Offering my condolence to the family & all who knew Stanley Ginda. As you cherish the many fond memories of Mr. Ginda, reflect on the time when sickness..., death... & sorrow... will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection! (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19)
May God’s word bring you comfort during this difficult time and in the days ahead, as we await the fulfillment of his promises!

Stan, you touched some many lives in some many wonderful ways. The Lord greeted you with open arms as you entered into heaven and your mother was there with her warm and beautiful hug! You will be missed but I know heaven will be a more special place with your caring and giving heart and soul!

My condolences to the Ginda family, Paul, John, Ann and Stan’s family for this disturbing news. I remember Stan as a younger teenager sometimes very quiet, sometimes very energetic with laughter and once dressing up in full hockey gear to play street hockey. I hope you can find comfort in God’s love.
