  • Only had a chance to visit with him sporadically over the years and every time felt like so good with big bear hugs and catching up. My last visit was 3 years ago when he was a gracious tour guide taking me and Aunt Roseanne around New Castle. He was so patient with both of us and full of family history. It was a great outing and one I will always remember. Love you Uncle Stanley💞
