    Collection for Stan's Family

    The flowers are lovely. Thank you for sharing the picture of them and of his family, I definitely see family resemblance.

    I don't mean to keep interjecting but Z, you said you wish you didn't share as many details about yourself as you did & didn't say much about all the other things about Stan. I have to disagree with you though, respectfully of course. In sharing your story about that horrific time in your life you showed exactly who Stan was. He was there for you, no words, no judgement, but you knew for a fact that he was there and all in for you and was there to support you in ways you probably didn't know at the time that you needed. That's what a friend does, what a brother does, no questions asked no pressure, just be. That speaks volumes and embodies everything he was, kind, funny, a smartass and a naturally good human being in a world full of selfish, cruel sometimes crazy people and always just plain there for you to let you know that you have a back up if you need it. I remember you going through a lot at that time and it wasn't my business and I had no idea it rose to that insane level. You said you don't think you ever thanked him for helping you when you came up here, from my heart, I think he knew how much it meant to you and 2 words thank you were conveyed to him just the same even though it was just an ordinary act for him. You're right, grief is strange. When something like this happens, like lightening out of a clear blue sky, you are in such shock that given any idle time at all brings the memories of all the past both good and bad and what will never be and it hurts. Even the good parts hurt right now because damnit, it's not fair. He's not here, it wasn't supposed to happen, he was a great guy, we need people like him to balance out the effects of the (sorry 'bout this but) assholes in this world. Emotions come when it's quiet as it's good to share and open and let everyone know what kind of man he was and what he means to you. He was a part of your life and nothing will fill that hole in the defensive line of your life quite like that because souls like his are a rarity and should be cherished. I for one am glad you said what you did, it spoke volumes of who Stan is and says tons about his character. So, thank you for sharing. It's good for the mind and soul. So please don't think you over shared, it was unreal what you went through. A lot of people would have crumbled but you rose from the ashes. We all keep things private but the burdens we share mean we don't need to carry the heavy load alone. With everyone sharing, I don't know what made me look in my messages and there was one from Stan from 2009. Why it's still there I have no idea but it was classic. I was apologizing for saying something to someone, I'll never remember who but they said something about Stand and I went off on them then felt bad thinking I was out of line and I never try to offend anyone or argue but I don't like jerks so my mouth got away from me. He said he was glad I did, proceeded to complain about some of the members and their fighting and what I interpreted as general frustration at all the work he did and they made it harder (I'm paraphrasing). It was true Stan, he loved the Browns, he worked hard for this board for all fans to share their Browns love/hate but it was still a huge undertaking. He thanked me and said he wished I posted more and not to beat him at Fantasy Basketball lol and I am now glad that somehow that was the only one of his messages still in my inbox. Still trying to figure out what I said on the board to the other member but for a reason that will remain unknown sleestacks were mentioned and I told Stan I still want one LOL.

    Wow. This was both heartbreaking and heartwarming with laughter in there all at the same time. Beautifully written Zombo. Going girly for a second to send you a hug (sorry). Stan may not have been a big emotions guy but I think he would be touched by your words that reverberate with love. I am very sorry for the loss of your friend. And when you step up to that bar when you see him again, you're probably going to have to have 2 at a time to catch up.

    Done. I really, really wish I could have chipped in more than I did but it's my small thank you.

    RIP Stan "Atenears" Aten

    Remembered Joy Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free! I followed the plan God laid for me. I saw His face, I heard His call, I took His hand and left it all... I could not stay another day, To love, to laugh, to work or play; Tasks left undone must stay that way. And if my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss... Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss. My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much: Good times, good friends, a loved-one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief— Don’t shorten yours with undue grief. Be not burdened with tears of sorrow, Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow. A toast to Stan: Stan, May you get to Heaven a half hour before the Devil knows you're dead.

    Omg, this is quite a shock. My thoughts, sympathy and prayers are with Stan's wife, family and friends. He kept this place going not only for Browns fans everywhere but through his complaints, I think he did it for himself as well. Godspeed Stan. 😪

    No problem Z. Thanks for making the font on the subject like bolder, I can never do that so it's easier to see. I remember back a few years ago when we put actual reports out weekly and I enjoyed making up holiday themed reports. Not sure if anyone read those or enjoyed them or even remembers but it was fun.

    That's not a very nice name to call Rich.... Bozo lol (kidding Rich). I don't know about Mitch's managing choices but at least he's active while The Alfred Morisses (Brandon) has not been active in the league since Sept. and somehow not in last place in the league. P.S. REMINDER: The deadline to complete trades for (at least) League 3 is Saturday Nov. 10th.
