Truly one of the most honest and decent men I have ever known. I admired him tremendously because of the way he said what he thought and did what was right. I admired the love and devotion he had for his family and always enjoyed being around Stan and Carol because I always came away thinking How cool it was to see two people so happy and loving. You could see how they still looked at each other.
I will truly miss my friend Stan.
My family and I can only convey our sincerest sympathy and Love to you and your family Miss Carol.
