Deacon Stewart was always a kind soul. He always let my family know he was OUR deacon and to let him know if we ever needed anything. He will truly be missed. Sending love and prayers to his wife and family.
I am shocked and saddened

I am going to miss the bright light Elihu Stewart Jr. brought to this world. Wishing comfort and peace during this difficult time.
Absent From The Body Present With The Lord. To The Stewart Family, be encouraged and Receive The Joy Of The Lord, For your Strength. He promised never to leave nor forsaken you. Brother Stewart was given Bibical first and middle names. He lived up to his Christian Duties and Calling. Know that you have a former Canaan Missionary Baptist Church , July Member, keeping you in Prayer. I recall Deacon Stewart served as a Faithful July Deacon. Happy Good Friday and Resurrection Season, Amen!
A true friend ,they are hard to come by. I’ll miss you but see you in the sweet by and by.
