My deepest heartfelt sympathy to all of the Williamson family
he is one person I will greatly miss a lot and I will miss shaking
hands with at Galilean Baptist Church.
  I believe that Stan has an antique tractor in heaven and that
he is painting them for maybe a gardener, but bottom line I
will greatly miss seeing with Jan, I miss all of my loved ones
that has gone to be with Jesus, my prayers are with the Williamson

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Stanley made many trips to Campbellstown to work on the corn dryer as I was growing up.
