Steven Vincent Funeral Information

The following is from Lisa Ramaci, Steven Vincent’s wife.

Allow me to begin by saying how grateful and deeply touched I am by the many people who have called, emailed, written or otherwise contacted me to tell me how sorry they were about Steven’s death, and offering their help in what is a very difficult time. I am truly blessed to have such caring, loving friends, family and even acquaintances whom I have not yet had the privilege of meeting, and your concern has helped me in more than one dark hour. Thank you so very much. I hope you understand that, at this point, due to the sheer volume of contact and all the details I had to arrange, I have not been able to respond to each of you personally, but when this is all over and I have some time on my hands, I fully intend to do so. But you are in my thoughts.

I wanted to give those of you who are interested the information regarding this weekend’s wake and the funeral following. Steven will be waked Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14, at:

Peter Jarema Funeral Home

129 East 7th Street

between 1st Avenue and to Avenue A

2-5 and 7-9 each day

For those of you driving, the north side of the street that the funeral home is on has lots of reserved spaces; just make sure to go in and, right by the door, pick up a FUNERAL tag for your car so you don’t get ticketed.

The funeral service will be held Monday morning, 9:30 AM, at Middle Collegiate Church, on the southeast corner of 7th Street and 2nd Avenue. This is the church Steven and I were married in, and I think it only appropriate to close the circle by having the service there. It will be open to anyone who wants to attend.

Following the church service, Steven will be buried in a private ceremony at Green-Wood Cemetary in Brooklyn. If anyone unable to attend would like a prayer card, please e me your address and I will send one to you.

I will be planning a memorial service for Steven, to occur some time in mid-September. I am also going to begin exploring the possibility of creating a foundation in his honor, but that must be for different days.

Thank you all again for your support and love; I will never be fully able to tell you how much it means to me. Steven was proud to call you his friends, and so am I.

And please feel free to forward this email to anyone you think might want to receive it.

Please know that you do not have to carry the burden of this all on yourself, and that you can rely on your Lightstalkers community to help in any way we can. Though many of us fear exactly this in our own lives, fewer still can ever truly understand what it is that you are going through at this moment. I never met Steven, and only read precious little about him since his death, but know that doing what he was, when he was, makes him a true believer. Thank you for the promise to keep his voice alive, and know that if you need any help, a forum perhaps, by all means just ask and we will do whatever we can.

Dear Lisa:

I didn’t know Steven, but I have seen and read about his type before. It is a rare few men who have the conviction and raw courage to help others achieve freedom in their lives while knowing full well that your risking your own life in the process. Especially when those who oppose freedom, do so with such evil cowardess.

We will always be greatful to you and Steven for the sacrifices you have both made and the lessons we’ve learned about strength and conviction through your lives.

Thank you
