The Tree of Life that grows with strength and beauty at the left side of the house overlooking the gracious slopes and pond of the Stewart homestead - Cindy called it paradise - there are so many treasured and blessed moments that have been shared in and around that tree which are symbolic of the beauty and strength of a dynamic precious gift to us all - thank you, Cindy, for welcoming me into the great beauty of your life - our time together precious. With love and gratitude always,
Rosemary

What a great woman and mother! I have fond childhood memories of hanging out at the Stewart's house - purposely showing up during breakfast and I was always fed! I'm a better person for knowing you Cindy Stewart! - Ethan Froese

I love Cindy Stewart and I am so grateful that she was my mother-in-law. I loved every minute of spending time with her and cherished her kindness, sincerity, goodness, generosity, humor, and giving spirit. She was a wonderful and loving grandmother and so proud of each of her children and grandchildren.
