Her patience, compassion, and dedication these past ten years has earned our everlasting gratitude.

Stanley loved working in his yard and his lawn was always the envy of the neighborhood. He was part of a State Championship Bowling Team, an avid stock market trader, and a lifelong Detroit Tiger Fan. A memorial service will be held in Bowling Green, KY at a future date.
