Tender thoughts are with you, dear cousins. We all know the heartbreak you feel. I posted an old photo of the Stenerson siblings….a band of rascals, except for that two year old! It was taken in December of 1928.

Terri, I'm so sorry. Your father sounded like a great man. If he was anything like you, he must have been an angel. I love you and miss you. Take care as much as you can....

Hello Stenerson Family. Not sure if any of you will remember me but I am Fern Mattson's nephew Stuart. I remember your parents very fondly. The last time I came to Belvidere and sang at the Evangelical Church I can still see your Mother making her way to greet me. I also remember your Father. They are all together now. Sincerely, Stuart Jean Mattson
