R.I.P, Stanley…

by grace on June 1, 2022

As I’ve mentioned, Mom and I went to Seattle in April to visit her Mom’s high school sweetheart, Stan Orr. Stan was from Springfield and they’d gone to Springfield High together. He’d been in very bad shape for quite some time and had almost died a few times before we went to visit him.

I’m so glad we got to spend quality time with him because he just passed away two days ago, on Monday, May 30th. Although I had only met him once before our visit, it was a joy to be with him. He had such a great sense of humor and was so cheerful and full of fun, despite the fact that his days were numbered. He had a dry sense of humor, he enjoyed playing different funny clips from youtube on his TV for us, and he frequently burst into song! He was just so full of life…

Here’s Mom and Stan on Easter Sunday, April 17th.

Monday April 18th, our last visit to Stan before we headed back home.

The problem with living for eighty six years is that many people you know don’t make it that long. That’s why it’s so important that we try to love as much as possible before it’s all over.

Stan was a darling fellow with a twinkle in his eye.

Ok then,
