    When I think of Stanley, I envision him as the patriarch of Maysville. He was such a gentle soul and an asset to the community. Most importantly, he was an amazing family-man. I loved sharing a church with he and Jean Anne. Praying for peace.

    I’m so sad about the passing of Stanley who was such a kind and gentle soul. Julie and I were fortunate to spend time with Stanley and Jean Anne this January when they visited with Alma Lee and Jim in Florida. Stanley met our giant goldendoodle, Mr. Darcy, and it was evident that his heart is full of love for animals. He spoke about his rescue dogs over the years and we all shared some laughs. My heart goes out to Jean Anne and the family of this sweer and much loved man who will be greatly missed. I hope the memories that you all have of Stanley will help to pull you through this very sad time. Love Pat & Mr. Darcy

    So sorry to hear that Stanley has passed on. The whole Bird clan was a good neighbor. Living along Route A, you always knew the Birds were just up the road if you needed something. The farms were always well kept. Good First Christian Church people, too. My sincere condolences to the whole Bird family.
