I have known Stu and his family since Mercer. Stu was a good friend and fun to be with. We had lost contact for a number of years and then reconnected at, of all places, his sister Kim's funeral. We kept in touch regularly and although Stu was suffering with AIDS he was almost always interested in his friends lives.

Stu I will always remember your friendship your family our card games and especially that New Years party. Rest well and without pain my dear friend.
