We have lost a friend, but God gained an Angel"
We will see you in Paradise, take care and watch over us forever, as we will think of you every spare moment and know that you had brightened our days forever.
Tribute created by:
I did not personally know Stefanie Rengel. I met her in the pages of The Star at New Years 2008. I am the mother of a beautiful young girl, a child I was once told I could never have, who shows some of the spunk and warmth I feel when I look at these photos of Stefanie. God Bless Stefanie and those left here to mourn a beautiful and loving soul. My heart aches for Stefanie and her family. Seeing her mum now, doing her best to carry on and enjoy her children and live her life; her brother so devastated by the loss of his sister,his friend and mentor;her fathers, and her other mum, all supporting each other, coping in a way the Stefanie herself I'm sure is happy to see. I chose the Dolphin icon because my precious daughter, aged 8&1/2 (the 1/2 is very important, you know) loves marine life, and is still not convinced that mermaids do not exist. We see Stefanie as a beautiful mermaid, ready to appear whenever she is needed. My thoughts are with the extended Rengel and Hung families. Mothers and Fathers, hug your children whenever you can. Hug each other while you're at it! And never let a day end without any angry feelings or conflicts still stirring. Put them in perspective and to rest. You'll feel so much better, calmer and balanced, and you will all thrive on your love and from the joy of loving and being loved. . Sincerely, Janet (aged..."Une femme d"un Certain Age) and Maya(aged 8&1/2). Thank You for reading our tribute to Stefanie and her circle of relatives and friends.
My wish for you is that with one trial ending & one soon beginning that your family & friends can finally get some closure to this tragedy. Life will go on, but it will never be the same. May you hold some comfort in knowing your Angel from Heaven has returned and doing great & wonderful things there but will always be watching down with a smile.
My heart & prayers
For you Stefanie i pray for at night. And i think about when the world spins without you being there. I spoke to and looked into your eyes, who knew that those words would be the last time i would ever talk to you again. I wish i could turn back time and warn you, warn you from what was about to happen. But who knew. Who would have known that the morning after New Years, you would be gone forever.
I truly miss you and you will always be in our memories.
All hopes and prayers goes out to the family and all of her friends.
Rest In Peace.
i never knew you and i can;t stop thinking about the horrible way you died. i have 1 son and the thought of losing him in this way would kill me personally. i hope that your family has many fond memories of you even though you were only 14. i hope that the person on trial now and the one that will go on trial later both get the book thrown at them. you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers daily mayou rest in peace
Aw! Im so sorry this happened! :'( Stephanie must have been a sweet girl. :) and out of random jealousy, she gets killed :'( R.I.P Stephanie. I know you're in a better place now :) <3
I only knew you for 4 months...but you knew how to make me laugh.
Math class was jokeeess :]
You were such an amazing person and I still cannot believe how kind you are.
Even on the first day when i was petrified from high school you came over to me and started talking...even though we had never met. I'm so happy I got to know you and discuss important math stuff [pshh no way]
I'm never gonna forget those little short shorts you always wear :] AND WITH THE LEOPARD PRINT TIGHTS! ahahahaa ohh man
You are truly amazing and have left such an impact on so many peoples lives.
Stefanie- I know our lives crossed paths many times- I played for EY soccer with you and lived only doors away from you. I'm so so so saddened by this tragedy and I know you are safe in heaven now. RIP
Ugh. Still cant believe this happend after so long. it seems like yesterday. when we were young we hung out a little bit. a neighbour across the street was good friends with her, so sometimes we would hang out at the neighbours or my house, playing basketball or catch XD
then i forgot about her for the longest time. and january 1st my sister got a call from her best friend saying that stefanie got killed, me and my two cousins wwere just listening on to my sisters reactions wondering what was going on. then my sister went up to her room and told us. it took me a while to remember who she was but when i found out who i was is shock and couldnt believe it. stefanie looked like a princess in her viewing. that was the first viewing i ever went to. my heart was pounding right out of me.
now i can never forget about her. so i always visit memorial sites for her.
rst in peace angel (l)
i was just thinking about her yesterday;
i wish we could have known each other better.
