Dear Marillyn and family,

Our deepest condolences for your loss of Stanley. We loved him dearly.
He was a wonderful person and we enjoyed his time as pastor at Letts UMC. We also enjoyed all the times we dined and played games at get togethers, whether they were at church or our house. We will always hold Stanley dear to our hearts. I know he is in the glorious presence of our Lord right now.
With love,
Wayne & Misti and family
