I will miss Stanley’s posts on Facebook since I didn’t have a face to face very often. I especially liked the ones with the picture of the meal and description of what “lil darling” cooked for him. I always thought his name for Charlotte was sweet and special.

Carol and I don’t know what to say. We are heart broken over your passing. We know you are walking on those streets of gold. I remember you and Brian coming in to Lorene’s radio show on Saturday mornings and then going to the Mecca Cafe for breakfast. Good times. On the Alaska cruise when Carol’s mother had her stroke, you let us us your cell phone when ours didn’t work. Thank you my friend. We will miss you.

I had the honor of mixing sound for the Shiloh Quartet several times through the years. I also got to work along side of Stan during special projects at Pleasantview Baptist. He had such a servants heart. He always would say how much he appreciated my time helping on the Shiloh Reunion Concerts, Christmas Programs, Remodel projects and just the daily operation of keeping the church building up to par. He was such a big kid at heart, a gentle giant, a prankster, and such a Godly man. I will miss you my friend, your big heart, your laugh and your smile.

This man was the kindest, sweetest most loving and romantic man. Never missed a day telling me how much he loved me! He made me laugh . He was the light of my life. He was a Godly man and a positive influence on our children and our grandchildren . We had 39 years of an extremely happy marriage. We traveled to places I never thought I would see in my life. The places were all the better seeing them with him. Loving you always Honey

There are so many memories over the course of my life that have Stanley in them. I remember all the Sunday afternoons playing flag football. My dad always let me play and Stanley never minded even when I would rush him at quarterback and chase him around until he would have to throw the ball. He would always say to me," you are such a pest", then he would say "Kenneth, your daughter is just like you"! He had such a wonderful smile. What a great thing it was to grow up having always known Stanley!! Thank you Stanley for always being such a good lifelong friend to my dad!! We LOVE you!!
