    To Stanley’s lovely family,
    We were so sorry to hear of Stanley passing. Our family moved to the Cirque 10 years ago and Stanley was one of the first members of the community to greet us. We would walk with our daughter in a Baby Bjorn and Stanley was always happy to see us and catch us up on the goings on. We have missed Stanley and Glenda over these recent months.
    May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may Stanley and Glendas memory bring you joy.
    Ivette, Andrew and Jillian, 6B

    I met him only once, the week he arrived in Florida to try and start his new life , as a widower. We had a wonderful dinner at Ganzo, where he complained about everything but ate all of his food- that he wouldn’t order next time. He was a handsome man, well spoken , outspoken… I knew he was Val’s father as Noah’s Grandpa..Rachel you as the ever kind and hard working grand daughter who helped grandpa in and out of the car and restaurant. Glad I met you…. sorry you are gone too soon.. but are where you’ve wanted to be for 4 months.. rest well🙏🏼.

    We have many fond memories of Stan and Glenda. In the late 1980’s our children Adam and Valerie met. We, the four of us, celebrated our children’s’ wedding. In 1993 the four of us vacationed together on a two week bus tour of England, France and Italy. In 1995. We had the pleasure of welcoming Rachel into the world. When Rachel was 13 months old the Schreibman’s and Saunders vacationed together in Aruba. Each of the adults carried formula in their luggage for Rachel. In 1998 Noah was born. We celebrated the Brit Milah together.Through the years we were together for for our grandchildrens’ school graduations, birthday parties, bat and bar mitzvahs.

    Stan and Glenda will be missed. May their memories be as blessings✡️

    Offering condolences to the family of Stanley and Glenda Saunders. It seemed that Stanley so missed Glenda, the sweet lovely lady of his life, that he needed to join her in eternity.
    May memories of Stanley and Glenda sustain the family.

      Thank you Mrs. Citrin.

  6. Judy and Gary Schreibman

    We have had many fond memories of Stanley and Glenda:

    In the late 1980’s our son Adam and Valerie met at Deuce Coupe in Nanuet. Not long after that they decided to get married in 1990. It was a momentous celebration where Judy and Gary (a non-dancer) and Glenda and Stan , almost professional dancers partied through the afternoon and night. We always tried to celebrate our children’s birthdays together.

    In 1993 Glenda and Stan and Judy and Gary travelled, by bus, through England, France and Italy.

    It was in 1995 that we had the pleasure of welcoming Rachel Beth into the world. Of course, the four of us were there during Valerie’s long labor. We had a “Baby Naming” ceremony at the Monsey Jewish Center. Rachel’s first birthday party was spent with our families.

    When Rachel was thirteen months old the Schreibmans and Saunders vacationed in Aruba. In order to have sufficient baby formula each of us carried formula in our luggage.

    In 1998 Noah Michael was born. We were together for his Brit Milah.

    Through the years we had been together for our children’s and grandchildren’s birthdays, nursery school graduation, dance recitals and Bat and Bar Mitzvahs. We were proud grandparents attending public school, middle school and high school graduations.

    We attended Rachel’s college graduation from FAU. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, none of us were able to attend Noah’s graduation from FSU.

    In summation, our memories of Glenda and Stan were numerous. We had great times together.

    May their memories be as a blessing.

    Judy and Gary Schreibman
