My deepest sympathy goes out to Stan's family. He was such a great person. I will forever remember my talks with him and the many ice cold cokes he would give me on hot summer days. Rest in peace Stanley you were truly one of a kind . Heaven is always and forever around us and no soul remembered is ever really gone.

Our prayers to Stanley's Family. We from St. Joan of Arc have visited with prayers and Holy communion for Stanley for some time at Elizabeth Scott. Also at our Monthly Mass, Father Dan Zak has celebrated the Anointing of the sick with Stanley, and given him Holy Communion.
Stanley was always spiritually taken care of.
