Sad that too many of our classmates are no longer with us and that I probably had no clue how special they were [sorry for the bad sentence construction -- not one of my strengths].  I had known Stuart since elementary school and we landed on the same floor at U Penn freshman year in college.  While I knew him during our time throughout life at Edgemont, I did not really know Stuart at all during elementary school, junior high school and high school -- not a big surprise -- pretty sure most of us did not know how special each of us in fact were -- Stuart was an AMAZING person.  He could have changed (and for a few people did change) the world.  I did get to know Stuart at Penn and he was one of the GREAT people on the planet and I miss him ALL OF THE TIME.  My life changed when Stuart passed.

Stuart's friend for life,

Stuart was the first Edgemonter I met when I came as a freshman in 1968. School was already in session. I think it was late October. I'm in Mr. Engle's office getting oriented and he sent for Stuart to walk me to class. I remember those initial, insecure steps into a new school like it was yesterday, as Stuart walked me down the stairs, past the cafeteria, and out into the breezeway. I'm sure I looked like a hoodlum to Stuart with my scruffy hair and in my black leather jacket. However, Stuart was friendly, kind and gracious. Later on I got to learn just how smart and funny he also was. Stuart was a class act. I know many of us miss him dearly. We love ya Stu!!!!

I was in complete shock when I heard of Stuart's passing from a kayak incident in Africa. It was hard for me to fathom since Stuart and I were great friends at EHS. He was one of the brightest minds and friendliest people I knew. We were classmates, study buddies, track runners, after school friends (great parents), and we roomed together when on the road for a track meet. A fond memory I have of him is this: The 3 Soff brothers, Steve Bruce and I spent an awesome week at Cape Cod in a rented cottage. God bless him.
