Stan Kastoras A Warrior
« on: March 14, 2007, 02:14:02 AM »
With a very heavy heart I must inform this group of the passing of Stan Kastoras, husband of Miaki, and father to their son, on March 13, 2007 after a long battle with congestive heart failure.

Stan was a warrior in every sense of the word, battling thal as a champion. His iron will kept him going much longer than any doctors believed possible.

He will be sorely missed. Our hearts go out to his wife and son, and all his family and friends.

Miaki, we are here for you.
Andy

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Oh dear....

I can't believe I am reading this. :quiver

Stan was a true warrior. He is an example for all of us to fight disease beyond our natural limits without giving up hope. He was a true soldier and his name will live on among us forever.

My heart goes out to his entire family and friends. :sorrow

Miaki, I know it is a very hard time upon you now, but you have to be strong and take extra care of yourself and your son.

May his soul have peace. :pray

Stan was one of the first patients I meet at my very first TIF conference in NYC.  I remember he and his friend Bill were wearing cowboy hats!

I had the pleasure of meeting Maria when she and Stan came to the States for their honeymoon.  Through the years I have seen Maria, or Maria & Stan at the TIF conferences.  I am happy and proud to call them friends. 

Stan was a pioneer for all thal patients.  I will miss you Stan the Man!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with Maria & Theodore.

Dearest Miaki, I am overwhelmed with sadness from hearing about dear Stan's passing. I was on my way to visit you both in the ward on Tuesday the 13th after my transfusion but the phenergan I was given had totally taken over my senses and so I decided to turn around and head home. Today I found out that Stan had passed on that very day. I cannot believe it.....so very hard to comprehend. I am praying for you and Theodore. Stan was indeed a gentleman with a wicked sense of humour and will be SO missed by SO many.  He was courageous and an absolute inspiration to me. He will always be in my memory. Darling Maria, you are in my thoughts and in my prayers.....I wish I could say something to ease your pain

I am reallly shocked , no words can describe how sad i am. I thought he will make it, but.....

Miaki, i know how you feel and i know that no words can ease your pains but be sure that this is much better for him. God always choose the best for us, it could have een worest.

I am thinking of you all the time, i am so sorry
