My husband Buzzy and I send to you and your family our deepest condolences. I’ve always treasured the memories of driving down to Florida with my parents, as a youngster, to visit Aunt Mary, Uncle Tadeusz and Stanley. And lo and behold, every time we visited, Stanley would challenge my sister Florence and I to a game of checkers. Well you know how that turned out? I know, I always lost! That memory puts a smile on my face as I can still picture him back then with a very serious look on his face. Peace be with you Cousin Stanley. And May your wife Nancy be given peace and strength at this very difficult time.
