Grief & Healing

The Jouney Through Grief

The death of someone loved changes our lives forever. And the movement from the “before” to the “after” is almost always a long, painful journey. There are six “yield signs” you are likely to encounter on your journey through grief – what I call the “reconciliation needs of mourning.” For while your grief journey will be an intensely personal, unique experience, all mourners must yield to this set of basic human needs if they are to heal.

The Mourner’s Bill of Rights

Though you should reach out to others as you do the work of mourning, you should not feel obligated to accept the unhelpful responses you may receive from some people. You are the one who is grieving, and as such, you have certain “rights” no one should try to take away from you.

Accountability

In accepting our responsibilities, and as a condition of our affiliation with Selected Independent Funeral Homes,
we affirm the following standards of good practice and hereby pledge:

  • To provide the public with information about funeral and cremation services, including prices, functions and the responsibilities of funeral directors.
  • To make services available in as wide a range of price categories as necessary to meet the needs of all segments of our community, and to affirmatively extend to everyone the right to inspect and freely consider them all
  • To quote conspicuously in writing the charge for every arrangement offered, and to clearly identify the services, facilities, equipment and merchandise included in such quotations.
  • To adhere to the highest standard of conduct in all aspects of business.
  • To afford an ongoing opportunity to all persons to discuss or arrange funerals in advance.
  • To ensure that pre-need contracts fully disclose those items which are guaranteed and those which are nonguaranteed, in terms that are clear and easy to understand.
  • To manage prepaid funds responsibly, ensuring that promises are honored and expectations are met, within the letter and spirit of the law.
  • To make no representation, written or oral, which may be false or misleading and to apply a standard of honesty in all dealings.
  • To furnish each family, at the time arrangements are made, with a written memorandum of charges and to make no additional charge without their approval.
  • To respect all faiths, creeds and customs, and to give full effect to the role of the clergy/celebrant.
  • To maintain qualified and competent staff, appropriate facilities and suitable equipment required for comprehensive funeral and cremation services.
  • To assure those we serve the right of personal choice in making service arrangements.

We pledge to conduct ourselves at all times in a manner deserving of the public trust,
and to provide a copy of this Code of Good Practice to the families we serve.

We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.

Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.

-DBN

The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.

Excellent customer service and attention to detail from start to finish.

Personal touch – treated you like family – genuine expression of sympathy and condolences-

We personally know these folks and they have served our family and extended family since the early 1960s.
