Jimmy Please let Carolyn know that is was not his passing that has brought all of us together but his life that did. The way he lived and was as a person is what has everyone remembering him in such a wonderful light.

I could give her tons of stories and the funny thing was we never spent a bunch of time with him other than the 2 flag families we did. We just chatted in passing with him or on his tours.
Yes he made that big of an effect on us.

Oh no.........

We have been gone from the thread since March, and to come back to this news is devastating. Two flag families, chats with him in the lobby, and being there with him the day he retired...God speed Stan. We are so happy and grateful that we got to spend some time with you in December. Thank you for the memories



Sorry the pics are so big - I still stink at posting these!

I have that WL pin, the one on Stan's hat. Love those pins.

I'm looking forward to our next visit. I could use a vacation now. I'm terrible, aren't I? I just took a 2.5 week vacation in May.
