    To the family of Stephanie… My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. I have just recently lost a loved one and I know the words “I’m sorry for your loss” do not really help. But I also know that it isn’t the words that mean so much as what is behind them. People do really care and it is hard to help someone at a time like this as the wound is too raw and open. There is no reason for things like this to happen, they just do, he must have a plan for our angels.Please know that everyone who worked with Stephanie is feeling the loss also. Stephanie was good at her job and wanted everything just right. There was no room for error. There is going to be a very big void at Lowes for a long time. May God bless all of you at this time for the terrible tradgey and loss of your loved one.

    Christian and Family- I’m sorry to hear of your loss, as a former employee of Lowes I only knew steph for a short time, but in that short time you could see that she was a kind and caring person, She will be missed by all. It is hard to lose a loved one, but as a family stay strong and remeber the good times you all shared. God Bless.

    To the family of Stephanie Ives: I didn’t know Stephanie. However, her father is one of my best friends. And, knowing Jim as I do, I know that he is hurting very much, as I’m sure the rest of Stephanie’s family is hurting. So, I just wanted all of you to know that we, my husband Dave and I, will do our best to take care of Jim in his time of mourning.

    My deepest sympathy to Stephanie’s family. I was a high school classmate of hers; we were even cheerleaders together. I remember her laugh. She was a very friendly and upbeat person. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    It is difficult to express how we feel in times like this. While we never met Stephanie, her father Jim is one of the real good guys in this world. We love you Jim and it is with our deepest sympathy that we send our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

    Even though we did’nt know Stephanie. Jim her father is a dear friend to us.Everytime Jim spoke of her or shared stories about her with us, you could feel the love he had for her.The bond they shared as daddy and daughter is something most of us could only wish for in our lifes.There is such true sadness when a parent loses a child. There are no words that can describe the deep sympathy we hold for your family.Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    My deepest sympathy to the Ives and Schlecta Families. I never had the pleasure of meeting Stephanie, but thru the loving stories from her father, my friend Jim, I was able to be a small part of her life. You are in my thoughts thru this very difficult time. All my love.
