So sorry to hear of the loss of Stan. We were 2nd cousins and we were close growing up as we spend part of our summer vacations at his dad, Freddie's farm. We lived in El Paso, Texas and make the trip to Indiana every summer. The last time I saw him was at the Torwelle reunions.
May your memories help in your sorrow.
