Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there... I do not sleep. I am the thousand winds that blow... I am the diamond glints on snow... I am the sunlight on ripened grain... I am the gentle autumn rain. When you waken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of gentle birds in circling flight... I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry- I am not there... I did not die... Stan with always be with you and us. Our hearts are with you today in your sorrow, Mel and Elaine Rota

He was such a lovely man in so many ways always a gentle, funny, and supportive/encouraging. He was filled with such interesting stories about a life well lived as a soldier, reporter, and father. He knew and was admired by all who knew him... he will be missed.

Sorry to hear this, MaryJane, Pat, and Sam. He will be very much missed. Such a cheery guy. I enjoyed his many stories, of newspaper work and other experiences – a real citizen of his community. Glad I got to meet and get to know him a little bit. Sad loss for his soulmate Eleanor and of course Mary Jane, Cindy, and Laurie. Will see you on Thursday and Friday. Love -- Abby Peck
