I am saddened and shocked to hear the news about Stan. He was a fellow classmate and great guy. I enjoyed conversations with him at fantasy football meetings about high school days and our mutual love for the Pittsburgh Steelers. A real good man was lost way too soon. My heart goes out to his family.
