    Dear Clarese and family,
    Giles and Dorothy, and Judy and Gayle and Jim had such a wonderful experience of having the Sailors in our lives as young folks and later. We were so honoured to have that positive, cheerful, supportive Stan who loved to laugh. And oh how he knew how to have a great time while doing good. He will be so missed.

  6. Dear Clarese
    I have such fond memories of my time visiting your house when I was little. I was so sad to hear of Stan’s passing. You both meant a lot to our family especially as I was growing up. Mom and I were reminiscing and have many stories about hair dressing and visits. We send our thoughts and hugs. Stan was an exceptional person in every way. Love Fay Kuzmar and Joy de Nance (aka Peewee or Creeper – depending on the day).

    Dear Clarese,
    Stan was one of our favourite cousins – always with a sparkle in his eye and that very clever wit. We were so happy to bump into you two at the Palm Springs airport a few years ago. What a fun little visit before we all boarded our planes. As always, Stan kept us entertained. He was very special! Our sincere condolences.
    Love, Dan and Sandra Murray
