“Lightning Crashes, an old mother dies – her intentions fall to the floor.

The angel closes her eyes. The confusion that was hers,

belongs now, to the baby down the hall.

Oh now feel it comin back again

like a rollin’ thunder chasing the wind…forces pullin’ from the center of the Earth again.

I can feel it.”

We are told to everything there is a season and a time for every purpose, under heaven. There is comfort in those words, I suppose. What I do know is that heaven has added an angel to its choir, but he will be greatly missed from ours.

He was a noble friend and co-worker,

Loved by all he knew;

Was always helping others,

A life so kind and true.

We shall miss his bright smile,

And his loving ways;

We will live by his example,

For the remainder of our days.

Rest in Peace Dear Friend!

I always remember how Stuart always hated being called Stewey, so we would call him that to get a rise out of him. Then he would give us that Joan Crawford “No Wire Hangers” look to make us stop.

Love you Stuart.

I will always remember the comfort and help you leant to me during a very difficult time in my life. I will remember your smiling face and the fact that you always had kind words to offer and to share. The world has lost a good person, you will be deeply missed.

Stuart was one of a kind. Oh the stories I could tell! I loved singing duets with him, he pushed me to achieve that perfect balance. We fought like cats and dogs at times but, he was always there when I needed him. I loved him dearly and he will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.

To My Dear Friend,

I never thought that I would have to say goodbye to you so soon. The times we shared, vacations week took and lessons you taught me will remain with me for the rest of my life. You truly are a part of me.

Love you always,
