Eleven years gone and in our hearts every day. Stan, we miss you and treasure our years with you. Wherever you are, I hope you are smiling when you hear me say, "Here's to you, Woofie!"

We still miss you so much Stan and think of you every day. I've told so many people about you, and especially what an amazing musician you were, a side of you not everybody understood.

When the stars shine and the rain falls. Cloudy or clear. We'll think of you.

Let the rains
Wash you clean.
And the sun dry your tears.

Allow the comfort of angel wings
Gently wrapped around you
Rock you to sleep.

The night offers peace
And the morning promises joy.

Believe and there will be
A sweet spirit
Come to take you home again.

Now your soul is free.

In loving memory for Dr. Stan Silverstone 11/8/09

Today we buried Stan out in the sandy soil of eastern Long Island. Stan's friend's Si said the land it was on was reclaimed from the water using dikes decades ago. A most beautiful spot. We said a few prayers, sang a few songs, and lowered the coffin into the groud. Using a shovel borrowed from the local General Store, we showed our love and respect, and said farewell to Stan by shoveling dirt onto the coffin. By the way, the last opening of the coffin was just before he was lowered. Barbara had found a picture of herself holding Charlie as a baby that Stan had carried with him in his wallet. We stuck it in with the prayer shawls.

As we left the workers had finished filling in the grave and placed flowers on it. The site looked perfect.

We'll miss you so much Stan and look forward to coming to this spot to talk to you in the coming months and years.

Stan, We miss you so much today! The twinkle, the giggle-inducing roll of the eyes and most especially your kiss, even when you could move nothing below your face. At 10 I learned from you a truer slant to the universe, at 11, what inner courage and fun really mean. Your spirit and love for us all survived years of suffering, which in retrospect we only now can start to comprehend.
From playing the harmonica to me, a sick kid with the flu, to flirting with 1 yo Charlie with dueling chromatics, we miss you so very much, and take you with us every day in our souls, our minds, and mostly our hearts. Good night sweet woofie,
Karen Jean Palmore Silverstone Beckerman
