A few months have passed since your transition from this life, but in this moment, I have to once again offer a word of gratitude. As I sit at this computer and type this message, I remain amazed how well may fingers know the keyboard, a skill that was born in your classroom at Roosevelt. I think I once told you how my mind could not pass a keyboard test, but my fingers have not skipped a beat and for that, I thank you. So, you remain very present in my life everyday and I just had to share that. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Your light still shines brightly!!!

Boy, do I have fond memories of Ms. Thompson-Stewart. Not only was she a great teacher but a co- sponsor to the award winning ROTC department. She and Sarge made it happen. Rest well, your work is done.

Mrs. Stewart was one of my teachers for keyboarding. It's because of her I know how to type without looking at my hands.

I’ve known Mrs. Doris Thomson-Stewart for almost 50 years. She was a second Mom to me. My own Mom agreed and appreciated her extra set of hands and her heart towards me.

Mrs. Thomson-Stewart and “Sarge” were my second set of parents. The two of them helped to bring out the best in me. They taught me to have confidence in myself and my decisions. They were there for me in the best of times and in the most difficult of times. They provided unconditional love.

Mrs. Thompson-Stewart and “Sarge” took great interest in my career and my personal life. They helped me to find courage when I had little to none.

Mrs. Thomson-Stewart and “Sarge” made me feel as though I was their only child. Even though, there is overwhelming evidence that they made so many others feel the exact same way. They shall be known and remembered by their fruit.

And even now, may the peace of God that passes all understanding, keep the hearts and minds of “Sarge” and every family member friend and associate, through Christ Jesus.

May God heal our hearts as we thank God for the Life of Mrs. Doris Thompson-Stewart.

My high school typing teacher at Gary Roosevelt and life long friend ever since. Thank you for introducing me to “pica” and “elite”, something we’d often laugh about. How special it was having you and Sgt Stewart at many of our class reunions including our most recent in 2019. Blessings to you Sgt Stewart and to the family in this season of transition and ultimately celebration of the life of one who was dearly loved. To God be the Glory.
