  6. I am completely stunned at this news. Stuart has inspired me, educated me, created a FIRE in me to do the very best I can for my clients. It is with a broken heart that I write this and my condolences to his wife, his children, and his entire family. I want you to know that he has left a lasting mark in my heart and soul with regard to taxes and I will keep his quote alive “Tax Planning is Fire Prevention and Tax Preparation is Arson Investigation”. May he rest in heaven!
