Uncle Stan

I did not know Stan as an actor or singer tho I was aware that that was what he did . To me he was crazy ( in a very good way uncle Stan

His visits to the Auld country wher never less than events , He was very very close to My father his older brother Archie

who had looked after him as a boy and teenager and he did the same for me  In his last years Archie did not enjoy good health and died too young , Stans kindness to Anna my mother and myself knew no bounds , he did the repairs around the property that Dad could no longer do, he gave me my first Kilt and all the bits , taught me to fish and lots else! Stan treated me as a friend not some daft kid. He was perplexed when I joined the army as a profesional , and though proud unsure when I went into the church but always supported me .

On my last visit he tho strugling with his illness was in every sence still Stan . We talked of folk and places back in scotland laughed fit to burst and he said an one point "My God Rabbie" (as my Dad called me) "that was just Archie" and I loved him all the more for that

The family back in Scotland and the rest of the UK will miss him and his force of life the last of the Kane bros  Jonny Charlie Archie and Stan. As I have said at more funerals than I care to recall  You gave us your life and your love go gently to youe hevenly Father kind soul
