  4. Cousin George Stanley, I was saddened when I heard of your passing. Although I did not get the opportunity to meet you face to face, we did have many good conversations on the Gage Family Connection via FB. I will always cherish those moments, as well as our chats. We had begun sharing family pictures as a way of getting acquainted. I will miss those times. I didn’t get to meet you face to face but hearing the stories that your sister, Dorothea shared with me, I know you are a good man and you were loved. You’re home now, all is at rest, and one day I will see you. To my Oakley family, my heart goes out to you. Please know you are in our prayers and may God grant you his comfort and peace during these times. Earth has no sorrow, that Heaven cannot heal. Love, Cousin Brenda

  5. To Valrie, Dennis, Dorothy and the entire Oakley Family, please accept my condolences for the Home Going of Stan. I am truly saddened at hearing that he passed… He will be missed. Growing up as neighbors; we were one big-happy family. Stan was like a big brother to me. My heart truly aches right now…. His laugh was large and he laughed with his shoulders going up-and-down and he would bend over from joy! He was a lot of fun. I am happy to know that Heaven has welcomed an angel and he’s smiling on us now. Val, I am praying much for you… I did not have a opportunity to meet Stan’s daughter and grandchildren, but I am positive they are true sweethearts, because Stan was a very kind man.

    Peace be unto you Family.🎚🙏🏿🌹

    Love, your Friend for Life. ❤️

  6. Beloved Brother Stan,
    You came into this world too soon, too soon, too soon. When you came to us, you and I were barely a year apart. Yet somehow we welcomed you into our family, taking your place as the first male son to our parents. As the years when by, you grew and grew and grew, much taller than I. Eventually it became obvious that God sent us a very special “big brother”.
    Now sadly we say, just as you came you also went . . . too soon, too soon, too soon. Although you are gone from our presence you continue to be in our hearts and memories. We will never forget your smile, your grin, your laugher, your deep yet gentle way of speaking and your kind heart.
    It was my joy to hear you speak of your children and grandchildren. It obvious they were dear and special to you. In those moments, as in others, I realized what a masterpiece of a man you were becoming. Now that you are home with God the masterpiece will be complete. Love and honor I give to my brother Stan.

  7. My condolences to
    George family.
    I meet him at VA Hospital
    Every time we saw each
    other, we had a conversation.
