    Tony and family I want to send my condolences to y’all and also my love and prayers. I have such great memories of your mom. Alothough I lost touch over the years she was in my thoughts and as a child was the best of memories. She had a very loving heart. Sorrow is hard I am still going through grief over losing my husband in March will be 2 yrs and I can promise you that our great God will not leave you alone. He is there with you and for you to lean on him and come to him for help and comfort. Please know you are in my prayers. Love you always your cousin Naomi Furr Poole ❤️

    Dear Tony and family, It is with great sadness to hear of Aunt Alma’s passing. She was always so kind to us girls and I shall never forget her goodness. She was my favorite aunt and I always looked forward to seeing her on our Sunday trips to grandmas. God bless you all.

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.
