    I was Richard’s caregiver for over a year. I considered him a friend, he was always very kind to me. I will miss him. Prayers to his family.

  2. I knew Mr. Stuart from renting the store on the corner. He was the most kindest man. In winter when the gas bill went up he would tell me to reduce the rent. Some times I had to, when it got to hard to make ends meet and I couldn’t make it he offered to reduce rent. It me me feel very good , but didn’t want to take advantage.
    I think he enjoyed the store being there, I could hear him working upstairs.
    Sorry I missed his service, I met you once at the store. He lead a very accomplished life. Sorry for lost
    Sincerely Bonnie Goehring
