David and Fay, Please accept my sincerest condolences on the lost of both your father and brother. I was privileged to know Rev. Kingsborough and his wife Pearl as well as Stan.  Both your mother and father participated in our annual yard sales at Shepherdstown and of course Stan was always there.  Stan was a committed Christian man.  He was very committed to the work that he did for the church and he will be greatly missed.  I knew Stan from his days at Moore's Lumber Yard and worked with him on many events at the church.  It is tragic that you lost both your father and brother so closely together.  They will be missed but I'm sure they had a joyful reunion in heaven with Pearl.
Blessings and Peace to you and your whole family.
Ron Gruver
