...like the old SaraLee slogan, "Nobody doesn't like Sara Lee, well.....Nobody doesn't like Stanley Greenfield, either!
My travels with Gail and Stanley made for some of my best memories.
Out of sight but not out of mind. Love, Brenda

May Stanley's memory be for a blessing. One of the nicest people I have ever known. Stanley negotiated my contracts with the Temple in Albany for which I was extremely grateful. I will always remember his charm and wit. His emails during his battle with his final illness are full of courage and humor. I will save them for the future. What a terrible loss.

Uncle Stanley was an amazing man. Although I haven't seen him since I was a child, I will always remember his kind heart and ability to make everyone laugh. Rest in peace my dear uncle. You are so very loved.

We met Stanley and Gail on a trip to Norway in 2017. What a wonderful couple! Stanley was full of warmth and life. His courageous battle was an inspiration- so optimistic and determined.
That is how we remember him.✡️😢

I remember Stanley as a hard working businessman always scurrying around the Gulf Life Tower. I got to know him a somewhat better in the last few years on social media. He had a subtle sense of humor. I’m certain that he spent his last few years happily touring the world with Gail. RIP Stanley.
