Thread Name: Obit: Stan James of Washington (Nov 2008)
Subject: RE: Obit: Stan James of Washington has died
I'm Jerry, Stan's sister, Margie's, son.

I loved Uncle Stan and remember what an impact it had on me to see him building the replica ship at Expo '74 in Spokane. Does anyone have info or recollection, or maybe even photos, of the ship and the building process? I believe the ship was a replica of the Nina: of "the Pinta, the Nina and the Santa Maria".

I think that my brother Ed will agree that Uncle Stan was an immense inspiration to anyone who knew him and sought to develop their creative gifts.

It's been a comfort to read these posts and to hear and feel the love that family and friends express.

Best wishes to all,
Jerry Naillon
