My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. One doesn’t usually think that a chemo appointment is the best way to reconnect, but it was good to see you and Stan at that time. I can think of many great memories that we had during our hockey and bingo days. He will be missed. My deepest sympathies.
Sincerely, Doreen Helps
So sorry for your loss, he sure was one of kind. I will always remember him as a kind and gentle man. He will definatetly be missed.
To Sandi, Kathie, Scott and Cindy and your families.
I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Stan’s passing. I will always remember and cherish the memories of my childhood in Corunna and the many days as a teenager spent at the Stewart household. I can still hear Stan saying “How are ya young fella?” as soon as I walked through the door. He was such a likeable character and a wonderful father figure to everyone. The seat he’s left empty at the rink will be filled with the fond memories he has left behind.
Thoughts and prayers to all the Stewart family.
Sandi, Kathie, Scott & Cindy
My condolences to you and your entire family on the the loss of Stan. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.
