Dear Brian, Jo-Ann, Melanie and families. I grew up in Goffs where your Dad was from. My sister, Alma, was previously married to your Uncle Granville and for a time I lived next door to your grandparents, Bob and Margaret. Your family and mine were always close and I've had the honor of calling them my friends and the pleasure of spending time with all of them. Both your Mom and Dad were such kind and caring people - just simply wonderful. And I know their family was the most important thing in their lives. I was so saddened to hear of your dad's passing. You have had more than your share of grief and sorrow this last few years. My deepest sympathy and condolences to all of you. Sincerely Debbie Burns

I have known Stewart for many years and have never met such a genuinely kind man. He was a very positive person and always had a smile on. He was a great carpenter and had built me a gazebo which we use regularly and now will remember him often. He will be greatly missed. Our heart felt condolences go out to his family. Dave and Erin Brown
