Stanley was a great person. I had the pleasure of working with him at SRS, sold him a pickup and always enjoyed chatting with him at the recycle in Windsor. He will surely be missed as he already has been by the folk around Windsor. We were praying for him during his illness and will continue to pray for peace for the family during this time of sorrow. Love, Danny and Joy Gantt

I am sorry to hear of your loss. One of the most difficult things we have to deal with is the death of a loved one. The Bible promise: "God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." The Bible also says: "Throw your burden on God and he will sustain you." (Psalm 34:18 and 55:22) I hope this message offers comfort in your time of sadness.
