Stephanie, growing up was wonderful in our family. You are one of the original 1st cousins my dear and unfortunately the first to lead our way to heaven. 😞Coming to visit Aunt Connie and Uncle Gary, Staci and you was definitely one of my highlights of childhood. Watching your Dad drive the John Deere mower and wishing we could get a ride was a classic memory. Steph, I wish we could have visited more often after childhood. My memories of tractor pulls with you, Staci, Uncle Gary, Aunt Connie are vivid and a wonderful memory. Girl you have that Cline beauty inside and out and your legacy will continue with your lovely children❤️will will miss you forever until we meet at the next tractor pull 💕 Sincerely and love you cousin, Donnie

When I was little Steph and I were really good friends. We spent a lot of time in her basement dancing, doing what we called gymnastics, and eating popsicles. We played in Stacy's makeup and tried our hand at cooking and got in a little trouble by Connie for burning chocolate to a pan. We played softball together and just always seemed to have a great time when we were with each other. As life goes we grew apart as we got older but that's ok I will always cherish the fun we had as kids. Stephanie was such a beautiful person inside and out and will be missed by many. My love and prayers go out to her wonderful family. Rest in peace my friend.

My heart hurts for you, Romo and Herd families. I'm so incredibly sorry. Stephanie and I were childhood friends, spending an entire summer playing Monopoly every day! I remember us sketching up in my bedroom, her artwork, of course, much better than mine. She was so incredibly talented. A kind, sweet person, too. Truly a life snuffed out too soon. May God's comfort be your strength during this time. Sending condolences and love. ~ Kristi

My condolences to the Family of Stephanie Herd, I  went to school with  her, there was a time when Lisa Stover had a birthday party along with alot of her friends including Stephanie. I use to whistle with my fingers and at the party I had whistled and then everybody wanted to learn how to do it.So I tried to teach them and stephanie was very adamant about learning how to whistle with her fingers,  I can't  remember if she ever was able to do it but we had a blast,She was a wonderful,kind considerate person and I am so sorry for your loss. May the good Lord wrap his arms around you and help you and her family through this difficult time of loss.
