Stan and Sandy are our neighbor, I felt so sad to lost Stan. Usually I was seeing him every day in his backyard, when he was taking care his chickens. He was nice and generous. When he was around, I was feeling that I can see my dad in him, because my dad was so nice too. He was hurrying to help if we needed anything. He was a good man, and we missed him so much.

Stan was a great man and a great friend. We met 2 years ago this past January while bow hunting in Shiloh Woods Metro Park. We quickly became friends and shared many memories enjoying the outdoors and nature. I feel blessed to have known Stan and saddened that it was only for two years, but I do know we will meet again.
