My cousin Stanley was one of the best persons you could know. He never talked bad about anyone and was always there to give you a ride or make you laugh. His uniqueness was what set him apart from everyone else, and was one of the reasons I loved him. Growing up as kids, he was the best snowball maker and snow fort builder. One of the things he loved to do as a kid was build fires in the yard behind his house and put them out, but one day he built a fire and couldn't put it out so the fire department had to come and put it out. I don't think I had ever seen him so scared. He also helped get me a job working with the State of Connecticut, of which I will always be grateful for. I will miss Stanley.
love, Debbie
