    Sandie, Kassi, Cody and Kenda, I’m so terribly sorry for your loss. I was so sad to hear the news of Truman’s passing and I wish I could be there to share in your pain. I practically grew up in his household and have so many memories there with the Stephenson family. Thank you Truman for welcoming me into your home and for giving me the most wonderful friend and sister, Kassi. RIP Truman.
