    Hello Gail –

    So sad to hear that Stan has passed away this past week – he was a lovely fellow. I can only imagine how much you must miss him already.

    I have very fond memories of the two of you at Christmas shows with mama Kathy and I. I so enjoyed seeing you and Stan work together on something that you both enjoyed so much. I also fondly remember listening and appreciating the story of how the two of you found each other later in life through a twist of fate and were so thankful to have found each other. The two of you were a great example of a loving couple for me to see as a young girl. Of course – it was also always a treat to see you and Stan work together to charm customers – so much fun 🙂

    My thoughts are with you through your loss Gail!
