Memories Timeline


  1. I will forever be grateful for the time spent with you this past week-end. God bless and keep you all safe in His loving arms. Paula, thank you for always sharing your family with me. I love you as a sister. Love, Debby

  2. Samantha, Steven, Stacey & Stewart Family – My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I have special memories of the times I visited the Stewart home as a kid with Samantha and her family. I always felt love and family unity at their home. Everybody racing in to hold a baby on their laps. Now that I am an adult and can reflect back, I am certain that the atmosphere surrounding the Stewarts and filling their home was the love they had for each other, for their children, grandchildren, and now great-grandchildren, as well as the love they showed to visitors such as myself. I know that you will miss him deeply but I do believe that he and Mrs. Carolyn are now together and looking forward to the day when all of you will be reunited once again at the Big Sunday Dinner Table In The Sky! Much love and sympathy to you all, Shelly Roe
