Mother and Son called to Heaven


On Monday, October 31st, 2017, Stephanie Wentworth-Miller was called to Heaven.  The very next day, her baby boy, Eli Anthony, was also called to Heaven to be with Stephanie.Just over 2 years ago, Stephanie, and my son, Justin were married at a beach ceremony on Virginia Beach. Stephanie was Justin's true love and best friend.  They were so excited to become first-time parents to baby Eli and had just hosted family and friends at the baby shower one month prior to this tragedy.  Eli's baby room was repainted, furnished, well-stocked and ready for his arrival.Stephanie was born and raised in Oneida, New York.  She attended college in Buffalo, NY. She and her twin sister, Kim, attended a semester of college in Australia.

 Stephanie had recently started a new career as a Realtor and Property Manager at Pyle Realty in Virginia Beach.  She was also an instructor at Curves Fitness Center.  She loved her family, her friends, her four-legged fur babies, the New York Giants and the beach! Fortunately, Stephanie and Eli's actual funeral costs were equally split between Justin's father, Chris, and father-in-law, George.  Thankfully, Justin was not burdened with that entire expense.

However, there are additional life expenses NOT covered.

Funds raised will go towards the annual catastrophic cap for medical expenses for both Stephanie and Eli ($4,000 each), in addition to memorial marker costs ($3,000), other unexpected expenses and lifetime care for Stephanie and Justin's four-legged fur babies: a rescued Rottweiler named Tucker, a rescued black Lab named Onyx, a rescued brown chow-mix love-bug named Lily, and 2 rescued cats, Max and Romeo.
