Our deepest thoughts and condolences go out to the Kudej family. I remember your father, myself (Mike M.), Bob R. and Stanley K. would go the lunch at the Duck Pin Lounge to discuss the love of sports and enjoy the good old times with friends. I all so remember the little league field in Shelton were Stanley worked hard for years on the field and taught all young boys and girls how to play the game of baseball. I am sadden by your passing my friend and you will always be in my thoughts. Michael Mockler , Maureen and Matthew.
