Meredith & Girls, We are heartbroken for your loss. Stanley was a one of a kind gem...such a gentle, kind-hearted man. We have many fond memories of him while living next door to him. I know he will be missed by so many friends, family, church family, and community. This was not goodbye, just until we meet again and in that alone, I pray you all have the peace that passes all understanding. May God bless each one of you, comfort your grieving hearts, and give you strength in the days and months ahead.
