Susan & Tommy,
I was so sorry to hear about Stewart's passing. We loved Stewart very much and treasure the years he worked with us. He was a hard worker, had a wonderful sense of humor, and was so patient with our children when they were young. I haven't seen Stewart in many years, but I wanted to express my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family at this difficult time. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
With love,
Nancy Williams and Family
(My husband John passed away unexpectedly in April this year)

Tommy & Susan,
When I think of Stewart, I think of a wonderful childhood that he was always a part of. Stewart was a kind, patient man, who always had a smile on his face. He and Martha were like and Aunt & Uncle to me. I've always loved them both. Stewart will truly be missed here, but I know he's rejoicing in Heaven with the rest of his sweet family, who have gone before him.
