    What a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, aunt, and friend. Now she is with Jesus waiting for her family to meet her worshiping and praising God. But most of all, that her life gave you memories too beautiful to forget.
    May God give you…
    Strength, Grace, Hope, Gentleness, Peace, Reassurance, and Joy!
    Memories of a wonderful woman that only God knew would be a part of your family and your life…For memories last a lifetime.
    May the Love of those around you, the Peace which comes from the memories of Love shared with Alleain, and God’s loving arms comfort you now and in the days ahead.
    Mary/Jerlean Eggleston and Kelly Hamilton

    Hoping that in due time your family receives solace from the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort. He promised that in the Paradise life will be a delight, more than we can imagine. Until then, trust that Jehovah God heals the brokenhearted and he binds up their wounds. Wishing you the strength you need in the days ahead.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


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.


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