    I extend my sympathies to the Pannier family in your loss. I worked for Stanley as a young person in 1964 to 1966. Stanley was a patient and decent man, who was easy to work for. He and Gloria always treated me and other teens helping with summer hay baling with respect, and I personally always valued that. Working for Stan helped me to form a work ethic that was central to the success I had in my career. Please know my prayers are with you all in this difficult time.
