Stan was indeed a wonderful person who grabbed the bull by the horns and experienced life to the fullest when he could. He had the gift of the gab, a wonderful presence and a kind heart.

I will always remember his smile.

My sincerest sympathy to his family.

Theodore your father will always be with you watching you from heaven with every successful move you make. I'm sure you will make both your parents proud.

Hello to all

On behalf of my son and I, we would like to thank you all for your beautiful messages of love and support.

Stan was a wonderful husband, father, friend and more. He battled for many years with his Thalassaemia and various other health issues. However over the past almost 1.5 yrs he battled with his biggest enemy cancer.

Stan was a man of intelligence, pride and perfection.  He had a great life, achieved many goals and defied the odds. He truly was a remarkable person. Even in his last days he had many come to see him and he thanked them for being such great friends and it was an honor to have known them. Personally it was an honor to have known him.

I was blessed to have him as my soul mate. He has left me many memories too many to mention in fact, but the greatest gift he has left me was our beautiful son and the love we shared for each other. I don’t think anything can ever take that away from me, no matter how much time may pass.

Stan requested a song to be played at his funeral that he felt summed his journey of life to a tee. I share this with you.
I think for somebody to plan their own funeral ittakes alot of strenght and that Stan definately had.

My way by Frank Sinatra

And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain.

I've lived a life that's full.
I've traveled each and every  highway;
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spat it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

I've loved, I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
"No, oh no not me,
I did it my way".

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!

Rest in peace sweetheart,
Wherever a beautiful soul has been there is a trail of beautiful memories
Eternally yours , Maria (Miaki)

Dear Miaki,
I'm so sorry, for you lost I really don't know what to say to you at this time.It must be very hard ,but I do wish you courage ,strength and most of all I do wish you remember the goodtimes and memories you shared with your husband in the hope it will see you through your grief.
we don't know why but we have to belief that god has a plan and your lost was part of his planned.
All this time I thought Stan got better after his surgery.
I must have missed the posting about his death, sorry,   I am so sorry.
All my love to you and your son I can't comprehand your pain but I will pray that you hurt less everyday. :hugfriend

This poem reflects truly what a brave soldier Stan was.

May he rest in peace  :sorrow

Miaki, you will always have Stan with you spiritually and physically in form of Theodore. He will grow up to be as brave as Stan if you stay brave with him.

Take care of your self and your little soldier.

Hugs to Theodore (Stan Junior) :hugfriend

Peace!

Four months dearly missed but never forgotten

STAN, my darling, I loved you with a full heart,
the day you quietly slipped away you tore my soul apart,
but it was not your fault, it was your time to go.
All the tears I shed for you now would never fill the sea,
But an ocean is not as deep as the love I shall always carry for you,
I remember the precious times we had so very many together,
Our hearts and love are forever,
 
But I knew from the land of living sweet heart, I knew you had to go
You deserved your dignity in your goodbye,
I saw the love in your eyes before your spirit set free,

We shall meet again,
But never the less I have to endure the pain....
of knowing that you are free
I know that you are waiting for me
Where once again for all eternity be free forever.

Miss you , Love you for all eternity your family.  xoxoxoxo
