Not sure what to say?

Papa will be remembered for many things ...among those being a wonderful grandfather. Also, thank you for being the best father in law I could ask for! Rest In Peace. Love, Meredith

As the father of one of my very best friends, I got to know and admire Dick through Joe. It was easy to see how Joe got his quick wit and extraordinary sense of humor. I enjoyed kidding with Dick about his Patriots (back in the early 80s); now look who's got the last laugh!

Rest in peace, Dick Stewart.

All those years at the Courier. It was fun
