Members, our friend and award winning WHNPA member Stan Stearns is not doing well.
After a continuing battle with lung and now bone cancer, Stan is at the
Hospice of the Chesapeake, 3675 Solomons Island Road, Harwood, Maryland

to have cards from his friends.
One of Stan’s most well known photos - young JFK Jr saluting his father’s coffin.
