After taking a minute to reflect on the loss of Stu, I remember the streets around Azalea Drive and the times we had there. Stu will be missed by many and while over the years we lost touch, those days in the neighborhood are fond memories. To his family, my deepest condolences and to those of us that remain, let’s try to stay connected, our time here is too precious!
RIP Stu!
