Stanley, what an amazing man. You have been part of my life and my families life for the past 15 years . I will miss your face lighting up every time you went to see your favorite baseball team, the DODGERS and all most every day telling me ‘Mandy look, Dodger Blue!’ Pointing to the blue top you were wearing. As that was the colour your Dodger boys wear. I will miss seeing you almost every day, having our chats and talking about all your favorite TV shows and you showing everyone all your favorite TV show pictures on the iPad, your favorite being Lost in Space (Coming in close second were Dukes of Hazzard, six million Dollar Man, bonanza, and lots more) Your were loved by so many and will be missed by all.

Stanley, never a day goes by when I hear Zac Brown Band sing Home Grown I don't think of you. The hours on end that song played in the car on repeat and you singing along to every word. Amber and I are so grateful that you have and will always be a part of our lives. Much love. Rest in peace my friend.

Stanley, you will be sadly missed. Thanks for the time we had together, I was lucky to be one of your carers, that help you in everyday life, I got to learn all your quirks and have some laughs, like when you blow raspberries when no one's looking, it seemed in many ways it was your way or the highway in the way we went about assisting you, we will miss, hearing about lost in space, six million dollar man, jukes of hazards, I dream of Jeannie and bonanza. Stanley I know you looking down on us with your mum and dad, eating KFC and having beer.
