    Karen and family, I was sickened to hear about Stan’s passing. Stan was such a great guy and friend. He would call and we would get together for lunch when he was in central Nebraska on business. He helped me out so many times during his time in Kearney. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. It seems like the really good ones are taken way too early. Stan, you were a wonderful person and friend. Take care, Tim
