In Memory of Stan...

Six years ago today my baby bro passed. I thought I'd share a pic and some of his words with you..

In Memory of Stan...-copy-2-scannedimage-4.jpg
Nov 4th 1968 to June 27th 2002

In Memory of Stan...-lance-018.jpg
Lances tribute to his uncle Stan. Stan's guitar with angle wings.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Can't hear the name without thinking of Ben Folds' song The Ascent of Stan. Sounds like he went far too young, but sounds like he kinda knew he would from those words. Hope you're remembering the good times.

Yea, Some of the words for the service were changes due to my grand mothers.

It's supposed to be:
Far away from streets that kill.

And that is where they will bury me.
My father asked me to change it as little as possible as to not get them any more upset. So that is all that was changed.
He was only 33 and had the biggest heart I've ever known.
I had dreams 2 nights in a row a week to the day saying my mom was dead which she had been gone 6 years at that point. But, I heard the phone ring that night and John say I have a brother in law Stan Lewis. I just knew. And the message he left on my recorder that day he said he didn't think he was going to make it. Just a sad thing to happen to a young man.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Sorry you are marking such a sad anniversary today-but do try to keep your thoughts and memories positive.
