It is with heartfelt sympathy that I share this condolence. So sorry I will not be able to share in the Memorial Service. Johnny Stanfield was one of those special members of the Class of 69. The first class to integrate Stoneville High School and he did it with class. He was always, kind, considerate and I remember his attire which was always impressive. He stood tall on the basketball team and was always ready to do his part. He will also be remembered for that smile that lit up a room. I bow in humble submission to the will of God. May you all be comforted at this time and in the days ahead. Deacon Roger Redd and Chaplain N. Lorraine Redd
