My wife and I want to extend our sincere condolences and deepest sympathy over the loss of Stan. We pray that God will wrap His loving arms around his family during this time of bereavement. I'm really going to miss talking to Stan, especially about our love for music and Toyotas. I used to listen to Stan for hours talk about the joys of being an avid motorcyclist and the places he'd traveled to on his bikes. I could look forward to seeing Stan every morning coming into work, and seeing him again in the canteen line at 9 o'clock sharp for breakfast. He's gonna be sorely missed at the VA. Rest In Peace, my brother!🙏🏾
