Over the years we have all enjoyed the events and stories of Stanley Sobieski. What a wonderful man. His strength and independence were an inspiration to all of us. Bob always shared the life events. Your devotion to your Dad was a beautiful thing to witness. We all knew your Saturdays were sacred and your "Dad " always came first. You and all your family filled his life with love, laughter and care. We are so happy he was blessed with a long and wonderful life and that his grandchildren and great grandchildren have his wisdom and love in their hearts forever.
