Uncle Stewart was such an important part of our lives. I remember the fun 4th of July get togethers. We kids always had games to play and Uncle Stewart was always right there with us. Roasting marshmellows in the evening and catching lightening bugs. He made things fun for us AND made us laugh. His trains that he would set up for Christmas were so wonderful. He loved making all of us happy and amazed. Living just down the path from Uncle Stewart and Aunt Charlotte made for such a close knit family. When mommy was in the hospital, Uncle Stewart would take us to the park to swing and have fun. Thank you Uncle Stewart for being such a wonderful part of our lives. I LOVE YOU, Cathy
