Dear Stephenson Family,

I am so sorry for your devastating loss. The entire Cresanti family joins me in sending you our heartfelt condolences. I'm sitting here remembering our early time together. Penny was always an absolute angel and took such great care of those sweet babies and John! I remember our brutal work schedules and long nights on the Hill and Penny always held down the fort, while John was out slaying dragons. We send you all virtual hugs and much love,

Robert and Family
