We will miss our many "happy hours" with Stew (seated in his favorite chair near the fireplace) and Nancy where we solved just about all the problems of the world and had many laughs while doing so. Our sincere condolences to the entire family.

I come from a small family so I didn't know what to expect the first time I met Grandpa Bud, Nanny, all Sue's cousins and the rest of the family. It was the summer of 1981 and I had just graduated from college. When I pulled up in front of Grandpa Bud and Nanny's home on the Elk River and was told by Grandpa Bud not to worry and leave my keys in the car (unlocked?), I knew I was somewhere special. Treated like a family member before I became one, it was pretty easy for me to see where Sue got her smarts and her charm. When Stewart and Nancy took me sailing for the first time and there was no wind and no sailing to be had, Stewart and Nancy just talked with me for hours. Quite an interesting pair I thought and my feelings didn't change in 30+ years. Thanks for teaching me me to eat crabs the right way and thanks for teaching my kids to fish. Most importantly, thanks for Suzie. Love, Jon

Dear Nancy and Family, Please accept our sincere condolences. If there is anything that we can do to help, please let us know. We will say a special prayer for Stewart while we are in Ireland as we remember both of you being with us-there. Sincerely, Ann & Wayne Hill

Thanks for sharing the recent anniversary pictures. There are so many fond and funny memories of our childhood. Uncle Bud was a kind soul, like his mother Pauline. Love and prayers to my cousins and Aunt Nancy. Brad (and Penny).
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
