Jackie I am so sorry for your loss. I loved working with you and Leroy and of course Pat in the jewelry store.. It was a very happy and fun time for me. I also appreciated how fair and trusting you were. I remember you children as school age kids. I am sure they are much comfort to you. I am sending good thoughts and blessings your way.

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of Mr. Stephenson and the Stephenson Jewelry store (from class ring, first promise to wedding rings and then a mother's ring to a beautiful custom designed necklace). May you feel the peace and love of God that comforts at times such as this. He will always remain in your hearts, and live on with your memories and stories shared for generations to come. Leroy Stephenson has certainly left a legacy for his family, friends and customers. You are all in my prayers.
