    My deepest sympathy to the Laing family in the passing of Stew. I have awesome memories of showing Saddlebred horses with him years ago, in fact our horses were sisters. Stewart was a lot of fun and I recall him serving us horseshow breakfasts of orange juice and oreos, he had a great sense of fun and was very supportive to all of us. He was a good man and the world is a sadder place without him. I wish you all peace and that you can take comfort in all the happy memories you shared.

    Annie, Megan and Stephanie, I am so sad to hear of Stew’s passing. There are so many wonderful memories of Stew and his fabulous sense of humor from when we all showed horses together. I thought he was the funniest guy ever, especially when you put him with Rob and John! Later, it was a joy to be able to teach your girls a few riding lessons at Bridleridge. How time flies by. My deepest condolences for your loss. He will be lovingly be remembered by all. God Bless to your and your family.
