“Heaven is sounding sweeter all the time…”
While we understand and grieve not as others do, the home going of a loved one leaves a void.
Debbie and I, and People’s Baptist Church are praying for you and the family.
I consider Stan one of my dearest and truest friends. While I shall greatly miss our frequent exchanges of insults together, I must say that my respect for his honor, integrity, dedication to God, family, and ministry will always be my greatest reflections of our short time together on earth. God bless you, his family members. The Lord with whom Stan now resides carefully watches over you all.
Friends from the first time we meet Bro. Stanley and the family. Love and prayers
I’ve known Stan since I was 5 years old. He was part of our Family, a big part of our Church in Washington, Pa. for many years.
Stan told my Dad often how he desired to preach and serve the Lord in any way He could. He’s gone too soon but life is fleetimg. He put a lot of time in on the Lord’s Work and his deeds will not go unnoticed in the sight of our Savior.
No doubt Stan is rejoicing around the Throne of God today with his Mom and Sister, my Dad and so many other of Gods children who went on before him and they, no doubt, met and welcomed him at the Pearly Gates.
Stan was a big personality that will be missed by all who knew him
Praying for your family during this difficult time. Praising God for providing us with salvation and the promise of eternity together. Stan and his beautiful family were truly a blessing with their beautiful ministry of music. May the Lord bless you all with comfort
I knew this lovely man & family through my brother Christopher. Chris never had a positive male role model in his life until he met Mr. Rodgers. He completely changed my brothers whole life around and even brought God into my brothers life. My brother was at a point in his life where he didn’t care anymore if he lived or not, and Mr.Rodgers took Christopher in and did not judge him but accepted him. I’m forever grateful for Mr.Rodgers and his family. Always in my prayers.
Our hearts go out to the family of this loss of a wonderful friend and dedicated Christain. He has beat us home to be with Jesus. We will meet again someday.
So saddened to hear of Stanley’s passing. He and I grew up on the same old country road in Claysville and were in the same classes throughout elementary school. My deepest sympathies to his family.
So sorry to hear of Stanley’s passing. We will keep you all in our prayers
