Stephanie Clark was a remarkable woman that one would remember having met her, with her signature red hair and twinkle in her eye!  She was a self-educated woman who loved to share her opinions in lively discussions and share her lessons she valued to her children as a self-proclaimed teacher.  Her faith and spirituality were very important to her and her interests vast; from Mah-Jong to cards including Texas Hold’em and Pinochle to fishing, from politics to the stock market.  We each have spent memorable times sharing with our mother, I personally will cherish and remember fondly the dining at the Moose Club or the Bonefish or at her favorite restaurant Heidi’s while listening to some jazz music for entertainment.

It is both sad what we will miss after our beloved mother dies, and  yet joyful to think that she no longer suffers and she is in heaven.  I would like to acknowledge that we each have gone through a lot individually with her.  As we all think about our own personal relationship with our mother, we all have our unique stories and intimacies that make us, her children, her living legacy.  Hopefully at this time we are remembering the good times that brings us all close together in love.
