  2. Beautiful Mrs.Nancy…. To have met you was a pleasure. I love you and will forever miss you dearly. You brought warmth with your smile and endless conversations. I’m glad I got to see you to say I love you and hear your voice one last time. I thank Judy and Trudy for allowing us at Village to be apart of this journey in your mom’s time of need. I pray peace, love and comfort to the family in your time of grief. To have known her was to love truly love her so I know the family is missing her dearly. They say to be absent of the body is to be present with the Lord so I thank God for allowing the use of his angel on earth and now for her watching over all in heaven. My love, sympathy and prayers to you all. 💜 ~MiMi

    • Hi Mimi,

      I did nto get to meet you in person but I am so grateful for all the love and care shown to Momma. You were truly one of her Angels.

      Thank you so very much,

  3. Dear Stewart Family: Our hearts are heavy with the passing of your Mom. I’ve known your family since we moved onto Agnes Street when Trudy and I were both just four years old! I’m so glad your Mom got to meet my kids in 2008. Your family is a vital piece of my history and I take comfort in knowing our parents are neighbors again in Heaven. Mrs. Stewart was a hard working woman and Mother and set a fine example as how to work outside the home and raise a family during a time when that wasn’t commonplace. I can hear your Dad saying, “Hey Catfish – what took you so long to get here, I’ve been waiting for you!” Mrs. Stewart: from the bottom of my heart, I’d like to say “thank you, I’ll miss you and please give my parents a hug from me”. Love from the Mier Family in California (Naomi, Frank, Austin and Mariah)
