Dear Stephens Family, I'm so sorry to hear of Carl Eugene's passing. Our families were neighbors most of our lives then went on to get to know your children and grandchildren through the years. Many good memories of the Stephens family and times together at Davis Prairie Church. May God comfort you and hold you in the palm of His hand. God bless you all.

So many memories. Sunday afternoon visits at the home place with all families for Sunday dinner. Carl Eugene, Sylvia, Raymond, & Louise all together with their mom & dad. The family all working together to have a successful farm. I could go on and on. Carl Eugene loved his family & will be greatly missed. So long cousin for just awhile. My condolences to his children and grandchildren.
