As you know, I and all of you, lost a friend and I, a brother last year. It has been a year and one, that I am glad to see come and go. Would you all please raise a glass of whatever you may have and remember the fun, and love that my dear brother had. Some of you had the chance of meeting him and have the wonderful memeories of your meeting no matter how short or long they were. I, myself, was hit with a double whammy. On the 11th, was the 16th anniversary of loosing Gary. He was our middle brother. This is all new for me. I sat with Garys ashes and held his urn and cried and talked to him as I will with Stuart's ashes. But I also have memories of both of my brothers. My heart breaks but I know that even though I've not met all of you, you're part of my family. May all of you be blessed in your life and know that Stu is looking down on all of us. Love you all. Missy(Emily)
So sorry for your loss and the pain you are feeling. I had the pleasure of meeting Stuie on 2 separate occasions. He was something else. My heart and sympathies go out to you.
Got to meet him once... Hard to believe it's been a year already.....
Thought you might like to know we toasted Stuie in our 'empty chair'. Folks asked 'who's Stuie' 'A very good friend from across the pond I says' They say the pain eases in time but if it helps Emily read the thread( I think that's what you call it) 'An empty chair'. Try it, it does help a little love. Godbless you and yours
I thank you for your kind words and ta for the toast. What I did though, was to touch his ashes and I went to You Tube. I sat here and smiled,cried, and laugh. I also lit a candle. The candle was for both of me brothers. I'm just glad it's over. Funny that you mentioned an empty chair. There is one of those plastic ones sitting at the side window of the living room. And when Stu came to visit 3 years ago this summer, he sat there. I can still see him. :). Love you too, Colin. Emily
In Spirit IF NOT in Person.
He is part of the Forums,
"WAS AND FOREVER WILL BE"
Hang in there Emily
I'm doing better. I went to watch Stu on You Tube and I touched his ashes and it felt ok. Ta for your words and friendship. Emily
be ever so kind to post a link to the youtube you mentioned? I would so love to see it. I saw one quite awhile back and so enjoyed getting to "see" him again.
Hey Mouse, What I do is, I just go to You Tube and put his name in the search bar. When I want to see him again and hear that funny laugh he had, that is what I do. Just put his name in the search bar and you will see him there.. :)
Thanks for the suggestion :D
what is the correct name spelling??
I tried a few different ways to spell his name even though I knew they weren't right.
Thank you YB for trying to help me.
Stuart Brandt. Not Stewart. Maybe that is what you guys were putting in? Anyway, it's Stuart Brandt. Let me know if you got to see the old man. :)
all this time Stuie was spellin his first name wrong!!!!!!!
Typical Lab Rat
Thanks Emily! NOW I remember that! ;)
My dear... Stuie was a nick name for Stuart. Or Stu is a nick name. He used them all. You are a goof ball. Like what I say, When in doubt, check it out. Never hurts to ask.. :P ;)
Glad to help out. :D
Just watched it again, had watched it so many times right after he died...made me cry...again. God bless you for helping us to be able to "see" him again! You had an awesome brother!
he was a good friend to me. emails and support from him blessed my heart and life. we had hoped to meet that summer but time is short and I cried when i heard. I miss him and his emails. God bless you Emily
