I met Mr Stalvey when I was Frankewing's postmaster. He was a kind, friendly gentleman and always had a cheerful smile. When he would pick up his mail, he would always have a funny little story to tell. During gardening season, he would bring flowers, fruits & vegetables to share with his neighbors.
Mr. Stalvey was a wonderful person, a truly "good man" and a kind friend.
