Staff writer Linda Blackford wishes Stephenson farewell.

My friend, mentor and colleague celebrated a bittersweet milestone in his career on Friday. He moved on from the staff photographer position at the Lexington Herald-Leader he held for 15 years to work with the University of Kentucky's student newspaper The Kentucky Kernel. His friends and colleagues at the paper were as sad to see him leave as he was to be leaving.
Visuals Editor Ron Garrison spoke words of a man who is respected as a talented photographer, producer and good friend. He will be sorely missed.
