    Stoney went to school with my little brother, Buddy (John Williams). We have all stayed friends through the years. When I learned last year that he had cancer, it just broke my heart. I came to Nashville last summer and had lunch one Saturday with him. I knew it was just to say goodbye and it was so hard to do. But I talked to him and he seemed to be at peace with himself. He said he had had a good life and had a lot of fun and he was glad that he had time to get his affairs in order. It was so sad to hear but I am so glad I got to meet with him that day. I admired his courage so much. The world has lost a good, sweet soul and he will be sorely missed by all who loved him. May you rest in peace, friend. You are much loved and missed. We will all meet again someday and then the laughter will never end.

    I meet Stoney in 1974, as he was one of my husbands best friends and brother. I will never forget in the late 70’s, Stoney worked at Dupont and I lived 1 block from his work. He would stop by and check on me and my son, to be sure we were ok. He was a barrell of laughs and fun. He always put a smile on my face. When he learned he had cancer, it was devastating to me and my family. He took it with a grain of salt and carried on just like he always did, with a big smile…..From Jan to May of 2012, Steve came to my office each morning to juice with me and drink coffee. I will always cherish those memories. I love you so much Steve, and thank you for being my friend.
