    We were honored to serve as the Crowders’ pastors for many years. We have special memories of them.
    Stanley had a great singing voice & used it for the Lord, & served the Lord & His church in many ways.
    Our prayers & condolences are with Virginia & the children as they walk these uncharted paths. Blessings on all of you.

    Aunt Ginger, Jenny, Tim and families,

    Your dedication and support to Uncle Stanley these past years have been a beautiful testament to your deep love for him and each other. You’ve modeled Christ’s commandment to “love one another; as I have loved you”; sacrificially giving of yourselves during his illness. I fondly remember visits from your family when Uncle Stanley and mom would harmonize over the piano, singing beautiful melodies to our King. What an honorable legacy to leave to us! Uncle Stanley was such a joyful presence, always good for a laugh, that I know the coming days without him here will be difficult. I pray that God’s Spirit will be merciful, gentle and ever-present to your family.

    With much love,
    Kim Porter and family
