Dear Stanley Musial,
My daughter Adalynn has been working on a 4th grade school project called "Famous Missourians". You were chosen as her "Famous Missourian". She had to find a biography for the source, and write a report all about your life and your accomplishments. Then she made a poster with a timeline of your life events, and the final phase of her project is a 3-D model that describes you. This is her first big project as a student and what better of a person, such a great role model, you have been to her! At her age, there is nothing better than a positive role model like you to have touched her life. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Kim Helbing

So very sorry to hear of Mr. Musial's passing, I will always remember playing ball with my brother and pretending to be the {The Man] and trying to use the corkscrew batting stance he had. I always wanted to meet Mr. Musial but never had the chance to which was my loss.It's nice to know that no one else will ever wear the #6,because no one else is worthy of putting it on. Rest in peace Mr. Musial from another one of your greatest fans.

may god bless the memory of this true GIANT of baseball. the cardinals had so many great teams with "the man" leading the way. I had been watching the highlights of the 1946 world series win over Ted Williams and the Red Sox. Stan has truly earned his place in the hall of fame. Rest in Peace No.6

My mom was Stan's first cousin (also a Musial). I remember him coming to our house and giving us kids signed photos and everyone laughing alot. I know they were close, but I was only 3 or 4 years old. Now they can visit all the time.

Poland and the World have truly cherished every moment you spent with us on earth.

Stan Musial was my hero and I e-mailed to him a couple of years ago how important he was to a young boy growing up without a father. I treasure my autographs by him, If only we had more inspirational real men like him.....
February 09, 2013
With my family's multiple generations in St. Louis, I grew up, in West Virginia, with the Cardinals as part of the family DNA. To grow up hearing about Stan Musial from my grandmother, aunts, uncle (who played in the Brooklyn Dodgers and Cardinal organizations - just before and after WWII), and my parents, Stan was someone to look up to and admire. And, now and in recent years, it has been good to learn of his faith, his family, and the commitment to community. He'll be missed but his legacy lives on in so many ways.
February 04, 2013
Stan was my Dad's favorite player. I am happy to say that i got to see Stan at the end of his career and that favorite thing worked its way to me as well. My kids are third generation Cardinal fans which isn't always easy living in NY. My son was a big AP fan so when I showed him what Stan did it kind of opened his eyes as to not only greatness on the field but even a greater person off it. There has always been one thing that made me a bit sad was that in 1982 I was working for NBC and because I had access to the stadium before the second game I was able to get Stan's autograph on a World Series ball. The thing that made it sad was that my father had passed away and wasn't with me that day. I know he would have gotten such a kick out of it. Not to mention just being at the game.
February 03, 2013
That's great, David! My father had this kind of relationship with Jack Nicklaus and with the earlier great golfers when he was a caddy as a kid.
February 03, 2013
My dad and I saw the 5 home runs against the Giants and Stan's last game in '63, as well as many in between. Stan surely was the idle of every boy that played baseball in St. Louis as a kid. Dave '41
February 03, 2013
I have a long list of relatives who will be standing in the receiving line in heaven waiting to greet Stan and talk baseball.
I remember meeting him when I worked for Eastern Airlines when Stan and his wife were flying to Florida in the late 60's. I handed him the St Louis Sunday paper to read.

After listeningto the funeral Mass of Stan "THE Man" Musial last Saturday over KMOX--no TV of it here--I becamw more convinced than ever we had a walking "true to life" SAINT among us. I wonder what it would take-- Cardinal Dolan perhaps--to get him declared a SAINT in the Roman Catholic Church, a civilian who practiced his Faith and held it as a number one priority in his life although being a civilian and a professional baseball player? I don't think we ever had one like him or maybe, never will. Like all "SAINTS" he would be a model of inspiration for all us Catholics.

I got to know Stan vis his son Dick and CBC while announcing the CBC football games.

Stan "The Man" became my childhood hero in 1948 when I was 7 and at the orphanage in Des Peres, Mo. Got to shake his hand when I was 11, I am now 71 Stan "The Man" will still be my life's hero until I pass away.
February 01, 2013
I always enjoyed the Cardinal ball games at Sportsman Park with my father in the early 50's and with other friends into the60's. Stan was my favorite then and still is today. I was blessed to see many of his hits and even a three home run game with two over the right field screen. A GREAT MAN in every sense. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
February 01, 2013
When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. What great memories you have for this beloved man. My Aunt Grace Kurtz did Lil hair in the past. I can remember my aunt Grace telling us how wonderful Stan & Lil were. Stan will live in my heart forever. Thank you for sharing him with us.
February 01, 2013
Mr. Musial was always a boyhood hero of mine despite my being a Cub fan. I have the treasured Stan Musial autographed ball, bat and 1954 enlarged Saturday Evening Post cover. Thanks for a "truely wonderful life".
February 01, 2013
I had the fortunate experience to meet Mr. Musial many years ago when I was performing with my band downtown at a function. Mr. Musial came over to the band's table during break, sat down and talked with us like we were old friends. I remember calling him "Mr. Musial," and he quickly told me "My name is Stan." What a lovely, gracious gentleman he was! That brief encounter will always be a cherished memory for me. He was a true sports hero, humble beyond words.
January 31, 2013
I have been a baseball fan for 60 years. Stan the Man and the Cardinals have been my favorite player and team. I am so sorry to hear he has left us but we will all meet again in heaven.

Draw close to God and he will draw close to you. Our prayers are with the family.

Stan was my hero growing up. From when I listened to the '46 series, the Cards and Stan Musial became the favorites of a 10 year old, upstate NY kid. Saw Stan play at Forbes Field when my brother in law, who lived in Mt. Pleasant PA, took me to the Pirates game. What a thrill to see Stan the man. I cherish the memory. My sincere condolences to the Musial family.

My sympathy to the Musial family,

May he be granted eternal rest.

RIP AND WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
January 30, 2013
My dad. Ed Turek. appparently played baseball against you in Hawaii while you were both in the military. You led the life that maybe my dad would have, if he would have signed that minor league contract that he was offered. Again, his parents urged him to marry and get a job because to them baseball was recreation. His parents were Polish immigrants too, first generation in the US, and the grown kids were expected to work and give their earnings to the family unless they were getting married. So many times I think my dad had regrets for not following his dream. Thanks for letting us live our dream through your life! My dad was a real decent guy just like Stan. A genuine gentleman and good role model for young men. I picture my dad welcoming Stan in heaven and they are playing baseball together. Of course you know, my dad was also a left handed first baseman! I guess they will have to take turns out on the field! Wishing your family peace and comfort from reading all of these wonderful memories of your dad and messages from admiring fans!

Gone but never forgotten.
January 30, 2013
My father named me after Stan. I was lucky to see him play as a child. I played first base and batted left-handed in high school and married a girl named Lil. Stan was both my childhood hero and my lifetime hero. There will never be another like him. Thanks for the memories.
January 30, 2013
You were the greatest hero of my life. I
last watched you play 50 years ago, and I
am still your biggest fan.
January 29, 2013
I remember when I was 10 years old the late Bernie Fox of KMOX radio took me up to the Stadium Club at Busch Stadium in 1969 when I had the chance to meet Stan Musial. Even at that young age I felt very honored to be in the presence of a very special person. My prayers to the Musial family.
January 29, 2013
Sadly I was too young to ever watch Stan "The Man" play, but as a native St. Louisan and lifelong Cardinal fan, I can certainly attest to what he meant to the city and the team. He was a remarkable man and a true ambassador in every way imagineable. Men like him have the power to move and Heaven and earth, and that he did.

Thank you all for sharing him with us! Even though I'll miss seeing him riding around the track on opening day, I'm certain that his spirit will be there begging to "Take us out to the ballgame" for many years to come.

God's continued blessings upon you all.
January 29, 2013
To the entire Musial family, My condolences! Stan was a one of a kind man and my sons hero growing up!He will be missed by all! St. Louis Cardinals baseball will not be the same without him!
January 29, 2013
Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
January 29, 2013
To Mr. Musial & Family,
I viewed Stan from afar and I certainly recognized his absolute genuine personality and commitment to the people and his family. What a wonderful ballplayer and person he was.

Great individual as well as a player. Thanks Stan

One of the last gentlemen from a special era in major league baseball. May he rest in peace.

Thank you for al the wonderful memories, Stan was an inspiration for all of us.
January 28, 2013
Stan will always be in hearts of Cardinal Nation. Opening Day won't be the same without him and his harmonica. Thanks to the Musial family for sharing his memorial with us.
January 28, 2013
Among the first voices I recall ca. 1946 was the clarion voice of Harry Caray filling my grandparents' home, talking about a special Cardinal, Stan the Man. Thank you for so very many positive memories.
January 28, 2013
Our family will miss Stan The Man. Our prayers go out to your family. Please know that he will always be in your hearts as well as ours.
January 28, 2013
Stan, thank you for all the thrills! We in Cardinal Nation all love you. Rest in peace!

Growing up in the 40's & 50's in a small Louisiana town, I awaited every summer night till 9 or 10, when KMOX in clearly to hear Harry and Jack describe the deeds of the Cardinals and my all-time hero, Stan Musial. Three of us worked all summer each year to save up enough money to make a trip to St. Louis and one year,we had enough to make a visit and eat at Stan and Biggies. While eating, we saw Stan enter and head back to his office. Though totally out of character for me, I went back to his office; he looked up and said "Hi, come in." For the next several minutes he chatted with me, showed me some pictures on the walls and after I left, he came over to our table and shook hands with all of us, then called Biggie over and both of them autographed a menu for each of us. That menu still hangs, framed, in my den. Stan Musial was and is and always will be, along with my dad and Doak Walker, an all-time hero. Thank you Stan for taking a few minutes of your valuable time to thrill three teen-age boys from Louisiana, and THANK YOU GOD for the opportunity to not only see this incredible baseball player play but more important, YOU gave me the chance to meet this remarkable and great man. Thanks Stan for the memories. Rest in Peace with your wonderful Lil.

What a great #6 Cardinal player. I listened to the radio with my father when they played. Stan will be nissed going around the field on opening day but I know that he will be lookinig down from above with his Red jacket on. God bless to the family. Stan was 1 of a kind and he will be with all of you always.
January 28, 2013
One of my treasures is an autographed photo of Stan when he made an appearance at Central Hardware in Kirkwood in the early 1960s. He made all of the kids feel special that day, as he did everyday. The Cardinals have lost their most special player.

January 28, 2013
In 1950 my husband, Jim, and I (we were not married at the time) were in a safety movie with Stan. It was a thrill to me as Stan was my favorite baseball player. I remember how kind he was to us as teenagers. After the filming, we were treated to a lunch at Stan's restaurant and were thrilled that he joined the crew and visited with all of us. I still have a copy of that movie and will treasure it forever. Thanks to Stan for the memories.
January 28, 2013
From the Carter fam in Las Vegas, Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I had the honor to meet and sit and chat with the legend @ the Missouri sports hall of fame . And alter that nite Stan 'the Man' introduced us at the HOF dinner and inducted the 1979 Drury College Panthers into the State Hall of Fame. What a great man, R.I.P.
January 28, 2013
How fortunate to have lived such an awsome life. And how fortunate for me that you touched mine. Can see you now with Jack Buck tossing those $20.00 bills on the side walks of heaven! God bless you and your family. You are truely treasured and will be missed. A true honor to have known you.
January 27, 2013
What a true gentleman! I was fortunate to see him play & in 2006, got to meet him. My dream had come true. I saw him at a restaurant while celebrating my birthday. I had my picture taken with him, he signed my Musial jersey, & joined us at our table. What an honor. Something I will nevter forget. He told me to bring the picture to his office & he would sign that too - which I did. He remembered it was my birthday & played Happy Birthday on his harmonica while everyone sang. I also got a kiss on my cheek. These memories can never be taken from me. RIP Stan! Gone but never forgotten.
January 27, 2013
A great man from the greatest generation, you will never be forgotten.
January 27, 2013
My sympathy to the Musial family. Thank you for sharing him with all of Cardinal Nation throughout the years and allowing us to say goodbye! Opening day will not be the same without him! He was an inspiration to many not just in baseball but in life! Rest in Peace Stan the Man!
January 27, 2013
I am saddened that I can't use the term "living legend" for Stan anymore. This man was like a superhero to the common sports fan. My thoughts are with Stan's family, especially Brian, who has no choice but to be the fine young man he is with Janet and Marty as parents and "The Man" and Lil as grandparents. Stan had a long, full life and I am proud to have met him. A true inspiration, he really was "The Man".
January 27, 2013
As many in this book, I also grew up watching and listening to Cardinal baseball with Jack Buck and Harry Caray. My dad loved #6. When I was 10, my dad took me to meet Stan at Red Bird lanes. I shook his hand, got an autographed picture and baseball which stayed in my room for many, many years. Stan was one of the greatest and I was lucky enough to see him play at Sportsman's Park and Busch Stadium. God Bless you and thank you to the Musial family for sharing him with all of us.
January 27, 2013
RIP Stan the Man!
January 27, 2013
I have such fond memories of Mr Musial .. especially at our Sunset CC swim meets. Often Mr Musial would hand out the second place ribbons .. I believe it was because those ribbons were red :) .. I intentionally came in second place so that he would pull me from the pool and hand me my red ribbon. I was a winner. Many thanX and God bless the family. MiMi Hunsaker

The Musial Family,

Our City and American Baseball lost it's shining knight this week. What my family will remember of this wonderful man, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend to so many, is his spirit, his faith, his generous way with his time, his talent and his treasure for so many years. God blessed him in so many ways but he always shared those blessings with those who crossed his life. To have met Stan and some of his family over the years was always an honor for me and my family. If there are only a "few good men" Stan would be at the top of the list for sure. He made memories for so many in both large and small acts of kindness throughout his life and they may have gone unnoticed, but never forgotten by those who received them. He always called my father "Buckie" and he was the only one who did so making it a special recognition for my Dad by Stan.
We may have lost the pride of our City but we have a legacy to live up to in remembrance of him.

Georgia and Frank Rankin and Family

Dear Musial Family,
My husband, Jason Bornmueller, installed your garage door and operator several years ago.
One of his fondest memories in life was having the pleasure of Mr Musial company in the garage talking baseball with him while he installed the door and operator.
A few days after the install a gift was sent to Jay, a signed baseball and bat with matching numbers. It is one of my husbands most valued possessions.
Not because of it being signed and numbered, but just the memory of the day, and that Mr Musial thought of him.

We are so sorry for your loss.
The Bornmueller Family
January 27, 2013
The Musial's family bond to one another,the community and deep faith is reflected in this past week. Thank you for all the memories we will share forever.Stan made a difference in his, our lives.
January 27, 2013
I would like to express my condolences to the Musial family. Thank you for allowing US to say goodbye to Stan. He was a part of many Cardinal fan discussions when it came to baseball. I have always been an avid Cardinal fan. I love talking to my grandson and son-in-law about the Cardinal games and players. I always looked forward to Opening Day and seeing Stan in the opening ceremonies. I realize last April will be the last time we will see one of baseball's greatest sports ICONS. Thanks for sharing Stan with all of US.

My deepiest sympathy to all of the Musial Family. Stan will never be forgotten. He was the greatest. As a kid we only had a radio and my Dad was a great Cardinal and Musial Fan. I can still hear Harry Carey and Jack Buck yelling when Stan would come up to bat. RIP Stan. You are missed.
January 27, 2013
We lost a fine and gracious man. God bless his children ,grand kids and great grand children.
January 27, 2013
A true gentleman. Cardinal baseball won't be the same without you. Rest in peace Mr. Musial.

January 26, 2013
What a remarkable day for a remarkable human being. Thank you, Musial family, for sharing you father not only on such a poignant day but your whole lives. The tribute you included the entire city in today made one feel so proud to identify with what makes St. Louis so special: Catholic faith, Cardinal baseball and humble fans -- all character traits your father showered upon our town. Bless you.
January 26, 2013
musial and family as i grew up in st louis hill you guys and gals were like any family but with greater family values stan will be dearley mised by all but now he is with lil and his past family

This is for a man who loved what he did and I saw play as a child I went to Sportsman park to watch him play we always listened to the Cardinal games as my Father was a hugh fan Stan was always a gentleman, humane and gracious he will always be remembered my daughter is now a Cardinal fan and thought he was a good man.
January 26, 2013
I grew up with you and you are a part of my childhood memories. Thanks for being such a man of integrity and honor!
January 26, 2013
My dad is now in heaven with Stan the Man and Jack Buck. They must be having a wonderful time. My dad loved both of these men and was a huge Cardinal fan.
January 26, 2013
Stan was my baseball hero when growing up. I played semi-pro baseball and copied Stan's stance, swing, and also batted left handed. The world has lost the greatest sports figure it will ever see. He gave 100%+ every game, was a great gentleman, humble to and respected by all baseball fans.
January 26, 2013
Stan, you were our Hero on earth;
now you are our HERO in Heaven!
Thanks for the heartfelt memories: for taking time to sign a personalizd HOF baseball, two personalized autographed pictures at Famous-Barr for us and our grandson, Brandon, and for being the genuine person that we can always emulate.
January 26, 2013
My Dad was born November 5, 1920, so he felt a bond with Stan. I grew up thinking that the greatest Cardnal of all time was like part of the family. My Dad passed away in May, an end of a great era. The greatest generation and the greatest Cardinal !
January 26, 2013
Stan, you were my boyhood hero and still are I am 75 years old from Pa. and a Cardinal fan all my life.Last week my son gave me a 1944 Musial jersey for my birthday. Rest in peace
January 26, 2013
Cardinals Nation has lost a "great man" and baseball heaven has gained one....R.I.P #6, we already miss you....
January 26, 2013
You are an inspiration to me as a person and as a catholic. Thank you for renewing my faith.
January 26, 2013
Stan sent an autographed photo to my brother and I when we were about 10 (now 63)years old. Our friend, Yosh Kawano,longtime clubhouse manager of the Cubs remembers Stan as one of baseball's nicest persons. Thanks for the memories.
January 26, 2013
My father took me to many Cardinals games as a child. I was at a double header on a Sunday afternoon sitting behind the Cards dugout. Between games when the teams were warming up I went down to the fence to get Stan's autograph. He saw me standing there and came over and autographed my scorecard. Fast forward; my wife, a friend and myself were at Musial and Biggie's for dinner. Stan stopped by our table to talk to us. I told him about the autograph he had given me many years before. He said he remembered and made me feel great. I later figured out he didn't remember everyone he signed a scorecard for, but he made everyone feel like somebody. Always a gentleman. He is not only a great loss to St. Louis, but to mankind in general.
January 26, 2013
So long Mr. Musial you will never know how much of a positive influence you had on my life. Our family was always arguing, etc, but when the conversation turned to you and the Cards-then unity prevaled! You make me proud to say I am from St. Louis and a Cardinal fan. RIP and God Bless.
January 26, 2013
Our deepest sympathy to the entire Musial family. Never had the honor of meeting Stan in person. Seen his appearance at many cardinal games.He is a true HERO!, especially to the Cardinal Nation.He will never be forgotten. I know all us Cardinal fans Thank - You for letting us share in the memorial.
January 26, 2013
My profound sympathy to the Musial Family. When I lived in Cooperstown,NY, he was my teenage baseball idol. At seventy-six years of age, Stan Musial remains my baseball idol because he was an extraordinary baseball player and an impeccable gentleman.
January 26, 2013
May he rest in peace. My best to his family.I was raised a Cardinal fan. My grandfather,my father and all us kids.

He was one of the great ones and his behavior on and off the field is the role model that we should all live by. In this era of seeking big money - Stan the Man only ever wanted to be a Cardinal. God Bless
January 26, 2013
I was a young man during the 1950's while Stan was still playing for the Cardinals. My parents took the family to Musial and Biggies for dinner. As we were leaving at the end of our meal, in walks Musial with some friends. Being a shy boy, there was no way I was going to approach this star baseball player. Musial saw me, the youngest of the group, came up to me, talked to me and shook my hand. It was a thrill I willd never forget from a special man.
January 26, 2013
My condolences to the Musial family. My love for the cardinals started many years ago and i had the opportunity to see a game and meet stan the man. What a great experience. He was a wonderful man and he will be greatly missed.
January 26, 2013
To the Musial Family, My thoughts and prayers are with you aa this very sad time. MAY THE MAN REST IN PIECE.......God Bless All Of You Christina Jones

Dear Musial family, I'm deeply sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing Stan The Man's homegoing with the public. It was a beautiful service. I'm not old enough to have seen him play and I've never met him but my dad began grooming me early to be a Cardinals fan for life. My brother and sisters are fair weather fans, but not me and baseball is something my dad and I enjoyed together. I know he's excited that Stan is in heaven now with him and I'm sure he's waiting to meet Stan and to invite him to play cards and drink a beer. May God bless and keep you all!-xoxo Kim

How lucky I am to have had you as my childhood hero! There will never be another Stan the Man, but what a standard you have set for all of us to strive for. Thank you for the memories and uplifting/inspiring "Stan" stories! My sympathy to the family and my thanks for sharing him with us.
January 26, 2013
Our hearts are hurting but our lives are richer. Stan Musial helped make St. Louis the best place to live!

My deepest condolences to the Musial family. Thank-you for allowing us the
oppurtunity to say goodbye to Stan " The Man" Musial. Always Cardinals fans, we cherish all the memories.
My parents passed away a few years ago,
loyal Cardinal fans, and now they will
meet Stan in Heaven. May he Rest in
Peace.
God Bless him and the Musial Family.
January 26, 2013
My deepest condolences to the Musial family. Stan always was my personal hero! May he rest in peace.
January 26, 2013
To the Musial family, My heartfelt thanks for allowing us to say goodbye to one of the greatest baseball players. Days may pass, but memories never fade away. Rest in peace...Stan "The Man" Musial.
January 26, 2013
My memories of Stan began in 1958 when I began reading about his chase of 3000 hits. Living in the Northeast like I did, I only got to see him play late in his career against the Mets, but my parents were both Brooklyn Dodger fans, so we had some lively discussions about "The Man". A life well lived, a great player, family man and the best ambassador baseball could ever have. I never got the chance to meet Stan in person, although I probably would have fainted if I did, but I have a number of items from Stan the Man, Inc, and I have treasured them over the years. I've been to St. Louis on business, and I've touched the statue a couple of times, and that's been good enough for me. He was my boyhood hero as a baseball player, but even more so as a man - I will miss him greatly, but his suffering is ended, and he is reunited with Lil, God Bless them both. "The ERA in Heaven is going to go up!". God Speed, Stan, thank you for all the great memories, and thank you to the entire Musial family for letting Cardinal Nation share the funeral service at this difficult time for them. Hopefully, the outpouring of Stan's many friends and fans will soothe the pain of his loss for his family. God Bless.
January 26, 2013
As a legacy in cardinal nation, Stan the man will not be forgotten. God bless your family.
January 25, 2013
My condolences to the Musial Family...I am a transplanted St.Louisan who was taken to Sportsmen`s Park too young to remember...Some of my fondest St.Louis memories were grandparents having on the radio on a summer night,on the porch,before air conditioning closed the windows,hearing Harry Caray`s play by play...I can`t think of a better person than `the Man` to represent St.Louis` fun and higher values,and he wasn`t even native!I`m lucky to have been born on his birthday and will always say so...Yes,the greatest Cardinal ever and we were so fortunate to have won him over!...Sincerely,Susan
January 25, 2013
To Stan Musial's Family :On behalf of everyone of us that took the opportunity to come and pay our final respect at The Cathedral Basilica, THANK YOU. You are so kind to do that for all of us. It's no wonder now that Stan was able to live 92 years, it was the love and care that all of you gave to him. May God look down upon each of you the rest of your days.
January 25, 2013
If there is a "Hall of Fame" in heaven, Stan is a first vote winner. The tears of your passing can float a battleship. Yet, those of us who watched you play, that met you in person are better for doing so. Thank You Stan, you are the "Man".
January 25, 2013
Stan the Man!!!
Gone but not forgotten. Our thoughts and prayer are with the Musial family.
January 25, 2013
I am that rarest of baseball fans, a Cardinal fan from New York. Being a part of this thriving community in which affinity for the Yankees or the Mets is often taken as a given, I am often asked why St. Louis. Although the reasons are many, my answer could always be reduced to two simple words which are the name of one very fine man, the man, Stan Musial. It is simple and as pure as that.

Stan Musial represented everything that I love about Cardinals baseball and if I were to take it a step further everything that I admire and value about being an American. He stood for those time-tested virtues that are the blood, bone and sinew of our nation. The truth is that America is great because America consists of good and decent people. People who in the finest of all American traditions dedicate themselves so that by their efforts today will be better than yesterday and God willing tomorrow will be even better than today.

Stan Musial embodied this sentiment and more. As the memories of his playing days faded and I was born after he retired, Stan was perhaps best known to younger generations for his harmonica playing. It was in its own way America singing and singing a joyous song, the rapture that only comes from living in this wonderful country and being free to appreciate something as glorious as a ball game. That is the way Stan lived and that is what he came to represent throughout his 92 years on this earth.

We in Cardinal Nation may longer have him with us but we will forever have his example to guide us. He was a beacon of kindness, decency, sportsmanship and all the little things that make life worth living. Stan Musial was an American perennial, an evergreen whose life and career had a purpose and beauty beyond all measure. Stan meant so much to so many people not only because of his gifts on the diamond but because of the life he lived off the field and after his playing days were over. He was what we all aspire to be on the playing field and what we hope we will be in that bigger game called life. God Bless him for he will surely be missed and his memory will be treasured by my family and I for as long as we live.

To the family of Stan we are sorry for your loss and the loss a great man.

Close to 50 years ago before my wife and I were married, We were at Guy Lombardo's "Port-O-Call". Stan and Red Schoendinst were there with another gentleman. They were all gracious to give me their autographs. I remember that time and meeting a great man. (I just looked at the beat up menu with his signature.)

Got bless him.

I would like to Thank the Musial Family for sharing this remarkable Man with the world for so long. I'm sure at times you wished you could have him all to yourselves. He was a Very Special Man, and built a Very Special Family. Again Thank you all so much. Patricia
January 25, 2013
Dear Musial Family,
The grace and dignity you have shown to St. Louis and the world in the passing of your beloved father and grandfather is a model to us all.

I grew up loving Stan the Man as he was my father's favorite; further proof that my father was once again "right." We all have different Stan Musial stories and memories to share, but the thread of each story is the same; a good and kind man that loved and respected people, and always acknowledged a kid.

Ironically, my family and I talked on Saturday, Jan.22nd at lunch about Stan the Man as I was expressing my plans to take my two year old grandson to his first Cardinal game, and teach him about the best ball player of all time.

Thank you for the thrills and wonderful memories, Mr. Musial. You deserved the respect, and admiration you earned by showing generations the lessons of a life well lived.

I bet that when my father walks up to you in Heaven, you will cordially shake his hand and greet him as a long time friend. Rest in peace #6 !!!

A St. Louisian

You were one of kind Stan.....Not only a hero of mine, but my Mother's favorite visiting player. Rest in Peace.

If I had the choice of meeting any single player in the history of MLB, it would be Stan The Man Musial. From a life long Braves fan.
January 25, 2013
May he rest in peace.
January 25, 2013
Mr Musial was one of my favorite baseball players.He could hit and was a great player and man.Thank you for his service in the Navy during WWII.My sympathy to his family.
January 25, 2013
I remember watching you play when my cub scout pack went to the games at old Busch. At that young age I was not aware of your greatest as a player or a person. I wish I could have met you face to face. What a role model for young folks as well as adults. Your humble ways are amazing and you will be missed. I just received a retro Cardinal jersey for Christmas this year, and of course it has your number on the back. I will were it proudly in your honor.
January 25, 2013
I will never forget meeting Stan as a child at his restaurant and he autographing a black and white photo. His death brings a tear to me.
January 25, 2013
To Stan the Man, loved by all and will be missed by all. Looking forward to having a catch with you in a few years in the "field of dreams". Bill Hague
January 25, 2013
My condolences to the Musial family. The grief of losing a father is great and beyond words. I've been a Cardinal fan all my life. I never got a chance to see Stan Musial play, the only thing I can do every time I come back to St. Louis is go to the stadium, but first stop at the statue of Stan Musial. He, to me is the Cardinals and baseball and St. Louis all in one. All the things I love. He is home for me and always will be.
January 24, 2013
You will be missed. You were a great player and a great man for the kids to look up to. You'll be missed.
January 24, 2013
I never forget Stan Musial. I was 6 years old when my parents and friends took me to the Old Sportsman's Park on May 2, 1954. I did not know about Stan Musial back then. Everything was announced by sound. I was deaf and I was unable to understand what was said. My parents were too busy blabbing, etc. and they always told me, “later, later… and they never told me!” I watched and recorded each ballplayer's numbers carefully so that I could I.D. the players later. After I saw the ballplayer with Number 6 hit the first homerun (over the Pavilion) the Number 6 etched in my head. Later in the game I saw Number 6 hit second, third, fourth and fifth homeruns in a doubleheader (against New York Giants)! Later I learned that his name was Stan Musial. I idolized him. Later I learned that the ballplayer who caught his near-homerun ball was Willie Mays. 2 of his homeruns were hit off Hoyt Wilhelm. I thought the New York Giants were giant ballplayers but I was shocked when I saw that the Giants were as... small as the Cardinals.

He was the most exemplary ballplayer – no drug trouble, no women trouble, no tax trouble, no ejections from ballgames, no arguments with umpires, etc. He was the most humble player.

We used to eat out at his restaurant, Musial & Biggies – first on Chippewa Rd. then on Oakland Blvd. Stan would make rounds to greet customers during the off-season. He was very nice.

At Central Institute for the Deaf, we used to talk about Stan Musial A LOT!

In August 1979 my parents took us to Robert Lewis' farm in Breese, Illinois for all day Luau. I saw a light green Cadillac with license number “3,000” – I knew that Stan Musial was somewhere around. I looked for him and found him. I asked my dad (Dr. Hugh Crowell, M.D.) and Dr. Bray Hawk, M.D. if they would introduce us (me, wife and 2 sons) to him. Sure they did! Stan was the nicest fellow I ever have known. I had a picture taken of all of us and later I went to Stan's business and asked him to autograph 4 duplicate pictures – 1 each for us in family of 4.

I have kept the baseball cards – they are in my bank's safe deposit box. I used to own the baseball glove of the same kind that was used by Stan Musial. I no longer have that glove... I wished I had kept it.

If one were to ask Musial, he would rate the Cardinals' World Championship seasons ahead of any individual accomplishments, which is only right. Still, hitting five home runs in a doubleheader was one of the all-time great feats in baseball history.
January 24, 2013
To the greatest Cardinal of the past, present and future.

I first saw you play live at Sportsman's Park in the late 50's. You set the standard for all to follow both as a player and a man.

You'll never be forgotten. Condolences to your family.
January 24, 2013
The passing of baseball legend Stanley Frank Musial, one of the most respected players in the major leagues, brought back many memories of the man who was my idol as I grew up. I became a Saint Louis Cardinal fan in 1944 when "Stan the Man" was in his early years of his 22 year career. As I grew older I was able to drive to Ebbets Field in Brooklyn with friends to see the Dodgers play the Cardinals. I did the same at the Polo grounds in New York when the Giants hosted the redbirds.

At every game that I attended at those two parks Stan Musial hit a home run and more. His accomplishments and records of his long career speaks for itself. I have old newspaper clippings from the New Haven Register sports page with Musial in the headlines.

Some years ago "Stan the Man" was a guest at a baseball card show held at the University of New Haven. I can still see him as he was escorted to the autograph signing table. Standing only a few feet away from him he stopped and said "we have business to take care of before we start". He took out his harmonica and we all sang along to "Take Me Out To The Ball Game". At age 92 we have lost another of America's greatest generation.

Stan the Man. No more needs to be said. Earl Weaver told the Lord he needed a great clutch hitter. The Lord gave him the best. Swing away Stan, rest in peace
January 24, 2013
Thank you Stan for sharing your talented life with our family. My dad watched you when he was also in his twenties, and spoke of you often. Never will St. Louis have a legend like you call St. Louis home. Everytime you rode in on your cart or in played your harmonica, I could feel the tears come to my eyes. Keep that team in heaven going; Say Hi to Jack Buck and Ken Boyer. Peace to you and your family. Also, Thankyou to your family for sharing you Dad with us all these years! God Bless you Always!
January 24, 2013
I have been a Cardinal fan ever since I was eight years of age. As a young Sister, I saw you in Milwaukee.
What a role model you have been. May you rest in peace

My condolences to the family. Heaven has another player for his team of angels. He we will be missed. The Cardinal Nation will never be the same without him.
January 24, 2013
Godspeed,STan. I first saw you play at Forbes Field in 1956. Thanks for all the thrills.A great player and a great human being.
January 24, 2013
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Thanks Janet, Marty and Brian for sharing your father and grandfather with us. He was a very special person to all and we were so lucky to meet him at our Johnny Mac games. Thanks for sharing him with us. Love McComy Family.
January 24, 2013
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
I never met "The Man". However, he was my "baseball idol" while I was growing up and I followed him through the years. He was a great "man", a great "warrior" and a great "knight" for sure. There will never be another man like him!
January 24, 2013
You were the best Stan! You're the jewel at the mountain's summit! We're all looking up to you! Thanks for your guidance!

My deepest Condolences to the Musial family and to My Cardiologist Dr. Schwarze and his family. Dr. Schwarze if my grandson turns out to be half as wonderful as your son Brian has been to his Grandfather I can rest peacefully when my time comes as I am sure Mr. Musial is resting peacefully now. Brian you could have been doing anything your heart could desire but you chose to give of your time and with such patience you showed him so much love and respect and you kept that smile on his face till the end. You are a great guy your family should be very proud of you. Joy Crump

My St Louis generation's childhood hero is gone. Growing up within walking distance of the old Busch my mom & dad used it as a kind of babysitter for me in the 50's going to in excess of 50 games per year with my buddies in the neighborhood. HE was the bigger than life 'man' there at Grand & Dodier. Later in life my daughter went to school with his granddaughter & we belonged to the same parish as he and Lil did. I still didn't want to meet him personally because, for me, he was bigger than life and I treated him as a deity in my memory. Big mistake as he was apparently one of those people who, irrespective of his stature, was one of those very few 'nice guys.' My sincerest condolences to his family. There's a candle at St Mary's in Brigg in Lincolnshire, England burning for Stan tonight.
January 24, 2013
Farewell, good and faithful servant.
May your reward be great in heaven.
Thank you for fueling Hope, Sir. You did God's work and you won the most important race of life: you lived well.

God blessings always,
January 24, 2013
I'm very proud of Stan, using God's gifts so well and entertaining so many!
January 24, 2013
Good-bye, Stan the Man - a life well lived and thank you for the memories. You and my father were the same age. I hope he gets to meet you in Heaven.
You and your family are truly class acts; almost a novelty in today's world. Thank you for the many wonderful memories and for showing the St. Louis and the world what class really means.
January 24, 2013
Stan was my Uncle. I grew up in Pittsburgh and was fortunate to have been able to see my Uncle play at Forbes Field. He was without a doubt one of the greatest ball players ever to put on spikes. He was very appreciative of his fans. He was great yet humble. I wish I could have spent more time with him. The nice things you see written about him are all true. I will miss his smiles, his jokes, and most of all I will miss him.
January 24, 2013
You touched so many lives, you will never know, may God hold your family in his hands while the grieve over losing you. Rest in peace and go on to the next life that awaits us all.
January 24, 2013
Thank you Stan,GOD BLESS you and your family!
January 24, 2013
From a life long Cardinal fan.. Thank you for all the memories.Baseball /Cardinals lost a great Icon.. May the fore winds blow you home Stan..
January 24, 2013
God bless Stan's family, he was a true gentleman and never heard a bad thing about him. I've lived in St. Louis all my life and grew up with Cards baseball. I was lucky to see him a few times at bat at the old Sportsman's Park. And I saw him one time at the old Musial & Biggie's. He truly was Stan the Man.
January 24, 2013
I never got to see him play but my Dad named me after this great man. I got the priviledge to meet this wonderful man I was named after in Roanoke, VA. He was so nice to me. May this great man rest in Peace.
January 24, 2013
So many of us grew up with Mr. Musial being our boyhood hero.Listening to his every at bat in the 1950's and thinking maybe we could grow up to be like him. He was and always be baseball in St. Louis. We have all grown up now and even after 50 plus years He holds a very special place in our memories and our hearts. He was the MAN!
January 24, 2013
I WAS BORN IN 1953 IN MCKEESPORT HOSPITAL, AND SPENT MY CHILDHOOD BEING RAISED IN ELRAMA, PA.,HARD BY THE MONONGAHELA RIVER. A SMALL TOWN THAT OWED MUCH OF IT'S BEING TO THE SHIRE OAKS YARDS OF THE MIGHTY PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD. JUST 11 MILES DOWNRIVER FROM DONORA. OUR TOWN, AND MANY OTHERS IN THE MON VALLEY, DOWN TO PITTSBURGH, WERE FUELED BY THE RAILROADS, COAL MINES, AND STEEL MILLS THAT INTERTWINED ALONG THE RIVER'S BANKS, AND STREAMS, FLOWING DOWN THE HOLLOWS THAT FED HER. MEN AND WOMEN LABORED, PROUD OF THEIR WORK, FEELING IT A PRIVILEGE TO HAVE A JOB, HELPING TO SUSTAIN THIS GREAT COUNTRY, AND HOPING TO PROVIDE THEIR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WITH A BETTER LIFE. PLEASURES WERE FEW.CHURCH. FRIENDS AND FAMILY. A COLD ONE AT A "BEER GARDEN". A CHEAP CIGAR. A HOMEGROWN TOMATO, JUST PICKED FROM BEHIND THE HOUSE, OR A BASEBALL GAME, ON A HOT SUMMER NIGHT COMING OVER THE RADIO AIRWAVES, AS YOU SAT ON THE PORCH SWING. MY DAD WAS A LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER ON "THE PENNSY", AND I LOST HIM TOO SOON. HE WAS 44, AND I WAS 12. HE WAS MY HERO. AND I CAN STILL HEAR MY HERO, WHEN STAN MUSIAL STEPPED UP TO THE PLATE, TELLING ME TO "BE LIKE HIM". ALTHOUGH WE WERE PIRATE FANS, WE COULD NOT, AND WOULD NOT, ROOT AGAINST STAN. HE WAS ONE OF US. A NICE POLISH BOY FROM THE MON VALLEY, WHO MADE IT GOOD. WHEN THE ADULTS SPOKE OF STAN THE MAN, OR STASH, IT WAS IN ONE OF TWO WAYS. THEIR FACES WOULD LIGHT UP, THEIR WORDS ANIMATED AND COMING RAPIDLY, WITH HIGH PRAISE AND A SMILE ON THEIR FACES, OR WITH A SERIOUS EXPRESSION, TALKING IN LOW TONES, SLOWLY, WITH GREAT RESPECT AND ADMIRATION. I KNEW WHAT MY FATHER MEANT. "BE LIKE HIM". NOT JUST A WONDERFUL ATHLETE, BUT A GOOD HUMAN BEING. TO BORROW A PHRASE FROM FROM ANOTHER GREAT SPORTSMAN, BUT ON A DIFFERENT FIELD, VINCE LOMBARDI SAID "WE ARE CHASING PERFECTION, AND WE SHALL NEVER CATCH IT. BUT, WE WILL OVERTAKE EXCELLENCE ALONG THE WAY". WE KNOW THAT ONLY GOD IS PERFECT. STAN OVERTOOK EXCELLENCE, AND GAVE A HECKUVA RUN AT CHASING PERFECTION. NOT ONLY AS BASEBALL PLAYER, BUT AS A FINE HUMAN BEING. THANK YOU, STAN. YOU SET A GREAT EXAMPLE FOR ALL OF US. GOD BLESS YOU. MY SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. MAY YOUR HEARTS BE FILLED WITH GOD'S GRACE, AND PEACE, KNOWING THAT STAN'S WAS A LIFE WELL LIVED.
January 24, 2013
Thanks for the memories! You are a special part of St. Louis, and we will miss you!

To the family and friends of Mr.Musial -please accept or deepest sympathies for your loss. he will always be remembered. From the Steve Reese and Carol Evans families!
January 24, 2013
You made so many people happy.
January 24, 2013
"THE MAN"- this can be taken in many ways by many people,whether the immediate family or just admirers as we are and will always be. I told I left words on MLB, and probably here before,but I wanted to pass on my utmost feelings to all of the Musial Family. He will be missed but not forgotten- He brought back all of the very good memories of our pass lifes especially going to watch his play at Sportsmen Park with our father. He is NOW once again in the Major Leagues.
RIP MR. Stanley F Musial- we will see you again playing that game and your harmonica.

Mr. Musial was a Class Act on and off the baseball field. The thrill of Opening Day was always greater because we were privileged to see Stan the Man. It will not be the same without him. My sympathies and prayers for the Musial family.

Stan and Lil are at peace in the loving arms of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

When I was very small, we lived 2 blks from Sportsmen's Park, during the war.
We then moved to a farm, and my Dad brought me up as a Cardinals fan. We thought the world of Stan the Man! I will tell our grandchildren about him.Thanks for the memories and we will never forget him. How lucky I was to have seen him play. Just to see him at the park, after his playing days., was so meaningful.
January 23, 2013
You made us proud.
January 23, 2013
There will never be another player like him with his play and character. Imagine what the Allstar game in heaven is like.
January 23, 2013
We share your sorrow.
Our prayers are with you.
God Bless You.
January 23, 2013
Thanks for everything, Stan, we will never forget you and we will always love you.
January 23, 2013
Thank you for a lifetime of great baseball memories. I remember my older brothers often falling asleep in the summers listening to their transitor radios with the Cardinals games going late into the night! All boys in St Louis were in awe of this great player and Cardinal - Stan the Man.

My own sons love the game too - one worked at Ladue Pharmacy about 6 years ago and when Stan Musial walked in one day as a customer, my son was lucky to get an autographed baseball from Stan! It meant the world to my boys. Whenever you'd see Stan Musial around town, he always had a smile for everyone - a great ambassador for baseball and a true hero in our hometown! RIP#6

January 23, 2013
1946 I was 9yrs old and home sick with toncilides and listened to the Cards beat the Red Sox...Reading sports magazines I found that Stan's birthday was November 21st, the same as mine...He has been my IDOL ever since.He always displayed the BEST sportsmanship I have ever seen...His photo in his batting stance hangs in my house...I will never forget "STAN" the REAL MAN...
January 23, 2013
God Bless Stan and his family.
January 23, 2013
Stan the Man : We share the same Polish Heritage. My father loved watching you
play ball !!! Heartfelt Sympathy to your family.
January 23, 2013
My condolences to the entire Musial family at this very sad time. You are not alone in your grief, as hundreds of thousands of St. Louisans are grieving with you. As a native of St. Louisan, Stan was around my entire life, retiring when I was 7. If I saw him play, I don't remember. But his presence in the city never waned as I grew up. There is a void in all of our lives now...one which will eventually be filled with memories of one of the finest human beings ever to wear a Cardinal uniform. But for now, your grief and sadness is shared. So many athletes could have learned so much from him: humility, kindness, generosity, and God and family. Rest in peace, Stan....you were "The Man".
January 23, 2013
What a treasure St. Louis had in Mr. Musial. As a season ticket holder, for sure opening day will never be the same. Our prayers are with the family and we will always think of our favorite Cardinal. Rest in Peace Stan.
January 23, 2013
Tho a die-hard Braves fan, I have always admired this man not just because of his obvious talent, but because of his great attitude. His "Let's play two" approach, a la Ernie Banks, to the game and life in general struck an excellent chord with everybody. Also being a Pacer fan, I was at a game where Reggie Miller came out from the locker room at halftime to practice shooting 3-pointers long before anyone else was on the floor. He kept practicing until the buzzer sounded to start the second half. THAT was Stan the Man in baseball. My prayers go to the Musial family in this loss.

I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one . Please find peace and comfort in Psalms 65:2.
January 23, 2013
Mr. Musial~You were such a large talent and such a humble and grateful human being. You were the true essence of a hero for kids to look up to. I can only hope that some of your wonder could rub off on some of today's athletes.
Stan was the subject of the gospel at our church this past Sunday. Our parish priest, Fr. Tom Bryon, made a comparison of Lance Armstrong to Stan Musial and what it means to appreciate the talents you have been given by God and not let them go to your head. Thank you Stan Musical. You were a great man - God Bless all of your family. Lucy Musial is a friend of my daughters. God Bless us all.
January 23, 2013
My heart is sadden for everyone's loss. For me as a child in the 50's, I lived in the neighborhood and Trick'r Treating on Halloween was always special at the Musial's home. Will never forget. I'm sure my love of baseball and the Cardinals developed from this lovely family. Stan the Man will be missed by many.
January 23, 2013
To the families: I would like to express my deepest sympathy fro your dear loved one, who has fallen asleep in death. May the God of all comfort be with you during this difficult time."
January 23, 2013
Stan was my childhood hero. One of my favorite memories was a trip to St. Louis to see Stan & the Cardinals play. He hit one of his trademark right field homers that day. What a "Man". May Stan rest in peace!
January 23, 2013
Always a gentleman, there will never be another man of his caliber in baseball. Mr Musial you will be missed.
January 23, 2013
Opening Day and the Playoffs will not be the same without the Appearance of Stan The Man Musial. God bless the Musial family.
January 23, 2013
Always a role model and gentleman.
January 23, 2013
I remember playing with Gerri when we were young girls. Mr. & Mrs. Musial had me for dinner after a play day and the family was so loving and fun. My mother was horrified to see us girls eating chocolate ice cream cones while seated on their blue velvet chairs! The Musials were just normal people but very kind and giving. Always proud of my "Stan" connection.
January 23, 2013
My memories of baseball all came from Sportsmans park,every game I went I had to have Stan the mans autograph,wish I had them now,he was and still is"the greatest"
January 23, 2013

Mr. Musial was my left handed hero besides Dad growing up in the 50' s and 60' s. Stan was the reason I became a good switch hitter.....Thanks and see you at the Field of Dreams........

January 23, 2013
What a thrill it was to have watched Stan play. Great player, Better human being!
January 23, 2013
My father was a Cardinals fan and he made me and my children Cardinals fans. Stan was the greatest Cardinal who will ever live. He was great on and off the field. I met him at Stan and Biggie's many years ago.
He is truly "Stan the Man" and his life should be an inspiration to all.
I know the family will have many happy memories.
January 23, 2013
Stan Musial has graciously blessed this earth with his heart and talent. Heaven is blessed to have received such a dedicated, warm, humble man. Our wishes to the family at this time.
January 23, 2013
Dear family and friends. I do at this time deeply extend my condolences. Please keep in mind 1 Corinthians 15:26 which tells us death is to be brought to nothing
January 23, 2013
Good morning Stan ~

I was just going to write to my brother, Stanley P. Raczynski, who preceded you in death and his burial was January 17, 2013, and decided to pay my respects to you first. My brother was known to his closest friends and family as 'Stan the Man'.

I was able to have my own personal visitation with you as I left Lester's Sports Bar and Grill, Ladue yesterday. I was going to take a photo of me in the snow for my friend from Texas and there was your statue! It is a blessing to me for that moment.

I grew up in St. Louis and watched many, many Cardinal games. My mom was a huge ~ did I mention HUGE Cardinal fan, as was my brother and, well, me! This week, going through his personal items I found an autographed photo of you, a team photo from 1964 and an autographed baseball (later vintage than your outstanding career - signed by Ozzie Smith and other players.) So you and the Cardinals were with me and my family as we began our grieving process for my brother, Stan, and a longtime Cardinal baseball fan.
At my Mom's after-funeral celebration we sang "Take me out to the ballgame” well, now you are all in Heaven and playing ball.

You are truly an icon to the sport and a great citizen of our city and the Catholic Church evidenced by your benevolence and many philanthropic gifts have changed the lives of so many people and will continue to do so for decades to come.

The first posting of your passing, I found online was in the Dallas Morning News, my current home. Thanks for being part of our family history in life and now for all eternity we are closely linked by the events of this week.

"It's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game."

"Do what matters to God."
Barbara J. Raczynski on behalf of all the Raczynski family for the greatest Cardinal ~ Stan the Man Musial!!
January 23, 2013
I've always felt that Mr. Musial was a friend/family member even though I had never met him. There just aren't many men like him today. Thank you Mr. Musial for all that you have been to St. Louis. Thank you to his family for sharing him with us all. He will always be remembered and in our hearts. My prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
January 23, 2013
Not only the greatest Cardinal of all time, but one of the greatest men of all time. The Saint Louis area especially, but also the entire country is a much better place because of Stan Musial having been here. He's up in heaven running out those triples and signing autographs for the kids.
January 23, 2013
Rest in piece stan the man.
January 22, 2013
A Special message to the Musial Family. We at this time offer our Prayers for your loss. May Stan Rest in Peace.
January 22, 2013
Stan. We will always remember you with your head up High. You have our prayers, as a Key to be used to gain access through those Special Gates. You have given all of our friends the Joy of the Sport. May you Rest in Peace.
January 22, 2013
As a youngster in the 1940s Stan Musial was the baseball hero that I looked up to as a role model. He was a real gentleman and sportsman as well as one of the greatest baseball players of all time. Rest in peace, Mr. Cardinal.
January 22, 2013
My brother,Tom Tierney, Who passed away in 2008 was a devoted St. Louis sports fan, especially when it came to the Cardinals. I treasure a photo I found of him sitting next to Stan the Man at a local golf tournament.Just sitting there like they were family or best friends. I'm sure many people have similar photos.Stan was so approachable. St. Louis and the baseball world have lost one of the finest gentleman they have ever had.
May he rest in peace.
PS I also found an autographed harmonica in my brother's things!
Eileen Beardsley, St. Ann, Mo.
January 22, 2013
I would like to send my condolence to the family,  May God bring you comfort during this difficult time Psalms 5:28,29
January 22, 2013
Best St Louis Cardinal ever. Please except my sincere condolence.
January 22, 2013
Thanks for the memories. A life well lived...we should all learn from the lessons he taught by being "The Man" he was. The greatest Cardinal who ever lived. You will be missed.
January 22, 2013
I have loved baseball all my life and Stan was much of the reason for that. Thank you for the gift you were to the world, Stan. You will live in my heart.
January 22, 2013
To the Musial family, may our LORD comfort you through this great loss. Truly, he was a great man, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. After all that, he was one of the greatest men to ever play baseball. He wa a very humble man. Psalm 116:15, "Blessed in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints." We'll be praying for you. I like everyone else that has posted here, loved to watch him play baseball. I will never forget him.
January 22, 2013
All has been written and said about Stan the Man; there is just nothing more to say except Uncle Stan you not only were a great Uncle to the family but a hero as well. A hero in the sense of how you lived your life and how all of the family looked up to you. Children are constantly looking for role models. They don't have to go very far to find one. Let them read as much as they can, watch all the videos they can about Stan The Man Musial then they would have found their role model. Uncle Stan I will miss you and may you now be at peace with your God.
January 22, 2013
God Bless the family
January 22, 2013
Thank you for sharing him with us all these years. Baseball has lost a living legend, and heaven has gained an angel.
January 22, 2013
During my life in Saint Louis, where I grew up, I always heard all the great things about Stan Musial did when he was a baseball player with the Cardinals, though I never got a chance to see him play in his career. I was happy to see him at Busch Stadium with his fellow Cardinals Hall of Famers on TV in every baseball season and in news like his visit to White House for his Metal of Freedom. He will definitely be missed. God bless him and the Musial Family.
January 22, 2013
BASEBALL AND HUMANITY HAS LOST ONE OF THE BEST, EVEN THOUGH I WAS AN AVID MILWAUKEE BRAVES FAN, MY DAD TOLD ME ALL ABOUT STAN THE MAN, SO HE WAS ALWAYS MY FAVORITE, MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE ENTIRE MUSIAL FAMILU
January 22, 2013
A great Husband, Father, grandfather, great grandfather , All-Star Baseball Player, One of a kind, I was a die hard Milwaukee Braves Fan, he was still my FAVORITE PLAYER!~
January 22, 2013
My Dad went to his grave knowing he was tied with The Man as my hero. But then The Man was tied with Harry Breechen as my fathers heros. I'm 56 and bawling like a baby.Stan, the autographed ball you think I paid too much for ($125.00)was a small price for me even though I really couldn't afford it. It will accompany me on my journey from earth. Who knows, maybe you, Pop, The Cat and myself will play a little pepper or Indian ball with it.
My sincerest condolences go out to the Musial as you have lost so much more than we have. God Bless you all.

Terry
January 22, 2013
We have lost a Great Icon. Sincere sympathy to the family of "Stan The Man". Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time.
January 22, 2013
January 22, 2013
The three words that best describe Stan The Man: Greatest. Cardinal. Ever. RIP Stan, and thanks for all of the wonderful memories.
January 22, 2013
Stan will always be remembered by me because of his ability to always do the right thing and say the right thing. His baseball accomplishments are secondary to his stature as a man among boys. And he was quite a player. My most heartfelt sympathy goes to his family. Baseball will truly miss this Redbird forever.
January 22, 2013
God bless the entire Musial family. Your father acheieved what so many search for, love of his family, love of his faith and love of his game. Cardinal Nation will hold you in our hearts forever.
January 22, 2013
Thank you Stan for being the inspiration to so many lives. It's an honor to say that we even live in the home state of the Cardinals Baseball team, where you personally were responsible for my family loving the game of baseball. You will be missed on earth but heaven will be blessed.
January 22, 2013
Mr. Musial was an amazing human being. May God bless him.
January 22, 2013
To Stan's family: our sincere sympathy. Stan's life taken
in total;can be discribed as'the best of the best';atrue reflection of who he really was! Harry Caray's discription of Stan's record breaking hit against the Cub's say's it all 'There it is'! That feat would be repeated over & over again throghout his career. Thanks for the memories Stan! God speed!
January 22, 2013
My love of baseball came from my Dad. We are Polish and Stan Musial made me so proud to be Polish. The Polish people are so proud of their shared heritage. My Dad has been gone since 1969. Losing Mr. Musial is my last connection to my youth. I am going to finally say goodbye to Dad. I know there is alot of polka in Heaven going on. Thank you Stan Musial for being part of my life.
January 22, 2013
Psalms 25:17 Distresses of my heart have multiplied;
From the stresses upon me O bring me out.
January 22, 2013
I was at the Blues game when I saw the news of Stan's death on the jumbo-tron. It seemed everyone there gave a moment of silence because it became quiet as everyone read the news up there. Stan was looking down on the home town team that night and they rewarded #6 with 6. Opening day will never be same without Stan in the processional around the stadium. A true gentleman and role model for all.
January 22, 2013
Mr. Musial was my late father's favorite player and therefore, is the favorite player of my father's children and grandchildren. My twelve-year-old son cried as if his heart was broken Saturday night when we returned home after Mass and heard the news. While my son was crying, I'm sure that my Dad was up in Heaven, beaming at the chance to meet his hero. God bless you, Mr. Musial.
January 22, 2013
We were all so lucky to have had him for so long. We will miss you this season but have a feeling he will be watching from afar with Lil by his side.
January 22, 2013
Condolences to Musial's Family, Friends and Cardinal Nation for the loss of our perfect warrior & perfect knight, RIP! We salute Stans's Grandson Brian Schwarze for his dedication, God Bless!
January 22, 2013
Thank You Stan The Man for the Love of baseball. You were a legend and a great man. A awesome fixture to St. Louis and I am proud to be from there. You will be miss.
January 22, 2013
A real star; ethics, integrity, community leader and no drugs. The best St Louis Statesman for my 71 years
January 22, 2013
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
January 22, 2013
I gotto see Mr. Musial play at Crosley Field in Cincinnati in the late 50s. A seat on the left field line was 3 three dollars as I recall. He was within seven or eight feet of me and was even willing to talk to me for a brief time as he was warming up. It was wonderful to see him that day after listening on the radio for years to the Cardinals or seeing him on the Game of the Week with Dizzy Dean and Buddy Blattner
January 22, 2013
I wanted to share this story of seeing Stan Musial. On a summer day in Webster Groves Mo, I was driving on Laclede Station Road. I pulled behind a Red Cadillac. The license plate had just a number. The number was 6. As the light turned green the Cadillac didn't move. I got out, went to the drivers door and Stan Musial was bringing down his window. He was laughing , he looked at me and said "I ran out of gas sitting right here". What a surprise to see him.I grew up watching him hit baseballs like rockets flying thru the air. I offered to push his car back wards to the curb. He said "I don't want you to hurt yourself." I told him I will be ok. Once the car was at the curb Stan got out and said "Thanks for helping me out, he then introduced himself , he said "I'm Stan Musial". I said To him how I came to as many Cardinal games as I could and told him what a great career he had. I told Stan I was going to get some gas from the gas station that was near by. He asked "Do you have any thing to put the gas in". I told him I had a gas can, I didn't , I bought one from the gas station. When I got back to Stan he was sitting in the drivers seat . There was something about walking as slow as I could as I approached his car. I am looking at Stan Musial waiting for me.I put the gas In the tank and followed him back to the station. He reached in his pocket and wanted to give me a 20 dollar bill, I told him no thank you, you needed it to put gas in your car, he laughed.He did give me a picture card of him standing at home plate in that famous pose, signed his name and I told him the pleasure was all mine , because it really was.
January 22, 2013
My first job was at Musial & Biggies. He was such a nice man. He would often come through the back entrance of his restaurant and personally greet each one of us. I do believe every time I asked him for an autograph, he never hesitated to give me one. As a busboy, I stayed with Musial & Biggies(5 years plus), untill they closed. What memories!!!! A special hello to Pat, who was so nice and understanding to me, Sandy, Chris the waiter, and so many others. Bless you Mr. Muscial & Family.
January 22, 2013
May God's word strengthen you during this difficult time.
January 22, 2013
Mr. Musial, Thanks your for all the great memories, you gave to the city of St. Louis, hundreds of miles in any direction, and all the rest!

I applaud you as a great baseball player, but, I admit your time off the field shines even more in my heart. I always heard you were Catholic, and,visited the sick in the hospital like "Cardinal Glennon Hospital for Children" on Grand.

You are reunited with many, many friends and fans in heaven. but, most of all your Lil. Thanks you to all your family, for so willingly sharing you, with us, all these years.
January 22, 2013
Thank you Stan, for showing us all that there is so much more to being a sports hero than just putting up the numbers and stats... I'll NEVER forget the several times I was fortunate enough to meet him...(and will cherish my autographed picture "to Bill" from him... STAN MADE the Cardinals Nation what it is!!!
January 22, 2013
As a young boy, my parents took me to an open house at the Concordia Turners in south Saint Louis. I was roaming around the facility and when I looked up, there was Stan Musial with harmonica in hand and a big smile on his face. He said hello to me. I've always remembered that simple encounter.
January 22, 2013
i am 57 years old and don't have much time left because of health but one of my fondest memories was my love for my (stan the man) baseball bat when i was a kid , he was an idol to a lot of boys growing up in the world of baseball thank you stan for being such a great person
January 22, 2013
The World and Baseball has lost a great man; Stan the Man.
January 22, 2013
Stan will always be the example of how we should live our lives. He gave the most precious gifts to others, he gave of himself. St. Louis has lost a great citizen and a great Cardinal. My God bless the Musial family as they mourn the loss of their loved one. My God bless St. Louis as we mourn the loss of our greatest citizen.
January 22, 2013
My boyhood idol . . a great athletic talent with humility, and grace. "Stan the Man" is to me the number 1 Major League Baseball personality of the 20th Century.
January 22, 2013
God bless you Stan and your entire family. Say hi to Jack Buck!
January 22, 2013
To the family of Mr. Musial I give my deepest sympathy. He will be greatly missed but the bible for tell's a time when we will see are died loved ones again. Just as we remember them and build more memories with them.
January 22, 2013
Dear Musial Family,

Thanks for sharing your dad and grandpa with the world. My family, and especially my late father,were thrilled and appreciative of his many God given talents. May you find comfort in the days to come. God bless you all.
January 22, 2013
I had an autographed picture of Stan in my office, and it was destroyed in the flood of 93 in Chesterfeild Valley. I got another one, and Stan signed it "Bob-sorry about the flood". That one was stolen from my house, and when he heard about that, he gave me another one saying"Bob,Nothing will happen to this one!". And he was right...I display it prouldly to this day.
There was none better than Stan, as a baseball player and as a great person. We will all miss you.
January 22, 2013
Stan,
You were my first sports hero. I saw you play when I was five years old when my father took me to my first Cardinals game. You are in inspiration to all you know and whose lives you touched. Gabriel has competion in heaven his horn your your harmonica. I think you'll win. God bless you and your family. I'm truly sorry for your loss. RIP.

Baseball lost a great one. Thanks for all the childhood memories of watching and listening to you play ball while growing up in North County.
January 22, 2013
i had the honor to watch him play; and, later, obtain his autograph. He was a genuine hero and person. The world truly was a better place for his presence on it.
January 22, 2013
THANK YOU STAN, FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL MEMORIES THAT YOU GAVE TO SO MANY. DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL FAMILY. YOU HAVE REACH YOUR FINALLY REWARD, REST IN PEACE!!
January 22, 2013
One of if not the greatest baseball player of all time.God rest your soul Stan the Man!
January 22, 2013
I had the pleasure of meeting Stan and his wife at Musial and Biggies Restaurant in St. Louis in December of 1972. My card club was holding our Christmas party that night and I spied the Musials at a table in the corner. I walked over and introduced myself and asked for an autograph. With a smile, Stan the Man whipped out a picture and signed it for my son Brad. What a thrill. He was so kind and such a gentleman. Basebasll has lost a true giant. My sympathies to the Musial family. Your treasured memories of this remarkable man will sustain you.

Dear Musial Family
There are not enough words to express our sorrow at the loss of this wonderful man. One night about 15 years ago my husband and I took our two children to dinner and sitting right next to us was Stan the Man and Lil the woman,
he gave my children autograph cards and we still have them
Thank you for sharing this amazing man with St Louis. He truly is a hero among me. God Bless you all

WE ARE SENDING OUR LOVE,PRAYERS,&CONDOLENCES TO THE MUSIAL FAMILY,FRIENDS,FANS,&ALL WHO KNEW MR. MUSIAL.
January 22, 2013
I never got to see Stan play but as a young boy I listened to baseball games on the radio and later TV. Stan was always one of my favorite players. My condolences to the Musial family. You have lost a good man and we all have lost one of the greatest players to don a uniform. RIP Stan The Man
January 22, 2013
What a wonderful tribute Stan's family wrote for him! Of course the world knows him as a great athlete, but his family highlights the charitable and faithful man that truly made him great and has surely earned him a favored spot in Heaven.
January 22, 2013
You were my dads favorite player. I have a picture of you from the 2011 Worlds Series. Rest in Peace
January 22, 2013
My condolences go out to the entire Musial family. Stan The Man was the greatest Cardinal to ever play the game!! Growing up and following the Cardinals, I have fond memories of attending many games at Sportsman Park watching Stan send many a ball over the right field pavilion roof onto Grand Ave. When he announced his retirement,after the shock wore off literally ran from my house to catch the old Grand Ave street car for the stadium, and was lucky enough to get two tickets for his final game. To this day I still have the scorecard of his final game and a lifetime of memories. A perfect gentleman,family man, businessman, civic leader and a credit to baseball,he truly was the perfect warrior and knight. I know our Lord has welcomed you to play ball in Heaven. As with Lincoln," he now belongs to the ages", and I suspect Baseball will never see one of his caliber again.RIP Mr. Musial,and thanks for the memories.
January 22, 2013
Mr. Musial was a my childhood hero as well as a great man and a wonderful human being. My Dad was a St. Louis Cardinal fan all of his life and every night during the baseball season we often fell asleep listening to their games. We lived in Washington, IN and one of our greatest summertime thrills was traveling to St. Louis on the B&O Railroad's excurisin trains to see Stan Musial and the St. Louis Cardinals play baseball. Please accept our sincere sympathy for your loss of this wonderful, wonderful gentleman and humanitarian.

This world we all live in would be a lot better place if people carried themselves as Stanley Musial did. Let this be a wake up call, if you would. Take a moment and read these tributes. Understand what it is that people saw in this man. How many of us wouldn't like and want these things being said about us. Why is the question. Stan's life can be and should be the blue print we live our lives. Go out of your way to help those who struggle, Stan did. Be kind to one and other. Stan did. So in closing, take a moment and let the true importance of Stan's life really sink in, because folks, he was a once in a life time person you were lucky enough to witness , on and off a baseball field. May God Bless you , and keep you in his loving heart.

My sympathy to the Musial family. The tip of a cap to one of the best both on and off the field. From a sad fan of the New York Yankees.
January 22, 2013
I was fortunate to have grown up in St. Louis from the late 1940s through the early 1960s and followed Stan Musial's career...what a truly great ball player and human being. His legacies are his contributions to the game he loved, the Cardinal organization, his adopted home of St. Louis, and the Nation. He will be missed by all of us who loved "Stan The Man."
January 22, 2013
My Dad got me a Stan Musial 6 Finger baseball glove. Rawlings. I still Have it. Over 50 yrs ago. He is always the man.
January 22, 2013
Thank you!
January 22, 2013
Stan is the reason I love baseball today. I live and breathe Cardinal baseball. He is and always will be the face of the Cardinals. Rest in peace Stan the Man.
January 22, 2013
I was so sad to hear of the death of
your father. Your family was part of my childhood memories. I lived in your old house on Childress and I became friends with Janet. I remember I went to a Cardinal game with you and Stan hit a home run. My sister was born that day.
When your Dad came home he said,"I hit that homerun just for your baby sister." I'll never forget that....such kind words from a wonderful man.
January 22, 2013
Thought's and Prayer's to the Musial Family,Three of my older Brother's,and Myself were,at the game 9-11-1963,when Mr Musial Hit the first Homerun in M.L.B. as a Grandfather,Thank's for all the Memorie's,St Louis will allway's love Stan The Man.
January 22, 2013
Stan was not only a wonderful person but had a wonderful life. I saw the President putting on the Presidential Medal of Freedom around his neck in February 2011 and couldn't think of a better person to have received this recognition. Baseball and the Cardinals will miss him and what he did for baseball and for the community.

My husband and I send our condolences to the Musial family.
January 22, 2013
So hard to get over the loss of such a great man. God bless you forever Stan. Thank you for the memories and the baseballs!
January 22, 2013
With deepest sympathy to the Musial family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.

January 22, 2013
In the 90s I had the privilege and pleasure to meet Stan in St. Pete at tthe Cardinals spring training. Chetted several times with STan the Man and wow what ahuman being he was. so down to earth and how he handled himself even years after his playing days were amazing. A great person who not only brought great integrity to the game but to all he ever did. I say to all sports figure give us just a little of what Stan Musial gave us.Appreciation and dignity with respect for all.
January 22, 2013
I was a member of the Knot Hole Gang at Sportsman's Park, when I first came across Stan, the Man. I literally grew up around him. He was a remarkable baseball player and surely will be missed. My condolences to the family and as a member of the Knights of Columbus, he will be kept in my prayers.

January 22, 2013
My condolences to the Musial family from the Fabick family. My parents were good friends with Stan and Lil and my oldest sister with Janet.

I remember them being at my parents house many times and also seeing Stan at the Stadium Club during Cards games or at the restaurant.

The last time I saw him was at Annie Gunn's for his birthday party (I think it was his 85th). I was in town for a meeting with Don Wiegand and we stopped by to say hello. He was having a great time and even played several tunes on the "harp" for the group out on the patio.

He always had a broad smile and a kind word. A great gentleman indeed. Rest in peace.
January 22, 2013
We should all strive to be the type of person that Mr. Musial was - honest, loyal, devoted and upstanding. If everyone in the world strived to be like him, this world would be a much better place to live. Cardinal Nation and the Musial family lost a legend. Praying for his family during this difficult time. May God bless all of you, now and always.
January 22, 2013
Thanks for the memories. Not only a great baseball player but an honorable family man and a darn good harmonica man. Stan The Man, RIP.
January 22, 2013
My condolences go out to the entire Musial family. Stan The Man was the greatest Cardinal to ever play the game!! Everyone, here in Cardinal Nation, loved him dearly. There will never be another like Stan!!! Opening day will never be quite the same without seeing Stan ride around and the entire stadium standing and cheering for him. He will truly be greatly missed. RIP Stan!!!! Play that wonderful harmonica for all the angels to hear!! The ball team up there just got better!!! God bless!!!

January 22, 2013
Sincere condolences to the Musial family. My Dad, Charles J. Musial,of Willimantic,CT was a great admirer and spoke of Stan to me as a child. We have always wondered if Stan was related to our family.
A baseball great, no one will be able to achieve his status as a ball player.
January 22, 2013
Heaven's Baseball Team just got a lot better! Rest In Paradise and thanks for the gift of Y-O-U.

As a young boy I played Koury League baseball in Ferguson, Mo.. I am left handed, I played first base and my number of White Mullen Mortuary was 6.
I dreamed of being the next Stan Musial.
January 22, 2013
I am so sad to learn of Stan the Man Musial's passing. I remember watching him play on tv when I was little. He was a great man and a great representation for baseball. What a wonderful example for us all. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
January 22, 2013
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Musial Family, friends and fans during this time of farewell. To one of the Greats. I grew up listening and then watching on TV Sta"The Man" work magic with his bat. God mercy and grace to all through His Son Christ Jesus.
January 22, 2013
Stan, thanks for all the great memories. You will be missed. God bless you.
January 22, 2013
Mr. Musial and his family can be very proud of the excellent record he left. What great accomplishments. Now Mr. Musial is resting from all that hard work until Jesus says as he did with Lazarus "Wake Up"
January 22, 2013
My father passed away on the same day as the baseballs perfect warrior and baseballs perfect night. Dad took me to many games and every time Mr. Musial was at the game I heard how he was the greatest cardinal and if he played in a different city he would be considered one of the greatest players of all time. I think what touched me the most was dad meeting Mr. Musial at the Boys Club of St. Louis. Dad said he spoke to every kid like he knew them. Dad had Mr. Musicals. Record on how to hit. My dad and I are left handed as we listened to the record dad acted out the stance and the swing. I will never forget that day. The smile on my dads face and my laughter. On jan 19 two warriors and knights passed through the gates of heaven together. They both will be missed. I know how I feel and I hope the family knows we loved the Man and he will be in my prayers. Thanks for a wonderful memory.
January 22, 2013
Stan:

Always classy, always in our hearts. Thanks for keeping the sense of sportsmanship in big league sports.

Thanks again Stan, for the many memories.
January 22, 2013
In July of 1959, I travelled from Steubenville Ohio to Pittsburgh with the Polish Athletic Club to watch the Cardinals and Pirates play. Before the game The entire contingency met with Stan Musial on the infield at Forbes Field. My father, who was President of the Club presented a Plaque to Mr. Musial for his positive contribution as a model American citizen of Polish ancestry. That was one of the greatest moments of my youth and I cherish it to this day. Thanks Stan the Man and God bless you and your entire family.
January 22, 2013

January 22, 2013
God Bless you Mr. Musial. My family and I met you after my cancer surgery by happenstance. How fortunate it was for me, as a lifelong Cardinal fan, to meet the greatest Cardinal ever at a rough time in my life. My family cherishes that moment. You are a sweet and kind man who is with his beloved wife, all our loved ones and in the safe hands of God.

At the age of 7 I was just starting to listen to the Cards and Browns broadcasts. When Stan came up in Sept 1941 and had a great month it galvanized my Cardinal fanship which has only grown over the next 71 years. RIP STAN GO CARDS
January 21, 2013
I grew up in California and my Dad who grew up in St. Louis loved baseball and his hero, and my brother's was Stan the Man. We saw him play the SF Giants when I was young and I remember how much everyone loved and admired him. He was a true professional and a wonderful athlete. He's in heaven with my dad now!
January 21, 2013
An American hero with no blemishes. It was an honor to grow up during his great baseball career; but baseball was just a small part of his greatness. God bless him.
January 21, 2013
My love of baseball will always be associated with Stan the Man when my mom and aunt would take me to Sportsmans Park on ladies day and I would see my favorite player in action, Stan never disappointed his fans ever. Rest in Peace.
January 21, 2013
Janet, Joe and I were so sorry to hear about your dad. The world has lost a great dad, grandfather, and baseball player. God Bless your family.

This morning on my way to work, I stopped by to give my respects to "THE MAN" at his statue at Busch Stadium.
I placed a flag by the side of all the other tributes, looked up at his face and whispered, "I hope to meet you in heaven".
I gave him a thumbs up and went on my way.
R.I.P. Mr. Musial.

Rip Stan The Man. You will be greatly missed such a great person to represent St. Louis. Never got to see you play but I sure wish I did seeing your amazing stats. My dad made sure I knew who Stan the man was and I will never forget seeing you in St. Louis all those times. Rip #6. My condolences to all of his family and friends.
January 21, 2013
BATTER UP, WAY UP! WE THANK YOU!
January 21, 2013
To the family of Stan Musial, I offer my sympathy and prayers for your loss. As a child, I always tried to emulate Stan's crouch and hitting ability. The best that I could do is copy the crouch. He was always my idol, not just as a great ballplayer, but because of his love of his family and of the Lord, who he followed throughout his career and life. In a sporting world full of takers, he was the exception: he gave back to his state and country for his entire life. He is now looking at fast balls that are as big as basketballs to him again. May God bless and keep him forever. We will never see his kind again.
January 21, 2013
i am sending a fond farewell from two very loyal and departed stan musial fans, my own beloved father rocky and my aunt colleen. you will be missed, marceena mclaughlin, laramie,wyoming

January 21, 2013
My boyhood hero. Thanks to an extra special man for all the wonderful memories. In my den I have photos of my self admiring his Hall of Fame items, a photo of his playing gear, and, best of all, an autographed baseball that one of his nieces was nice enough to ask him to sign and dedicate to me. I'll see them every day until we meet in heaven.
January 21, 2013
To the Musial family- Very sorry to hear of hear of the passing of Stan. Thanks for sharing him with us and all of baseball. He has left us all with good memories.

To Family and Friends of Stan:

My farther George Ammon grew up with Stan in Donora, PA. Dad would tell us many stories about Stan. One in particular I wish to share: Our family moved to Tucson Arizona in 1948, in the 50,s when Saint Louis had spring training in Tucson our dad would attend when he could. When he saw Stan he would just shout his name and Stan would shout back “George” without even seeing his face … that is a friend.

About ten years ago Stan was in Phoenix signing autographs at a sports card show, my wife and I were able to see Stan and show him a picture of my dad and mom and I from the early 40,s … it was so good to meet Stan in person.
January 21, 2013
Dick, we did time together at Ft.Riley (I was a friend of Joe Cellini's). I want to extend my sincere condolences and let you know that in your father we all have lost someone special.

God bless the most wonderful example of a man and sports figure. See you on the other side!
January 21, 2013
My condolences to the family of this great human being. I remember Mr.Musial when I first met him back in 1951.At that time I was a "bell-boy" at the Hotel where the visiting St.Louis Cardinals team stayed while playing their series with the then N.Y.Giants. Of every single player of any team in the National League Mr. Musial was the only one who say hello and converse with me while doing my jub as a bell-boy. When his team lost a game he will talk to me about what he should have done different to help his team. When they won he mentioned the errors made by the other team as having help his team on the victory.In essence he was the man for all people and share his views about a game with those who loved baseball in those years.Those times are now history but I shall alsays remember Mr.Musial as my favorite (and nicest) player of all times. If there is a baseball league in heaaven I am sure he will be a firt "pick" by any team.
January 21, 2013
My late grandfather took me on a train trip from Memphis to St. Louis in September 1963. He said it was an early birthday present, since I would be turning 6 in October. It is one of my earliest memories as a child. I was going to see his favorite ballplayer. Now 50 or so years later I am crying at my computer as I type this. Stan was that Man.
January 21, 2013
I've never known a world without Stan Musial. You did so much for my family that could never be repayed. They loved you and Lil. And I will always love you and be grateful that you were in our lives...
January 21, 2013
I grew up in St. Louis, and my father, being a huge baseball fan, would often take my brothers and me to Sportsman's Park to see Stan, Red, Solly, and the other greats play the sport we all loved so much. My first real glove was a Stan Musial glove. I had two of them over the course of my childhood. Oh, how I wish I still had them. Stan was always my hero. I, along with so many others, so admired him. Rest in peace Stan. You will be greatly missed.
January 21, 2013
Growing up in Southern California, baseball was always a hot topic and all the fans had nothing but good to say about Stan the man - he was a blessing; may he rest in peace. I hope his family knows how respected he was.
January 21, 2013
*A man for the ages, Stan Musial was my first hero in life and was still my hero the day he passed away. His skills as a baseball player were only exceeded by his skills as a human being. This is a role model for all of us. Thanks for being you, Stan Musial, you made mny life better.
January 21, 2013
There's got to be a baseball team in Heaven. Stan will be orchestrating every position and every play. The team will be called Heaven's Angels. There will be no reporters, no managers and yes, no pay! But oh the joy of a bigger than life captive audience including Lil Musial in the stands. Rest in peace forever
Stan, our hero...you will live in our hearts and never be forgotten. Thanks for all the wonderful memories and all the goodness you brought to St. Louis.Love from all the Russo families.

January 21, 2013
To the Musial Family,
It is with great sorrow that I express my sincere condolences to you with the passing of Mr. Musial.
As a young boy growing up in the Allston neighborhood of Boston, I played Little League baseball for four years. For two of those years I played on the Cardinals, and my favorite player was Mr. Musial, along with Ted Williams. Not that many years ago, I wrote Mr. Musial a letter, and to my surprise, I sent me an autograph photo, which is displayed proudly in my den. In each photo I see of Mr. Musial he is always smiling, a warm smile and sincere. Mr. Musial will live for always, good men always do. May God be with you and God Bless Mr. Musial.

Dear Stanley F. Musial Family:

Our sincere and deepest sympathy with the loss of your beloved Stan. We hope the sweet memories of your beloved Stan will always be comforting to you and your family. We know that someone so special and talented (Stan) will never be forgotten, and the happiest of times that you all shared with Stan will always be remembered.

There really are no words to soothe the loss that all of you are feeling so deeply for Stan. May it comfort all of you to remember that Stan has left the very best of himself behind ....."all of you".

"The world has lost another wonderful person". May God hold Stan in the palm of his hand and give him peace and eternal rest.

Our Mother Ann Petrus DeBerardinis attended school with Stan at the Donora High School and always spoke fondly of him. She always spoke of him being so kind, a good person, handsome, and being so talented in playing baseball.

We will never forget Stan and all the years that he played baseball and that he never forgot Donora, Pennsylvania. Each time that we ride over the "The Stanley F. Musial Bridge" in Donora we will think of him. Thanks for the wonderful memories "Stan the Man".

Take care and you all are in our thoughts and prayers during this very sad time for you and your family.

With our sincere and deepest sympathy,
DeBerardinis Family, Donora, PA
January 21, 2013
A true man.
January 21, 2013
As a child growing up in Southern Indiana and having family in St. Louis, it was great to travel to the old Sportsmans Park to watch Stan The Man play. Some of my fondest memories of baseball--and to this day, I am a HUGE Cardinals fan--include seeing Stan hit home runs from that left-handed corkscrew stance at home plate. He will be missed.
January 21, 2013
rip the man of all men
January 21, 2013
I had the pleasure to meet Stan Musial on a cruise back in January of 1986. He was a wonderful storyteller and a very nice man. He was also one of the best baseball players in the history of the game. Rest in peace, Stan-you always will be The Man.
January 21, 2013
We knew him and we loved him. Stan is still the best there is.

So long Stand...
January 21, 2013
Durring my baseball days I tried to duplicate his corkscrew batting stance. I was told many times that I was no Stan Musial. He is my hero and i'm 81 years old. I have his autograft ball that I cherish.
January 21, 2013
Growing up in Wasington, PA (outside of Pittsburgh), the Pirates dominated all baseball conversations! However, our next-door neighbor was Stan Musial's aunt (Mrs. Butella), and oh, how proud she was of her nephew! She convinced us kids that "Stan the Man" was the greatest ballplayer ever, despite playing for St. Louis!
January 21, 2013
Stan Musial was my idle and always will be for the rest of my life. I am now 77 yrs old
January 21, 2013
Stan the Man was and will always be the Cardinal of all times. There will never be another like him. We, the fans, will never forget him. It has always been such a thrill to watch him both as a player and as an ambassador to the Cardinals. RIP Stan.
January 21, 2013
i grew up listion to stan the man making the big hit. he was always gitting the best average of the year. he was a fine man and will never be forgoten
January 21, 2013
I saw Stan play for the first time in 1947. When I was turning 70, my daughter contacted Mrs. Musial to see if her husband would sgn a birthday card for me. She actually spoke to Mrs. Musial who did in fact have her husband sign a card for me. I will treasure that forever, along with the seat from the old Busch Stadium. Both Stan and his wife...a truly class act. RIP
January 21, 2013
I am so happy that my Mom and Dad took my brothers and myself to the ballpark. Great times and terrific memories of baseball in St. Louis during the 50's and 60's. So here's to you Mr. Musial....thanks for the great memories on and off the field. May STAN THE MAN rest in peace.
January 21, 2013
January 21, 2013
So sorry to hear of Stan's passing. He was my all-time favorite baseball player. A true gentleman and he played the game the way it should be played. May he rest in peace.
January 21, 2013
I was fortunate to grow up in St. Louis while Stan while still playing. It goes without saying that he was my hero.
January 21, 2013
Stan was my childhood HERO. My Daddy took me and my best friend to St. Louis for a game with the Brooklyn Dodgers and Stan hit a home run. To me he is the most underated player of all time. I will miss you and my prayer go out to the Musial family.
January 21, 2013
Go with God, Stashu. Thanks for all the memories. But most of all you set an example of how a man should conduct himself.
January 21, 2013
For over 60 years, never a disappointment. Frank F.
January 21, 2013
January 21, 2013
Thanks Stan for all the great things you did for baseball and our country.
January 21, 2013
I was a cub fan all of my life,but you were my idol. Forget banks, ruth, dimaggio, cobb & williams, stan musial was the greatest player, gentleman & ambassador to baseball. I remember when i was a young cub fan, i'd go to wrigley field to here the cub fans give
you a loder hand than any cub would get,
thanks for the memories stan.
January 21, 2013
As a kid growing up in Pittsburgh during the forties....Stan Musial was my baseball idol! When the Cards were in town...I was at Forbes field when possible. I always asked my self....why Stan was not a Pirate? My sincere condolences to the Musial family....R.I.P. Stash! Ed Portka
January 21, 2013
I never saw Stan play but to this young lad growing up in the 60's and to this day Mr. Musial will forever be in my humble opinion the greatest MLB player of all time.
I never met Stan but after reading his biography Stan Musial: "The Man's" own story, as told to Bob Broeg, so many times as a child and until the book was lost, I came to feel as if he was a friend and family member.
RIP Stanley Frank Musial, you will be missed but never forgotten.
January 21, 2013
Iam so sorry for the loss of your loved one. May the God of comfort be with you during this time. Isaiah 59:1

I wanted to express our families deepest sympathy to the Musial family- We grew up watching and listening to him always-He seemed to me to be a part of our family- A great ballgamer and even more a great man!! "The Man"-
I will always remember him, especially him retirement day- Back then, there was very look recording equipment for the public.I had set up for 19" B?W TV and a polarid camera. I thoguht I get a great pic of the ceremony, and all I got when developed was a blank TV screen and TV itself. This is my time caption of the picture and he always reminds me of my dad and listening to Cards games on the radio.
RIP and you will be missed by all of us-

Thank you Stan for all you have done for Cardinal Nation, for St. Louis,and baseball. The world has lost a precious gift. May memories comfort all that have been left behind. You will always be the one and only "The Man". God bless you.
January 21, 2013
"The Man" became my childhood hero in 1958 as I listened to the radio broadcasts of the Cardinals' games in my hometown of Jackson, MS. I was fortunate to see him play at old Sportsman's Park in 1962. Beyond his considerable diamond skills, Stan was the epitome of class, on and off the field. Blessings on his family.
January 21, 2013
What an amazing man. I wish there were more like him in this world. We are fortunate to have had him during our lifetime. Kudos to you Mr.Musial!
January 21, 2013
I remember when Stan came to St. Stanislaus festival. Hespent the entire time talking with his fans and autografing everything back in 1986.I have one and will always thank God for such a great man. Pennsylvania and St. Louis claim him as their own.
January 21, 2013
To the Musial Family:
As so many have stated "Stan the Man" is a legend. His history of hard work, loyalty, and high morals added so much to his baseball career. His wonderful obituary proves all the points that an "Ideal" player should have. His life is also a tribute to his Polish-American heritage.
The fact that Stan was born in Pennsylvania only strengthened our admiration of him, as my family (including myself) were born and raised in a hard working, honest, community outside of Wilkes-Barre.
Our state will always remain proud of him,

God bless him and his family.

I was an evening hostess for a short time back in the mid 70's at Stan Musial and Biggies over on Oakland. On occasion Mr. Musial would stop by, and would walk around the restaurant greeting the patrons, shaking hands, and handing out autographed photos. He was always, always upbeat and smiling -a perfect gentleman. Thank you for the wonderful memories and being a part of so many lives.
January 21, 2013
My father KirkwoodHS'38 and Mother the old BlewittHS'40 were avid STL Cards fans
and it is still reflected in my allegiance this day to the Cardinals and to the memories of seeing a 'total' man play baseball and contribute to society.
God bless the Musial family.
January 21, 2013
~RIP~ Thanks for the memories Mr Musial, you sir are & always will be a class act.

We give our codolenes to the family, at psalms 90:10 In themsevles the days of our years are seventy years; and if because of special mightiness they are eighty years, Mr. Musial was one of the mighty ones.
January 21, 2013
Stan Musial was my idol growing up on and off of the field. When you think of Cardinal baseball, he and Jack Buck are the two that come to mind. I remember going to the old Stan and Biggies and after a game he would come to the restaurant in a suit and always was gracious to me as a kid he gave me an autograph picture. This is one of my cherished memory of him. There will never be another one like him. St. Louis was and is so lucky to have him as one of ours. Stan I know that God will welcome you in heaven. Thanks for being part of my life and I will say prayers for your family.
January 21, 2013
First and foremost,my sympathies to the Musial family.Born in 1959 at st. marys in e. st. louis , I remember laying on the floor with my dad and listening on the radio. What a great human being. Elaine Meares

I was born and raised in E.St.Louis. Remember my first game around five years old, Cards vs Browns. I was at the game when he retired; and have a ball Stan autographed for me at one of the "Ball-B-Que's". God bless his family.

My Dad passed away almost a month ago. He was an avid baseball fan whose favorite player of all time was Stan the Man. Stan will have an entourage of folks waiting to greet him and I know my Daddy will be first in line.

What a great guy. A TRUE Cardinal. A total class act. Rest In Peace "Stan The Man".
January 21, 2013
God rest your soul, Stan the Man. You are a true American hero.
January 21, 2013
I can remember my Grandpa Jess taking me to Sportsmans Park and watching Stan play. My grandpa always said that number 6 was PURE CLASS. I feel blessed to hav seen him play back then!!
January 21, 2013
My father Leo "Naliborski" Nelson's favorite St. Louis Cardinal baseball player was Stan Musial. Leo played baseball for DeAndreis High School and for many teams in the St. Louis area during the 50s and 60s. He grew up near Sportsman Park.

He was diagnosed with Ahlzeimers disease in 2007 and passed away in October 2011 at about the time The Cards won the World Series in 2011. During his stay in a nursing home we would play catch and I would ask him who his favorite player was and he would say "Stan Musial" some of his last words was Stan Musial. In photos of my father in high school he was always #6. He loved his Cardinals and Stan Musial. One of his last gestures when he heard St. Louis advanced to the World Series in 2011 he raised a baseball in salute to the St. Louis Cardinals.

I hope he gets a chance to meet his hero in heaven and to play catch with him.

Last year while at a Wedding in St. Louis we visited his statues at Busch Stadium and took alot of pictures. Im glad we had an opportunity to see Stans
statue and Busch Stadium.

Rest in Peace Stan Musial.

First Williams, now Musial. Truly the end of an era. Thanks for all the great memories.
January 21, 2013
I was just 10 in 1957 when Stan Musial won another batting title, but the Cardinals lost out to the Milwaukee Braves for the pennant. The only Cardinal who could consistently hit the Braves' ace, Warren Spahn, was Stan Musial. About 10 years ago, I finally got my chance to meet and chat with Stan and he chuckled and said, "Yeah, yeah, I hit "Spahny" pretty good!" He sure did, it seems he hit his lifetime average of .331 against Warren Spahn, one of the greatest lefties ever. St. Louis's greatest citizen and greatest sports figure, the great "Man" is gone. There's a lot of old guys like me with damp eyes. RIP Stan Musial, there won't be another.

Stan, you will forever be our hero. As a family of great Cardinal fans, we know you are one of a kind, "in your own league." My Grandpa was a good friend of Red Sch., and our uncle, who passed away last month, was a pitcher for the Pirates in the 1950's. I'm sure they are talking baseball( and maybe playing) in Heaven. Thanks for the great memories.
January 20, 2013
Stan, rest in peace. you were always the Man. The Horton boys.

Rip Stan the man!!!
January 20, 2013
I was born and raised a Cardinal fan in St. Louis until joining the Navy. I
always looked up to "The Man" as the greatest Cardinal and a premier role
model. I was always #6 on my softball teams. As fate would have it I married
a daughter of Jim Maloney, the last man to pitch to Musial. Musial struck
out once (not easy to do) and then got his last two hits against my father
in law. Jim spoke very highly of Stan and gave me a signed photo of the two
meeting after the game. We will miss you and peace be with you Mr. Musial
and family.

I hadn't even moved to StL yet in 1970, I was here for a job interview. That night my dad took me and some of his business friends to Musial and Biggies on Oakland. Next thing I know, one of the guys goes to the back of the restaurant and comes back with an autographed ball: "To Jim, Best wishes, Stan Musial" I couldn't even eat desert! Of course I still have the ball.
January 20, 2013
Thanks for all the memories of my childhood listening to the games with my dad..He was a great player, but even a greater man. My thoughts and prayers are with his family today.
January 20, 2013
As a weekend season ticket holder in 1999 & 2000, I got to meet Jack Buck and Stan Musial at the same time. I was lucky to have my photo of both of them with me in the middle. It's a photo I have always appreciated and now it even means more to me. RIP Stan. The ballpark will never be the same without you there especially on Opening Day!
January 20, 2013
R. I. P. Stan. A great ballplayer and even better man. God Bless you.

What a Great Ball Player Stan Was in his Time,my childhood hero when I was growing up , listening to the ball games on the radio back in the 40's .I was lucky enough to go to ST Louis several times with my parents to see the games. what an exciting time that was to see my favourite ball player in Sportmans park at that time . seen several of Stans home runs go over the right field stands on to grand ave.what a sight it was to see Stan take his stance at the plate always a little wiggle,and coils up ready to strike. Stan made his mark in St Louis . May Stan Rest in Peace.

I was born and raised in southeast missouri and, in the mid 50,s,went to a cardinal game in st.louis. after the game, I was able to go to Stan and Biggies and meet Mrs. Musial. Stan had autographed a picture and baseball for us and I still have both. God bless those of us who were able to listen to on the radio and watch this great man do what he did best. God bless the Musial family-you were truly blessed with greatness.
January 20, 2013
One of my favorite baseball players of all time. "Stan the Man Musial". You will never be replaced. Rest in Peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with all the family and fans of "The Man." He was baseball for St. Louis but he was an even better human being.

Stan will be missed and NEVER forgotten! We love you Stan!

When I was very young I was VERY ill. For MONTHS I could not leave my bed. It was during that time I became an AVID Cardinal Fan as my sister taught me how to keep score. The Omaha Cardinals were the farm team and the Cardinal games were carried on radio. You are ' MY SPECIAL BASEBALL HERO" RIP "STAN THE MAN" !
January 20, 2013
Was one of those fans from afar! Grew up listening on a small portable AM radio as Harry and Jack gave us all a "closed eye word picture" of Stan just doing what he always did. Hit one that was back, way back, could be, might be, Holy Cow...(Jack)can you believe that, what a Man!

Stan just hit one just past the Pearly Gates...
January 20, 2013
Stan Musial showed a nation how to hit and play baseball and how to be a outstanding man and role model. When the Braves left Milwaukee I became a Cardinals fan (and still am)largely because of Stan Musial; I cherish the memories of seeing him play at Milwaukee County Stadium in the late '50s and early '60s. His memory will live on in our mortal world. Some say that where The Man has gone now the field is always green, the sun is always shining, and there's a double header everyday. Imagine the other ballplayers already in heaven greeting him with his uniform, glove and bat. Rest in peace, Stan Musial, and thank you for showing us what competitiveness, class and dignity is all about.

January 20, 2013
As a boy I checked the sports section every day to compare Williams vs Musial. Were there two better hitters in the majors.
January 20, 2013
To the family of "Stan the Man". I grew up in the Boston area in the 60s where there was no National League baseball teams - the heavy hitters of the Red Sox (Ted Williams, Carl Yaztremski) and the dreaded NY Yankees (Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris) dominated baseball when and where we lived. In the summertime, our neighborhood kids would play 3-4 baseball games a day, every day. If you had a great day of hitting, you were referred to as "Stan The Man" - not Ted, Yaz, Roger or Mickey. Thank you so much for being an incredible human being and sportsman. Your legend will live way, way beyond your physical presence. Signed with admiration and respect.

One of the thrills of my childhood was having Stan Musial sign my scorecard after a Cardinal game. Great man! Great loss. My prayers for, and sympathy to, his family.
January 20, 2013
I still have my mom's copy of Stan's autobiography signed by co-author Bob Broeg. As a native St. Louisan and a 4th generation Cardinals fan I also feel a great personal loss in Mr. Musial's passing. Requiescat in pace.
January 20, 2013
I have seen him play many of times at forbes field . He was a great player
January 20, 2013
A man's whose legacy goes beyond athleticism and sportsmanship, it leaves us a standard from which to aspire as human beings. Thank you Mr. Musial for teaching us that it is not what you do for a living, it is what you do with your life!!!
January 20, 2013
Rest in Peace.
January 20, 2013
A man of integrity and class. I admired Mr Musial on and off the field. I also was fortunate enough to see him play. I am a lefty and heard about it a lot when I was a kid. I could usually stop the abuse by saying so is Stan the Man.
January 20, 2013
"The Man" will be missed.
January 20, 2013
It was great listening to baseball games with my grandfather. We always knew it was going to be a great game when Stan Musial came up to bat! I feel a great loss on hearing of your passing. To your family and friends, I send my most sincere condolences.

A first class guy, the greatest cardinal ever lived and ever will be , younger players don't hold a candle switching teams for greediness , met him about 10 years ago , very nice down to earth guy, baseball lost a legend , he's with the other greats now, Ruth , Gehrig Cobb ect
January 20, 2013
I'll never forget the all-star game of 1955. As my best friend and I sat down to watch the game on TV, I predicted Stan would hit a home run. He didn't let me down, as his homer in the 12th won the game!
January 20, 2013
Harmonica lessons, anyone? Stan the Man was one of a kind. God bless his family & thundering herd of friends wherever they may be. Take care.
January 20, 2013
One of my most cherished childhood memories is sitting the the left field stands, that close to Stan Musial. So glad I was a kid while Stan was playing ball! Don't know if there will ever be any one like him again.

Rest in Peace Mr. Stan Musial. Baseball is great, but you made it even better.

January 20, 2013
I'll always remember my plane flight from Chicago to St. Louis, back in '02. Ozzie had just been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Stan and his lovely wife Lillian were also on the plane. Because of a flight delay, Stan asked if it would be all right with the crew and the passengers if he could play his harmonica. Of course we all were thrilled to see Stan and listen to him play. And could he play! What a wonderful man he was!
January 20, 2013
A fine man, husband, father and ball player. You will be remembered fondly and missed often. Rest in peace sir.

I started out playing Little League baseball back in about 1955-6, and Stan Musial was coming up to be a World Hero. We had wood Louisville Slugger Bats, and the one most of us used was Stan Musial's bat(name on it) for good luck. I'm very sorry to see/read of his passing. May GOD be with his Family and many, many friends. You deserve the rest Mr. 'Stan Musial'. But your memories will live on with 'all' of us!! Thanks for the memories!!

Stanley Frank Musial, from Donora PA, the "Donora Greyhound" as I remember from my '50s baseball card collection. One of a kind and a real gentleman. He use to "moider" my Dodgers and the fans would yell out; "Here comes THAT man again". RIP, my baseball hero.
January 20, 2013
The following is from a letter I sent to George Vecsey, author of Stan's biography, after he wrote a column in the New York Times on Stan's birthday several years ago.


Reading your wonderful piece on Stan Musial reminded me of another Eastern European from Western Pennsylvania, my grandfather, Michael Buchta.

Grandpa Mike was born in Galacia, and migrated to Lyndora, Pennsylvania. He lived on the same street as Andy Warhol's family, worked in a steel mill, and played first base on the company team, a 5'5" clean-up hitter.

And like Stan, Grandpa was born on November 22...in 1894. And he never celebrated his birthday after 1963.

I remember when Grandpa's 70th birthday approached in 1964. My mom and her sisters wanted to have a party for him, but he said. "No cake. No cards. My president died. Sad day. No more celebrate."

And he never celebrated his birthday again. Not for the 28 more years he lived.

I have always found it impressive that western Pennsylvania has both some of the toughest athletes and some of the lowest crime rates in America. Perhaps it comes from a culture that expects you to work hard, play hard, but play fair.

Yes, happy birthday, dear Stanley. But if you say no cake, no card, sad day, no more celebrate, I understand. But I sincerely hope you break one more record, one held by grandpa Mike: 98 years and 8 months.
January 20, 2013
He was a wonderful role model for young people. I will miss him.
January 20, 2013
To the Greatest Cardinal of them all and my boyhood idol. God be with you.
The Man.
January 20, 2013
I remember vividly listening to the radio in 1954, when Stan Musial hit those five home runs. It was one of the most exciting days of my life. Later, in the 1970's we lived in St. Louis and one Sunday afternoon, our neighbor called and said, "Do you want to come over and meet Stan Musial?" OMG What a thrill! I only wished my father could have been with me. Mr. Musial was so warm and gracious, just as I pictured him listening to all those ball games, back on our farm in Macon County, Mo. His inspiration continued long past his playing days.
January 20, 2013
Here lies baseball's perfect warrior
Here lies baseball's perfect knight.

My hero for 61 years, RIP.
January 20, 2013
Stan you were an insperation to me as well as my mother in law R.I.P. AS SHE NEVER MISSED A CARDINAL GAME.you were her favorite [red bird] thank you for everything. you truly were the man! say hi to her and the babe for me in the baseball field in the sky. GOD BLESS YOU!
January 20, 2013
Look up "HUMILITY" in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of Stan Musial. Quiet consistency...all he ever did was his job...the player who, when you discuss greatest ever, makes you say, "Oh, yeah, that guy." Godspeed.
January 20, 2013
A life well lived. A tip of my Cardinal cap to you Mr. Musial.
January 20, 2013
My hero...
January 20, 2013
Growing up in the Rochester NY area that was the Cardinals AAA farm club,my family grew to love and appreciate Mr. Musial for his baseball prowess and his goodness.My parents took me to see him his last year at the Polo Grounds where the Mets were playing. it's one of the most memorable experiences of my life. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Musial family,he has gone home to Lil.......
January 20, 2013
Stan: your God given talent made all of baseball proud,the way you led your life made God proud! Mickey said Stan was the greatest,that says it all! RIP
January 20, 2013
I don't know much about sports never really being into it but reading Stan's obituary made me feel so proud. A humble, Scandal free person. THAT to me is the kind of person kids should look up to for a hero. Not whats out there now.
I am also so proud that is he Polish and originally from Pennsylvania as I am.
My Deepest Sympathy to all his family.
January 20, 2013
A Life well Lived.RIP
January 20, 2013
"Here stands baseball's perfect warrior. Here stands baseball's perfect knight."

What more is there to say?

Stan was the man. I grew up listening to his plays. Truly a shining star who's light will remain shining for decades to come. I am sure his is giving St Peter some tips. Bless the family his leaves behind.

January 20, 2013
Mr. Musial was a man with such class and integrity. So sorry to hear about the loss of a great man - not just a great ball player. And I want to thank him for coming to my grandfather's funeral many years ago. I hope he and my grandpa Ray Sanders can meet for a cold Budweiser up there in heaven!
January 20, 2013
Rest in peace "Stan the Man" you'll always be remembered
January 20, 2013
I remember driving from Topeka, Kansas to St. Louis with my parents to see Stan, and the Cardinals who were playing the Dodgers that day. It was 1948.
January 20, 2013
I was told Stan was my great great grandma Blance Musials cousin, even if not I would be proud to be a relative of this caring talented athlete. He was well thought of and a kind man from all I have read. He sent a letter and picture to my little brother when he was in grade school to help him prove he was a relative of Stan The Man to his school friends, though it is only hearsay. I thank him for being Andrews hero and many other little boys and girls. We need decent men to look up to in this world. Sympathy to his children and family members. YHWH bless and keep you all.
January 20, 2013
May God comfort your family in this sad time and may your soul rest in peace. You made our hometown of Donora proud.
January 20, 2013
Stan the Man. You are baseball's best. In today's world of big money players and questionable ethics you outshine them all. You are the high standard that baseball needs to remember what a REAL player is and stands for. Condolences to your family.
January 20, 2013
I was at the park. Boy Scout day 1958. It was one of the most memorable days of my life. You,the MAN. Hit your 3,000th hit. You may be gone but your memories cherished my millions forever.
God Bless You .
January 20, 2013
What d'ya say, what d'ya say? I say we've lost the greatest MAN who ever picked up a bat. My prayers are with the Musial family and also Cardinal Nation.

Stan Musial proved that nice guys don't finish last...thanks for the memories.
January 20, 2013
As a kid growing up in Donora,loving to play and follow baseball, Stan Musial was a role model not only as a player, but as a person to many. I know he remains mine. RIP Mr. Musial.
January 20, 2013
Dear Musial Family:

Stan is my favorite all time Cardinal. I watched him play at Sportsman's park many times. Also on TV and the radio the day he hit 5 homers. My Dad also came from Poland and worked in the steel mills in Pittsburgh before moving to St. Louis. I have been a Cardinal fan for 75 years and watched every game last year on TV. I have a Stan shirt that I treasure. Accept my condolences. God Bless. Al Wier
January 20, 2013
we will miss you Stan,I've been a fan since I was 9 years old ( I'm 66 years old now) and when ever I thought of Baseball your name was always on my mind. I will miss you Baseball will never be the same and will never forget you.
January 20, 2013
Stan the (Gentle) Man. What Joy and thrills he brought (memory will continue) to all over the years. He truly played the game. Among the last of the GREAT GENERATION.
Thank you kind Sir!

To all family members and friends. Please accept our deepest sympathies.
As the days and weeks pass and as you attempt to return to life's routine, may you feel comforted by the love, presence and support of Christ Jesus and of family and friends.

Those we love, leave us gifts in the form of memories that no one can take away. May we cherish such gifts in the days to come. May they bring comfort to your hearts. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

May Christ Jesus Smile upon you, bless and hold you tight.

May the Lord watch over You and I until we meet again. Genesis 31:49
January 20, 2013
you are the greatest R.I.P.MIC
January 20, 2013
I was first introduced to Stan in August 1957, and he has been my hero ever since. Stan was the ultimate ball player as well as the consummate gentleman. St. Louis will always miss him.
January 20, 2013
Most people do not understand the tradition of Baseball in STL unless you're from their. It is CARDINALS tradition!! Stan Musial is and always will be the Cardinals!! The "MAN" was graceful, gentle and warm with all the heroics of a giant. It will not be the same on opening day seeing the traditional Clydesdale's followed by Stan the Man!
I think this year on opening day when family and friends say " let's meet at the Musial statue" say thank you to the "MAN" for he made Cardinal baseball for what it is today.
Rest in Peace Stan! God Bless You.
January 20, 2013
REST IN PEACE STAN. ALWAYS A GREAT PLAYER AND GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT A PRO ATHLETE SHOULD BE. YOU ARE THE MAN.
January 20, 2013
The year was 1963 & The LA Dodgers had a 3 game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals & they were set to play a 3 game series to determine who will go to the World Series vs the NY Yankees. In game # 1 The score was tied 1-1 when Tommy Davis led off the bottom of the 9th with a game winning homerun, Gm # 2 saw the Dodgers once again win thanks to a homerun hit by rookie Dick Nen in his first Major league game. The Dodgers won game 3 and swept the series knocking the Carinals out of contetntion. The Dodgers beat the Yankees 4-0 to win the World Series. Stan the Man, Sandy Koufax & the late Don Drysdale were the big players for both teams when the Dodgers played the Cardinals. How ironic it was Stan's last season & the following season The Cardinals played the Yankees in the 64 World Series & beat them 4-3.Stan missed by one year of getting another ring. A true icon who will be missed by his loyal teammates, friends & Family.
Stan will always be remembered by the way he wiggled his fanny when batting at the plate.
January 20, 2013
Stan "The Man" Musial showed everyone how it should be done...as an athlete and as a man. May he rest in peace, and may God Bless his family and all those close to him!
January 20, 2013
You can not grow up in St. Louis and not love Stan the Man...I came from a family of Cardinals fans...still have his picture from going to Stan and Biggies...where he would greet all the tables, especially if there were kids...he seemed larger than life to me! My sympathies to the Musial family. Powodzenia, Stan!!
January 20, 2013
"Stan the Man", may you rest in peace. May today's players learn by your example and all tje others great players before them. It is a sad day in baseball in yiu leaving this world.
January 20, 2013
Mr. Musial,thank you so much. You really were a true role model for the kids of any generation, but especially mine. God Bless. Sleep well.

Stan Musial will long be remembered for his exceptional career as a professional athlete. What is much more important, however, is the way "Stan the Man" lived his life with kindness and a humbled and grateful heart. Baseball fans will miss him; but we should all honor him by striving h to live our lives with gratitude and grace.
January 20, 2013
What a great great man. RIP

I hope some of today's PRIMA DONNA Jocks, will take a second to view and comprehend, what a GREAT CLASS ACT!! was all about. REST in Peace Great One.
January 20, 2013
My deepest sympathy to the family. I was born in St. Louis which will forever be my home. My father loved Stan the Man and I enjoyed many wonderful memories at Musial & Biggies. He was the greatest and will forever be remembered in our hearts. May he rest in peace. I thank him for everything he gave to the game and the true example of a gentleman.
January 20, 2013

January 20, 2013
I remember seeing stan playing for the first time in 1965 at the old stadium. I told my father hey look dad this stan guy is as good as the mick. My father told me son you are looking at one of the best players of all-time. Well the rest is history. I've been a cardinal fan ever since & still am at 52 yrs. Old!!!!!!
January 20, 2013
Stan, you were so marvelous, fantastic and great as a baseball pioneer!! You were one of the best players in MLB history, with all the joy, love, and faith in your heart.

I got the Cardinals on my transistor radio back in Ohio in those early 60's and STAN was THE MAN that kept me up.. I also am left handed and though i never 'corked screwed' my body I would come to the plate and pretend that STAN THE MAN was batting.. Thanks Mr. Musial for your time on this Earth.. Now they are waiting for you in Heaven and your on deck...

January 20, 2013
Worked for Stan's Clearwater Beach Hilton in Florida in the '70's as the GM's secretary. Had the privilege of meeting and talking to him whenever he was in town. Always had a kind word and ready smile! A very gracious gentleman! Condolences to the family.
January 20, 2013
Stan, RIP. No matter were it at the Hall of Fame autograph signings which at the time were free, or at a card show, you were generous to a fault. I recall chatting with you at breakfast at a show; I did not ask you to sign anything, but you asked if I would like an autograph, and with that you pulled out a card and signed it. On numerous occasions I enjoyed your harmonica rendition of "Take me Out to the Ball Game." May the love of Christ be with you now and forevermore; and may His love comfort your loved ones through this time of sadness. God bless you, Stan the Man.
January 20, 2013
My Grandmother helped bring us up and she was into baseball, so I grew up hearing about "Stan the Man." What a loss. Stan sure will be another great in the annals of history. Our grandchildren, and great grandchildren will know why they are proud to be an American every time they read about the man and his accomplishments.
January 20, 2013
Stan was great gentleman. Very generous and deeply religous man.
January 20, 2013
My Dad and Stan learned to play together as boys in Donora PA. The stories I got were that Stan was the little kid that had to play harder to hang with the bigger boys. R.IP. my friend - you have touched so may lives in a positive way.
January 20, 2013
Truly THE MAN,both in sports and in life. If all sports members were like that. He never faltered in his path.
January 20, 2013
I SAW MY FIRST MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME IN APRIL 1951,AT WRIGLEY FIELD; WHILE AT BOOT CAMP AT GREAT LAKES NAVAL TRAINING STATION.

THE CARDINALS GOT FOUR HITS THAT DAY AND "THE MAN" WENT FOUR FOR FOUR. I HAVE NEVER HEARD A BASEBALL FAN, ANYWHEREM HAVE ANYTHING BUT PRISE FOR HIM.

I was born in Saint Louis in 1961. To young to see him play in person. If you loved Baseball you loved Stan Musial. May God be with you and family.

Sports stars of today pale in comparison to the qualities that Stan Musial brought to baseball and even more importantly those qualities he displayed off the field. Rest well 'Stan the Man.'

The Man was The Best player and human being in sports.
January 20, 2013
Stan Musial was a gentleman, great family man, a Navy Veteran, A baseball legend....the complete package. Stan, you will be so very missed. Opening game festitivies at Busch will never be the same again. Our city mourns. Condolences to the Musial Family.

Not only was he "the man" of baseball he was also the man of St. Louis and what it stands for his kindness for all mankind will truly be missed most of all. R.i.p baseballs perfect knight
January 19, 2013
One of the last of the "old school"- players who carved out a whole career with one club. Or should I say one bat, one mighty bat. As a Red Sox fan, I should have disliked him, but I couldn't. His actions on and off the field showed that Stan was not just "The Man" but "The Gentleman" as well.

Rest in Peace, Stan.

Dziekujemy!
January 19, 2013
A great and honorable man. One who would show the world what a real sports hero was not only during his professional career, but in his personal lifestyle. "Stan The Man" will always be remember and loved by all.
January 19, 2013
It won't be the same not seeing you ride around the stadium on Opening Day Stan. That's okay though, you'll be in the heart of every single member of Cardinal Nation and in the hearts of baseball's most dedicated fans. You've left an impeccable legacy on baseball and on the city of St. Louis! R.I.P Stan! Don't forget about us down here.
January 19, 2013
I had the pleasure of meeting Stan Musial a couple of times years ago. What a wonderful man he was! He will be truly missed.

I remember trick-or treating at the Musial home in the late
1950's, Stan and Lily would be at the front door to give out autographed balls and pictures. We will never see a more
genuinely great person in sport again.
January 19, 2013
GOD BLESS STAN WAS GOOD TO THE CARDINALS R.I.P
January 19, 2013

It was a great pleasure to meet "The Man" in spring training. He always had advise to those whom seeked him out. When you think of St. Louis baseball...Musial will be the first one mentioned. Sure Dizzy Dean and Branch Rickey were amoung the first to greet him at the Gates. Thanks for the memories and RIP.
January 19, 2013
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

In 1946 was my first year to watch baseball. I fast became a Stan Musial fan and followed his every at-bat for the rest of his years of life. In my opinion, Stan Musial was the greatest baseball player that ever lived.
January 19, 2013
I SAW HIM IN THE 50'S AT THE OLD STADIUM DOWNTOWN. HE HIT ONE OVER THE UPPER DECK.
January 19, 2013
You will be missed, but you left a legacy for many to follow. Thank you for the example that you set and the kindness and love you showed to many people. RIP Stan the Man!!!
January 19, 2013
I saw Stan play in the first major league game I ever attended as a small child in 1957. When baseball was played by real men. Later that year, I saw Hank Aaron play. How privileged I was back then.
January 19, 2013
One of the Best to ever play,Rest in Peace !!

January 19, 2013
You will be greatly missed. My prayers and thoughts are with the Musial family at this time.
January 19, 2013
I got to watch him in early 1960 at colt 45 stadium in Houston Texas. Tried to hit like him but never could very well. Good people.
January 19, 2013
It's a sad day for the Cardinal Nation, and the city of St. Louis, and baseball fans everywhere. One of the handful of greatest players to ever play this game, and a true gentleman and class act his whole life. The Cardinal family will never be quite the same.

My boyhood idol and the most humble and classiest human being in my lifetime. I will never forget sitting in the left field bleachers during Stan's last game wishing I could get his autograph on my scorecard. Twenty seven years later I was fortunate to get his autograph on that very scorecard. Heaven's baseball team just got one heckuva hitter.

The first baseball game I can remember was Stan's last game, and only because my Dad was so choked up over it. I think Stan came out after his last at bat. A double? Dad did not want us to see him get emotional. Years later, I would meet many more boys born in and around St. Louis in the 50's and early 60's, and it surprised me how many STAN's I met. Did not surprise me at all when Stan Javier broke into the big leaugues. Stan Musial was the kind of man you'd hope your son would grow up to be like -- all baseball aside. God bless all the Stans and Musiuals everywhere -- Paul Wiesler (born in St. Louis in 1958)

To Mr Musial's Family,

My condolences to all of you at this time of great loss. I had the great honor to meet Mr. Musial on a few occasions, each with Dr. Marty Schwarze. He is a delightful man, very pleasant and easy to converse and a great harmonica player!

I know a few family members and I want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Sincerely,
January 19, 2013
He was a gentle man! Thank you for being a great ambassador for the game of baseball. You will be missed. Rest in peace.

Stan met me 1960's in Los Angeles.

Yes a sad day for St.Louisans, but also a sad day for all Missourians and all Americans. He was an All-Star's All-Star and a Hall of Famer's Hall of Famer. A national treasure. I had the pleasure of watching Stan the Man and Teddy Ballgame play against each other for the last time at the 1960 All-Star Game at Kansas City's Municipal Stadium (along with Mantle, Mays, and Aaron). What a thrill.
