Stanley was our next door neighbor for the past two years, when we moved next to him. Although we did not get to have as many conversations as we would have wished, for the times we did speak with him, we found him to be a very kind and decent person. Stanley would start off his morning by playing the music he must have loved in his younger days, standards from the 1930's through the 1960's. This was just one instance of his unique charm and I must say, we became quite accustomed to it. He had many visitors that tended to his daily needs and we could tell that they enjoyed talking with him too. Since the sad day that he was brought away from his home, it has not been the same, as his warm presence has been missed. May his soul rest in peace and may his family be comforted that he touched many lives.

Even though Stanley was with us only a short period of time, his kind heart will be missed. He was such a pleasure to talk to and even get to sing once in a while (with a little begging on my part!). My thoughts and prayers are with Stanley and the rest of you, his family, at this difficult time. I am honored to have met him. Karen
