Jimmy I am so sorry for your loss. Mom and I were going to be at the viewing.. thinking it was to night. I cried when I saw we missed it yesterday. Please know how much we love you and Stan. You were such big parts of our lives and so many good memories back in the day. CB breaks, camping riding in the yellowish truck. Your dad and my mom tipping the dune buggy upside down in river. Oh and the dance lessons. Can't forget the dance lessons at north davis high school.. haha.. please call us. My cell 8016681220 and mom's is 8018148051. We love you and so sorry. Marilee and Marian Gilbert

Jim, I'm sorry about your father. You were there for both your Mom and your Dad and that says much about you--a good son. My prayers are with you and your family.

Dear James, Laurel and family- Our family is sorry that we won't be able to be there this week. Please know that we are thinking about you and praying for Uncle Stan. I know that our dad, Eddie, looked forward to hearing from your Dad, every week, at the same time, like clockwork! Mom and Dad loved their visits to Utah. And it was like a big reunion everytime they came here. And of course. He was so proud -we'd get to see stacks of pictures -to keep us up to date. It's gives us comfort to know their together again-probably playing cards... May Gods grace give your family peace knowing he is home again with The Lord. Keep in touch -Love Teresa, Michael and Justine Affronti

Dear family, I am your cousin (Lawrence) I have often thought of all my uncles over the years. My wish was always to see them again. I am so sorry for your loss. Parents are a hard loss no matter the age. I cannot say that I still don't miss mine to this day. I will pray for comfort for you. Aunt Fay has my contact information if you wish. Stay strong
