  • God Bless a good friend

    Stanley S. Schwartz is a name you should all know - He was the one attorney in the USA who had the courage to question those responsible for my sisters death. He was the ONE person who said - we must take action. Because of him thousands of people with HCM will have better care and honest data to detirmine our treatments on.
    This morning Stanley passed away while on his treadmill at home in Michigan.

    Stanley has helped us change the world and we honor his memory today.

    He has done many good deeds on earth - many mitzvahs - I hope his famlily may take comfort in the knowledge that he helped so many. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, colleagues and many friends.

    God bless Stanley!

    Sincerely,
    Lisa

      It sounds like Stanley lived a very full life and was able to accomplish many great things in his time here on earth. May his family feel comforted in all the good Stanley did. May their grief turn to a celebration of his life.

              WOW

              I live in Michigan & I was not familiar with the story of Mr. Schwartz. I will be sure to read his Obit & make a Donation to the Charity of his choice. Lisa, if you would like I can send you a copy of the Obit from the Jewish News. Let me know

                    A lawyer of great worth, and I don’t hear about him until he’s gone.

                    It is said there are worthy people in this world on whom the fate of the world rests. They may not even know themselves who they are, but their living example keeps the world in its proper orbit.

                    To the family and friends who knew Stanley I acknowledge your pain, but you will have the memory of this man forever. His work here is now done. May you find peace in the memory of his good works and shining examples.

                      We need more people like Stanley Schwartz in this world. Although I did not know him, I wish I had. People of conviction and courage, such as him, come around far too seldom. A great person to model.

                      He left a mark on the world that can perhaps be a comfort to his family.
