On June 9th, I had the tremendous experience of seeing the world that I shared with my husband Stephan come together – past, present and future. It was the First Annual Stephan Weiss Apple Awards, which was an evening that was created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Stephan’s passing. It was a celebration of Stephan’s live and an evening that honored three very special guests: President Bill Clinton, Dr. Mehmet Oz, and Courtney Sale Ross. It was more extraordinary than I could’ve imagined and the most fitting tribute to my husband, my soul mate, and my partner in life.
I know Stephan was there with me last night. There is no question in my mind. Right before the event, the skies opened, the thunder boomed, and a storm rushed in. It was the most extraordinary outburst – and I knew that it was Stephan. We used to call Stephan “storm.” And, what happened last night was just as it was ten years ago when a very similar storm struck just as Stephan passed. Stephan is always with me, but last night, he was there with us all.Learn More
