Not sure what to say?

Momma, I miss you so much. Losing you has been too hard to bear, especially so soon after losing daddy. I know you are no longer in pain & you are now in your "new home"... sitting at the Master's feet. I am so sorry you had to suffer so much with such a sudden illness, it was so heartbreaking. I know the Lord sent His best angels to carry you home to Glory. Heaven surely is more beautiful with you there...and oh there must have been such rejoicing when you entered those gates!...

July 20, 2013 was a day of rejoicing in Heaven, but a sad day on earth for everyone who knew Mother Stuart. I have had the pleasure of knowing her for about 8 years. I was her "official chauffeur" for 4 years. I took her to church twice a week, to various doctors' appointments and to the local Goodwill quite often. Usually a trip to Wendy's would follow those trips! I would often joke with her about the Goodwill, telling her she couldn't buy anymore pots!
A great void has been...

I had the privilege of caring for and spending time with this wonderful lady for the last few months of her life. She was, indeed, a very special and Godly women, and I will always remember her. May she rest in peace.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

I have so many wonderful memories of Sis. Stuart. I sat in Sunday School teacher training classes under her; I served with her in Women's Ministries. But fondest of all are my memories of the many trips we took together - to Feast of Ingathering, to General Conference CE Convention and on to Gatlinburg, and to Grand Ole Gospel Reunion in SC. She was an inspiration and a dear friend. I'm so sorry I was out of state and could not attend her funeral. My sincere condolences to Miriam and...

I had the opportunity of meeting Mr. & Mrs. Stuart in the early 90's while traveling with the Emmanuel College Singers. Now, after being in the ministry for 15 years I still hold the Stuarts in high regard. They were two of the most warm and gracious souls ever. I am blessed to have had the chance to stay in their home on multiple occasions. Heaven is a better place with them there. They will always be GIANTS of the faith.

Miriam, Leon & Joel,
Sorry I couldn't be with you at this sad time, but I'm praying our heavenly Father will comfort you as only He can. Your mom always had a special place in my heart. She was a blessing to me and all the people she encountered. Love, Pat
