  1. Lisa,(Bill & Mark also), I am so truly sorry for the loss of your dad. Though I never got to meet your dad; I absolutely loved talking to him whenever he would call the store and would ask to speak to his “Girl”. Hang on to all of the good memories that you had with your dad Lisa because at the end of the day that is all that truly matters. You and your brothers are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Dear Layman Family,

    Our condolences to your family. We knew Stanley from the Elks club. We will always remember him as a kind gentleman. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

  3. My heart goes out to the entire Layman family, including his other children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who were oddly not mentioned in his obituary. I have many fond memories of spending time with Stan and his beloved daughter Lisa over the years. May God heal all of your hearts.

  4. Stan was a true soldier, with 2 tours of duty in Vietnam with the 5th group of the Green Berets. He went through many a harrowing experience over there. He knew how to be a soldier and survived all the odds, every veterans day I made it a point to wish him the same for the special day, I spent much time with Stan, and had many laughs, he was a good friend and will sincerely miss him, and will toast him the next time I’m at the Marl-Inn with his biddies of which I consider myself one.
