Lighting a candle for Stephie

Bay Village tonight mourns the passing of 7-year-old Stephanie "Stephie" Lufkin. She was a first-grader at Normandy Elementary and the daughter of Bay Middle School sixth-grade teacher Katie Lufkin and her husband, Doug. Her Aunt Kelly is a photographer and has been capturing photos posted on flickr for the past few days that will break your heart.

Here's the obit on Stephie's grandmother and children's author Sara Holbrook's blog.

We're holding our children a little tighter tonight.

I am just so sorry. Life itself is luck, so many things that have to go right, and only one, even the tiniest, that might go wrong, can end it, without understanding why.

Thoughts and prayers to Stephie's friends and family. Thank you for posting.
