“Our family would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Stanley H. Tripp Sr. Words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, and death is truly a painful enemy to the human family. Please take comfort in 2 scriptures found in God’s Word the Bible. John 5:28,29 speaks of the resurrection, and Revelation 21:3,4 promises the time in the future when death and mourning will be no more. Our prayers are with you.”

“I was deeply saddened as I heard of Stan's passing. Stan was a wonderful loving husband to my mother-in-law, Bernice. The years they spent together were filled with joy. Stan was an amazingly caring loving stepfather to Tim and myself. He loved and enjoyed his grandsons, Aaron and Adam. He adored and so loved his great-grand children, Leah, Jacob, and Stella. I will miss Stan very much. I find comfort and happiness with my many wonderful memories of the times we shared at family dinners, holidays, birthdays, and events. I will cherish these memories and they will be with me forever. Rest in peace Stan. All my love, Pat”

“I have good memories of hanging out at the car lot in Spencer in the clouds of cigarette smoke and listening the everyone shoot the breeze. It seemed there were always guy there just talking to your Dad. I know that when I went to town with my Dad it was an obligatory stop just to say, “Hi.” Stan was a friendly, welcoming man and I always felt that in his presence. Certainly in that our fathers were very similar. My heart goes out to you now in your loss. May the angels lead him into Paradise and be welcomed as he always welcomed others. Love and a big hug, Thom”

If this can be comforting to you, just know that he is no longer suffering (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and now he, as well as others who have died, awaits the wonderful resurrection that Jehovah God has promised (Acts 24:15). I hope this message brings you comfort.”
