Stephanie gave birth two those beautiful and healthy twins 3 days after his passing on July 14th. We all wish this already tragic story stopped there. It did not though. The twins lost their mother too.
Stephanie developed an infection and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. Like everything Stephanie did in life, she battled hard for 10 days. On July 26th, the almighty also decided to call to heaven another angel. Our Stephanie gained her wings to Heaven sadly leaving her two twin babies behind. However, Jevaughn Jr and Lailah at least had the opportunity to bond with their mother for 4 days before she too was gone.
