986-89 and she was at the Fed in New York. I just came upon this bit of news only now and by accident and I am devastated to realize that she has gone. Please accept my condolences. I am a professor at a university in the Philippines and I am at Fordham University for this year. My real name is Victor Venida but our group at London knew me by my Filipino nickname Bobing.(My email is [email protected]). Stephanie was very candid, vulnerable, sincere but very kind, generous and always solicitous. She had a ready smile for any occasion. I will miss her. I will pray for her and all you her family.

Trust me I am so close to taking my life to

Beleive me when I tell you this I get told I look like Cameron Diaz, and Michelle Phiefer.

Even a friend asked me in an email do I ever get angry at God that he made me too beautiful that it has been a blessing and curse all in one.

I am in a nightmare in Barbados My ex has my american son and he has down so many human rights violations against me that I can't even count.
Turning off my utilities, the phone, electricity,
taken my car from me.

My mom at 61 died in front of me if this wasn't bad enough.
I was married to a wealthy man and he owes me tons of money in support.
When he turned off my electricity in the beach home I am in I was robbed and beaten in a dark home.

So I have totally flipped out !
Trust me I love my son and I know Stephanie loved her kids with all her heart,
They played on her mind when she did what she did.
Her husband I am reading cheated on her.
She gave him her life and he repays the mother of his children with a younger woman ,
The husband and mistress should be ashamed.
See Divorce is what is causing so much of these tragedies.
Probably the humility of the affair if she was a private person was all she could handle !
She must have been hurting and it is sad because she just had her world the rug pulled from underneath her.
How will her husband be able to look at thier children and not feel shame.
In time , I hope he gets Help and doesn't ever do this.
Marriage and familys are sacred you want a marriage family there are single men and women leave married men/women and the children alone .
When you miss with married people you only cause pain and suffering
Until Death does apart in sickness and in health foresaken all others.
Does anyone take this vows to heart?

I'm amazed that so many of my fellow Avonites care that much about appearances. I don't. I've lived in this area most of my life. I learned to drive on Rt.44 when there were nothing but cornfields and meadows there. Oh, and a Howard Johnsons at the bottom of the mountain. There was Fitzgeralds there too, and one gas station. How things have changed for the worse! This once was a lovely little town with friendly people. Neighbors were considerate and helpful. Well, that's all gone.'The love of money is the root of all evil.' The love of money has corrupted this town.

A truly sad statement and indicative of an overly self-absorbed culture that exists in Avon where keeping appearances even
outranks basic human dignity; in fact seems the only thing (second, of course, to money) that matters there.
Don't you think you should check the facts before writing something so rude and arrogant? How do you know what this woman's life was like? Furthermore, it is simply embarrassing that you have nothing more important to do with your life than to make your presumptuous opinion about matters which who have no knowledge of heard. Also, in case you didn't notice, we are in the 21st century, and it is my personal hope that stereotyping is not as much as an issue. Just because Avon is a upper-middle class town, does not mean that families there don't experience the same problems as families elsewhere. If you want anyone to take you seriously, I suggest that you stop making ignorant comments on matters that you now nothing about.

So if we live in Avon, we aren't subject to failing??You're a judgemental and apparently jealous person.. Grew up in West Htfd.. have lived in Lake Forest, Ill and Greenwich Ct and now back in Avon where as a newly wed I purchased my first home. Where one lives doesn't mean they don't get ill or in this case suffer obviously from depression. IMO, you should be ashamed of yourself judging someone who obviously was a tortured soul who couldn't hang on not realizing the hurt and loss her action would cause.
Even God will or has forgiven her.. How dare you judge ANYONE because of the town they live in?? I am thankful that I do not know you. You are a person with no heart or compassion for another's suffering or human failure!! m.
