Stanley: I am very proud of the accomplishments you have made in your life and career. My name is James E. Lawson. I was raised in the same neighborhood as yourself. My family lived at 422 e. 40th street. I also attended Wendell Phillips High. I graduated in 1967. I knew your brother Wilbur. We attended Phillips at the same time.I know reside in Memphis, Tn. After retiring from the State of Illinois dept. of Children and Family Services, my wife, who is a native of Memphis decided to relocate to a warmer climate. (smile.). Again I applaud you for your achivements. I know your mother was very proud of you. It just goes to show the youth of today, from humble beginnings much can be accomplished by putting in the work that is reaquired to become a productive citizen.
thank you
