Sincerest sympathy to all the Stewart family for your great loss of David, it was a shock and a great sadness to hear of his passing. I remember a dear and very loving family so I know it has hit you all hard. Think what great happiness Yvonne and David will be experiencing now that they are back together again. He has surely missed his precious love so much since she left on her next journey. God give you all the strength to cope with your unhappiness at this sad time.

Dad, you left us quietly and peacefully which was how you would have preferred if. I will always carry memories of a very complex, intelligent and humorous papa bear. You loved me unconditionally, encouraging and offering wise counsel when I asked for it. I have so many memories of my childhood with you, songs, friends, the shed, then your transformation into a beautiful Christian man. You and mum showed us all how to be kind, loving and gracious to all who crossed your path.May 3, 2021
You missed your family back home in Northern Ireland and shared many memories with us – I will eventually get there and see if all for myself.
Thank you for always being there, loving myself, Jason, Joel and Rhys and then Kaylah and little Finlay.
I have great sadness that I never got to say goodbye but I am glad you are reunited with mum in Heavens beautiful gardens.
I am blessed you were my da.. until we meet again I will never stop loving you and smiling as I think of all we shared.
Love you to the Moon and back again
Catherine, and Jason xxxxxx
