John you were an amazing man. Kind, wise and compassionate in your role as Bishop. I always enjoyed your talks from the pulpit, as you spoke from life’s experiences from following the counsel of our leaders and from studying the scriptures. You were a wonderful friend who dealt with adversity with courage and dignity. There is much to be admired of John Stephens. Gone too soon❤️
