"My heart is very heavy. My cousin who use to work with me at Gainesville Health and Fitness lost his wife. John Bloom was a floor instructor and his future wife Stephanie Strickland a receptionist when they met. They went on to be married and had two children age 5 and 2 with the 3rd child being born late last week. Stephanie was in her early 30’s. While we don’t know exactly what happened yet I can tell you we are all stunned, shocked and devastated. Say a prayer and keep John in your thoughts and prayers as well as his three children during this very difficult time. Thoughts and prayers for our entire family are much appreciated. Stephanie was a daughter, sister, daughter in law, sister in law, friend, wife, mother and so many other things loved by many. May God bless you Stephanie and may God protect John and the three children along with the rest of the family during this very difficult time. Rest In Peace!"
