VERY PROUD OF MY COUSIN STONER HERE. IT HASN'T BEEN EASY TO "FIT IN" TO A CULTURE THAT NOW DAYS OBSERVES OUR NAME ALONE, AS SOMETHING LESS THAM DESIRABLE. WE HAVE HAD TO STRIVE TWICE AS HARD AND BE TWICE AS 'STRAIGHT' TO BE "AVERAGE", OR FIT IN TO RECEIVE THE RESPECT A NORMAL PERSON RECEIVES UPON ACCOMPLISHING THE SIMPLEST GOAL.

THANK YOU FOR DOING THE VERY BEST YOU COULD DO, NO MATTER A LOT OF UNJUSTIFIED OPINIONS BEING LESS A POSITVE SUPPORT.

YOU ARE RESPECTED SIR, AND ADMIRED.
