"We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.

Sadly missed along life’s way,
quietly remembered every day.
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you’re always there.

Love you much

"My dear  brother Stu,
Today is 45 long years that you left us for your eternal Home. I have grieved for you a long time. Thanks be to God for your other sister to give us closure. On August 15,2015 we had a Memorial and dedication in your honor. We went to the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park your family,friends and Westside Gazette Newspaper. A bench with a plaque  was dedicated in memory of you. It was an emotional event for me. I  read the police report and the details. I felt a little relief knowing people jumped in to try to save you. Hearing Denise saying how happy you were before you fell. She tried to hold you but she couldn't. I can say waiting 43 years was a long time but well worth it."

"My brother and friend, I enjoyed the short time we had. You were a blessing, someone everyone would want to have for a brother. Smart looking out for us. We had lots of fun times growing up. Lots of family outings, the fair, circus, family reunions.I remember the beach buggy, and Dania Beach. Our trips down town on the city bus. I thank you so much for coming out in the deep rescuing me when I was drifting further than I realized. I know that God was with us.You were the best brother a person could ask for. I think of you every day of my life, how sorry I am I was not there for you. We never argued or had a fight, you were older, wiser. Bless the times we had. I often said if I picked you upvfrom practice I would not have taken you to the park. I say that it hurt more than words can express to come to school to take a test and hear what happened to you. Never got over.You knew the Lord and I pray you are resting in paradise with Daddy and the rest of the family.
I will always love you. You will always be in my heart.♡♥♡.

"Remembering my oldest 1st cousin on my dads side. Stu was everyone's friend and "father figure". I remember playing hide n seek. He or my brother Dave climbed in the ceiling somehow and it fell. He never did anything wrong. I'd say he was aunt Reather s golden child. Truly missed."
