    What a beautiful man….he supported my children in everything they did. From theatre to softball. He was their biggest fans. We love you and you will be truly missed.

    I had the privilege of knowing Stanley for about eleven years. As his hairdresser, we spent quiet a few hours over the years talking about his family, his job, and most importantly, Jesus. I will always treasure the many conversations and sometimes debates that we got into, all in fun though! We seem to understand each other’s humor and ideas about life. I guess I could sum it up and say, we were kindred spirits. I will miss Stanley and the hug he always gave me when he left each time. He was one of kind and I know he will be missed by all who knew him.
