Fond memories of happy times w/ Yvonne and numerous "new" friends through the Racquet Club . There was always a smile on her face, being mischevious or happy. So many precious thoughts when I learned of her passing. RiP MY FRIEND.

I lived a few houses from the Stephenson family when I was a child and would occasionally ride my bicycle to their house to visit Alan. Mrs. Stephenson was always welcoming and very gracious. She was a lovely, charming woman with a smile beyond compare. My memories of her have never faded and I am so grateful to have known her.

Mrs Stephenson was a great influence on my life. She and her husband Jim were instrumental in my Spiritual growth as well as showing me how to treat people and how to be apart of a group. She
always had a positive attitude and during those difficult teen years she believed in me and was always an encouragement. She was a great person!
