Heaven gained another angel. My heart is deeply sadden by the loss of Stan. He was one of the nicest men I have ever met. He was such a great boss/supervisor/coworker but he was more than that he was my friend, like a dad to me. He taught me everything I know about my job, he was by far the best mentor. He was truly a blessing to me, he will always hold a very special place in my heart and he was loved more than words and he will truly be missed by me. Until we meet again Stan...I love you and will forever be grateful for all you did for me. The last time I saw him I got the biggest hug and right there I knew he loved me too.
