    He will forever be one of my favorite people. I have enjoyed working with him over the years. Enjoying his jokes and his wisdom. His love for his family was obvious. The service today was the most beautiful,uplifting service I have ever attended.

    I will continue to pray for all of you.

    I told Stan that he was my favorite cousin, and I meant it! What an exceptional person he was! Strong in his convictions and faith, he was determined to live (and die) in a way that glorified his Lord. He was a fighter, a servant, a warrior, a witness. We have so many fond and funny memories of his visits to my parents farm in Mississippi. He will be missed by so many people, especially this ole cuz. Rest in peace, sweet cousin and friend, you are the epitome of a life well lived.

    So sorry to hear about Big Stan’s passing. He definitely was a positive role model to all who knew and met him. I knew his hope was in Jesus the first time I met him. Praying God’s comfort over the family during this time of loss.
    🙏🏻 Chad and Jeanette

    1 Blessed is the man[a]
    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
    nor stands in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
    2 but his delight is in the law[b] of the Lord,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.
    3 He is like a tree
    planted by streams of water
    that yields its fruit in its season,

    and its leaf does not wither.
    In all that he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:1-3

    Blessed to have known Stan… We are praying for yall… much love, Bobby and Janet

    So sorry to hear of Stan’s passing. He was most definitely a leader among men. We were blessed to have Stan in our lives. It was an honor to serve with him as a deacon and fellow servant of Christ. I cherished Stan’s Godly wisdom and insight. Praying for you, Patti, Laura, Larry, Craig and fàmily for God’s comfort and peace. No question that we will see him again. God bless you.
    Much love, Ed and Pam Danley
