  1. Maybe Glenn Dustin will join. He and Tony Jarman travelled together before.

  2. Always enjoyed being around Stuart. A very kind person. Wish him well and I appreciate his years on the road.

  3. Stuart is a classy guy – I know he will do well in church ministry. In fact, all of the Down East Boys are classy Christian gentlemen, and underrated as a quartet for sure.

    • In a list of the best quartets out there that way too close to everyone just doesn’t know about, they’re right near the top of that list.

  4. We enjoyed hearing his singing at the East Coast Conference in Durham.
