Our lives have been more enriched and blessed by the honor we have had of knowing and loving Mr. Stanley Fiveash. This blessing began in 2007 when we moved in his neighborhood. We became close in the past six years and considered him neighbor, friend, and family. Our hearts are both sadden by this temporary separation and also grateful to have known and loved Mr. Stanley. Our hearts and prayers are always with his family and his dear wife, Mrs. Edna Fiveash. We love you dearly.
