We returned from our vacation early this morning to hear the devastating news of Stan's death. We send our love and deepest sympathy to you, Maureen, your children Erin and Jason and Stan's 5 brothers and sisters on the profound loss of such a wonderful man and friend. Stan was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He was warm and engaging and he had a special way of making us feel as if we were the only people in the room when he spoke to us. We had the pleasure of attending many events with you, Maureen and Stan over the years, and we always thought of you as a great couple who so obviously loved and respected each other. Stan always spoke so proudly of Erin and Jason, and he was always so kind to ask us how our daughter, Veronica was doing. Maureen, we hope that you, Erin and Jason will find the strength to cope with your devastating loss, It was our privilege to know and consider ourselves two of Stan's many friends.
