  1. family of stanley, I have known stanley from high school and jaycees and he was an awesome teacher and great friend. i will miss him . my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. sincerely, jerry hamill

  2. My deepest sympathy and condolences go to the family of Mr. Kamarados. It is a very sad time when we lose someone we love. We remember the good times we had with them and how much we love them. When we loose someone we love the Bible gives us a comforting message to help us cope with their death. This message is found at Revelation 21:3, 4 and Isaiah 33:24. May these words bring you comfort as they did me when my mother died. Deepest Sympathy, Ms. Floyd

  3. Mr K. was my favorite substitute teacher. He was so nice, and I really liked him. I will miss seeing him around Weir High. Sincerely, Shelly Bryant

  4. Our deepest sympathy and condolences go to the Kamarados family. This kind, compassionate and gentle man was a true friend to our family. Mr. K was a wonderful teacher who became a role model to all no matter the color. We will never forget the stand he took when we were fighting for custody and volunteering to be a witness, this meant so much to us. Mr. K will always be in our hearts, memories and prayers. As Helen Steiner Rice wrote “Let not your heart be trouble”. Let God be your pillow of comfort. . Our prayers are with you. Glenna, Lacey, Demarius and Devin Dokes
