  2. Phyllis, Cindy, Kandi & Todd, Pam & Armand and the Family & Friends of Stan Shatos jr,

    Sincerely wish to express our Deepest Sympathy on the passing of Cousin Stan. Never will forget his smile, sense of humor and kind heart. As a youngster, he treated me like a kid brother and kidding around with me, calling me “Richie” in his own certain way. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time…and always.

    “May the sound of angels wings take thee to heaven’s rest my friend….we will meet again at that heavenly shore.”

    God Bless with Love,
