Hello Mrs. Stewart, Ms. Rhonda, Meredith, and family: I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Mr. Stewart is such a sweet man, and I will always remember riding by your house seeing him watering his plants. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Dear Aunt Dot, Rhonda, and Meredith, I was so very sorry to hear of your loss. Uncle D was a Good Christian Man that loved God and his family. He was always kind and so fun to be around. He really will be missed around Greensboro. I remember him carrying the mail when I was a little girl and he came by my Grandparents house on Saturdays. Also, seeing him cutting the grass and looking after those famous banana trees that he was so great at raising. If I can do anything for you at any time please let me know. I pray that our Heavenly Father will comfort you in the days and weeks to come. I know I depend greatly on him since I lost my Daddy 9 months ago. Just trust in him and he will see you through this most difficult time. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU! Love, Pam
