So sorry to have Stu sick and then ... He was a valuable member of the "counting" group with me as well as the fair, etc. etc. etc.
If there is anything ...

We have had so many good times with Stu, Charlene and their family over the years. Taking trips to Disney World, Maine and Cape Cod. Also going to old car shows and playing tennis and golf together. When golfing I think Stu and Bazil would have a contest to see who could hit their golf ball the furthest into the woods.
We miss him so much already. Arlington won’t be the same for us without him.
Our thoughts are with Charlene and her wonderful family during this difficult time. Love, Bazil & Maureen

Stu was so great to be around - cheerful, enthusiastic and always funny. We have so many good memories, especially Christmas and Thanksgiving with Stu and all of you. I know he will live in our memories.
