WFMY News 2 spoke with friends of Stephanie Warshauer who are grieving.

"She was totally innocent, totally innocent," Rabbi Fred Guttman of Temple Emanuel said. "Stephanie was a young woman that had lots and lots of friends. She was just filled with smiles, was always upbeat. She had her whole life ahead of her."

Rabbi Guttman has known Stephanie Warshauer most of her life. She was an active member of his Temple. He says that before the crash, Stephanie had spent her Saturday observing Yom Kippur.

"And on the holiest day of the Jewish year, that this would happen is just unbelievable," Rabbi Guttman said. "She spent almost the entire day at Temple on Saturday, including going to a service where we said special prayers for those we've lost. Which in her case was her mother who just recently passed away."

Rabbi Guttman said Stephanie's father lives in Charlotte and is working on plans for a funeral.

"This was a wonderful, wonderful young woman and we will miss her. We are really hurting as a community because we loved her so much," Guttman added.
