I know we have lost touch in the last few years, but I think of you often when I pass your home. I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Stan with a smile on his face. I know it will not be easy to overcome Stan's loss, but my thoughts are with all of you at this time.

Alice and Harold Miller

We were so sorry to hear about Stan's passing. We remember meeting both of you at the pool in PCL several years ago and discovering that we had been on the same trip to China. It has been a pleasure seeing both of you in Boynton Beach over the past several years and Stan will sorely be missed.

Dearest Leah,
The passing of such a dear and valued friend as Stan is one of the toughest
losses I have to endure since I was there, right from the beginning of your
relationship--the very night you met your young, handsome doctor at the
Forum meeting in Oct., 1960, which coincidentally, was the same night I met
my future husband, Harold.
I will cherish the memories of all the wonderful years of our couples' relation-
ship --your kindness, generosity, and friendship to us both --and to me personally after Harold's passing.
You and the family can be so very proud of the fine, well-respected husband,
father, and professional he was; a man of scholarship and life-long learning,
a true gentleman, and a real "mensch" --a loss that will leave my heart heavy,

Sandra and Hans Froehlich

I met Stan at shul in Florida 2 years ago. He sat in front of me.
It was obvious he was a thoughtful and likeable person whenever we had discussions. Will miss him.

Dear Polin Family,
While we didn't know Dr. Polin very well or very long we found him to be an exceptional man. Whenever we saw him in Shul here in Boynton, he always had a smile on his face and a friendly greeting. We as well as everyone else at Anshei Chesed will miss him. Hamokom Yenachem Eschem Besoch Sharai Availim Tzion V'Yerushalem. Your family should only have Simchos.
