This story has a sad ending.

Hello, this is Anne, Stan’s wife writing.  I guess I should say widow.  Yes.  I wrote it.  I am a widow. I know that he followed many of his followers and often shared your posts with me.  You were a part of his support family thus I share this sad news with you.

Stan had surgery to basically replace most of his aorta on October 24.  It did not go perfectly.  He never woke and and died on November 8.

He leaves behind me, 4 children and their spouses, siblings, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and many many saddened hearts. And a garden.
