I am the daughter of Marlin Stephens. He was killed when I was 4 years old. I don't have many memories of him, but my Grandmother, Mother, Aunts and Uncles tell me many stories and share their own memories. I miss him every single day. There are many times when I think about what was taken from us. My wedding day and the births of my two boys. They are often told how much they look and act like him. Rest in Peace Daddy!!
