      I will always treasure that summer and the fun she had during that time. The team was so accepting of her as a newcomer. I still have the team picture on my wall

    I was some shy kid who was lucky enough to know Steffi, but because of her and a few other people I came out of my shell later on in life and became who I am now. She played a pretty big role in that. I’m very sorry for your loss.

      Thanks, Wendy. She tried her best and I tried my best, too. But the disease had its hooks in her too tightly. She has no more suffering now

    Leslie Steff put up a good fight and was lucky to have such a great mom who was in the fight with her. You were always lifting her up and encouraging her to fight a good fight. I can’t imagine the hole in your heart right now, I hope it fills with all the good memories you and her shared throughout her short life. She is at peace and I hope that brings you some and your family some comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

      Thanks, Rachel. I know we both tried our best but sometimes the disease is just too huge. There’s a song called Dancing in the Sky. That’s what I like to think about now. She’s on both legs dancing

    I am so saddened to hear this. She and I graduated from east together. She was so intelligent, quick witted and just so nice. We ran into one another one night during a call… I didn’t realize she was a paramedic, and myself an EMT. I sure didn’t think that would be the last time I’d see her. I’ll be thinking of you all on this extremely emotional day, and I do apologize for my not coming. I work in an ER and I don’t want to risk getting anyone sick. My god be with you all, and provide you with comfort.

      Thanks, Kayla. Poor Steff suffered and struggled a lot these last three years. I know she’s at peace and has no suffering now

    I’m friends with Jen and her daughters. I’m so sorry for her passing. She sounds like a person who was full of life. Love and Prayers for you Jen and the entire family.
