James Alexander Stanley, son of James Stanley and Sandra Farmer, brother of Andrea, Jessie, Joseph and Brittany. He liked to be called Stan, Stanley, Alex, Sokie and Raven Star. Loved by his friends and family as a gentle loving soul. He was a brilliant mind that could talk to anyone about anything. He was kind and compassionate to anyone he met. He understood what struggling meant to people and wanted to help anyone feeling lost or without love. His love knew no bounds and those who knew him know the strength of his love. He loved to write his thoughts and feelings. His family will cherish those thoughts and ideals. We hope to share them with the world as that is what he always wanted. Fly high with your mother and other family angels. Watch over us and protect us like you did in the past. We will continue to look to the stars and cherish you.

"A crystallized bit of infinity for you, I am here, I am welcome, I am the fire.

Every tear is a war call, and when the call goes unheard, the angels weep, and gather arms."

~The Legendary King, Nex Deora Tempus Rex

It's been a long time in which I've been in contact with Stanley but in our younger years we had a blast. I remember spending hours upon hours of playing Vigilante 8 and Halo at his house. Stanley was such a kind and welcoming soul and I'll never forgot the fun times we had as kids. My thoughts go out to his friends and family.

One of my favorite memories with Stan happened way back in high school. We had stayed up all night listening to music, debating life, and wandering around Irondequoit. It was definitely the first time I stayed up all night but it has stuck with me because of how I felt afterward. I felt accomplished, like we had unlocked something and the things we pondered were deep and meaningful. We had a pretty funny inside joke to remember this night by and I know he felt it was special too. You are loved brother!

I will always remember Alex as the strong silent type, an old soul and big teddy bear. Knowing his sister, Drea, and the love they shared as a family will be remembered forever. I know this is hard, just know I am thinking of you Dre. I love you.

My sweet brother, I miss your smile and laugh. It was always me and you, from the start. Always together, playing pretend and never once judging each other. I can't stop thinking of my 18th birthday, when you surprised me in Massachusetts. Just hearing your voice and seeing it was you. It had been so long that I didn't have you with me. That hug, tears of joy and just so much love. I miss you so much. Please always be by my side. I love love love you

When I think of Alex, I think of him trying to make sure people were having a fun time. He was someone who was always down to get into a little mischief, and sharing the laughs with friends. I hope now he can rest knowing his sister, family and friends will remember him that way too. All my love to you, Dre. We'll miss him.
