Stuart is my brother. He and I were only 16 months apart in age and we were very close as children. He loved to torment his 3 sisters. A frog in my mouth; snakes, bugs and frogs in my 2 sisters beds; chasing us with lizards. These were his ideas of fun. Books were his best friend.

My heart is sad that he is no longer here. But it also rejoices because he is free of pain and the effects of his stroke.

Be free Stuart. Run in that field again like you've been wanting to do for a long time. Find a shade tree and lay down under it and read to your heart's content. Hug Mom and Dad and everyone else for us. Now that you have crossed over to the other side of life, please pray for us. Rest in peace Stuart and know that we love you always.

My Grandpa was very funny. He would catch bugs for me in jars. He taught me a lot about bugs. He taught me to respect all people, especially veterans. We had some good times and lots of laughs together. I love him very much and I will always remember him and miss him. RIP Grandpa.

Thank you for making me and my boys part of your family. I came to Houston in 2009 and you were my first tenant. From there on you became my boy's Houston grandfather. You were so happy when you found out I was pregnant again, although you wanted me to have a girl, it's actually a boy. I know you are smiling and happy for me and will look out for your new grandbaby. Everytime I will ask, "How are you doing today Stuart?" You will reply with a big smile, "Not as fine as you are!" Lol. I can honestly say that you will forever be missed but I know for a fact that you are doing just fine! The people that love you will always keep your memories alive. Thank you for the good memories and the smiles you brought into our lives. Jayson, Andres, Henry and I love you very much! I am honored to being able to make so many good memories and celebrating your last birthday in my house. We love you Stuart, I know you are in heaven flirting with all those good looking angels and making people laugh. Forever remembered and missed. I love you forever!

I've known Stuart for only a few years. And I say only, because those few years flew by too fast. We actually liked we other, lol. He gave me a place to stay and help if I needed it.He was there for me many times. He was a smart, funny, tough and stubborn old man. And we all will miss him dearly. I'll miss you Stuart.

My memories of Stuart, brings a smile to my heart.
Even tho his speech was slurred from his stroke, he would joke and make people laugh.
He was unselfish, witty, humorous , free spirited, and loved his children unconditionally.
He will be dearly missed.

Stu became part of my life a little over a year ago. We went through a hurricane together. We shared the holidays together. About 2 weeks before his passing, we took a trip to the museum. I pushed Stu in his wheelchair most of the day. When we took him home, he expressed how he enjoyed his day with us. He thanked me for pushing him around. The smile on his face was priceless. A few days later, he told me and Barbara that he had a crush on me. I thought it was the cutest thing. I loved Stu. I will miss him dearly.
