((The notes of dismay, disbelief and devotion came from every corner of western and central Virginia.
And from all ages.
From Vinton (Larry Testerman): "Just wanted to say that there will never be another Roy Stanley because of his caring for the profession and for the people of the area. He will be greatly missed and loved by many."
From the New River Valley (Virginia Lucas/Newport): "He was a wonderful sports reporter, interesting speaker and his laugh was always an uplift for me to start my day. He definitely will be missed."
(Jonathan Fisher/Dublin) "I was very sorry to hear that Roy had passed. You are all a part of my life, and many others. Unlike the other stations you guys stick around, and that proves to me that it must be a pretty special place on the inside as well."
(Lori Howell/Madison Heights): "He seemed to have been one of those rare people who took time with the people he was interviewing. You could tell this by how at ease his guests felt in front of the camera. I know his family at home and at WDBJ will miss him dearly, but so will those of us on the other side of the screen."
And this tribute from a viewer in Christiansburg: (Paul Holland) "Roy's manner was one that, for me, exemplifies the whole of WDBJ-7. He was a professional, affable, "human" fellow, who reported to us the world of sports with the quiet dignity that uplifts us all. A credit to his family, to his co-workers and to the African American community, Roy's tenure with you will continue to be a source of pride and inspiration."
Roy Stanley covered a few track meets in his time. He knew what another writer of letters was talking about in a message to the early Christians in Corinth. "Do you not know", Saint Paul said, "that in a race the runners all compete but only one receives the prize? Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable crown; but we, an imperishable one."
So long, Roy.
Your fans hope you like your crown.
