A memorial service in celebration of Stan's life was held at the First Presbyterian Church of Milpitas, CA, Sat., June 30, 2001.

We love you, Stan, and you'll always live in our hearts.

God saw the he was tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around him and whispered, "Come with Me."

With tearful eyes we watched him suffer and saw him fade away. Although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands put to rest, God broke our hearts to prove He only takes the best.
