Deepest sympathy to Stan's family, may you find peace in Gods hands
God bless. The family. I had the pleasure of meeting Stan in Winona a few times Renae Potter
Alas My Brother. From the members of Evergreen Lodge #46.
I only had to meet Stan once to realize how special he was for Marilyn. It's sad that they didn't get to live out their love story to it's fullest yet filled the little time they had with precious moments. So glad I got to watch their relationship evolve. So sorry that I can't be there to celebrate his memory as you mourn his loss. Take care, he will be missed. Dacia Bestor (Marilyn's stylist and friend)
Stan left his mark on many more than he knew. He is missed.
Stan and Bonnie were great neighbors on Birch Echo Road. Whenever Stan stopped the car to talk we always came away with a smile as he was very good with a quick jest. We are sorry for your loss. Jon and Ruthanne Weispfenning
