    Amanda was a beautiful young lady whose life touched many with her smile and thoughtful ways. She loved life and her family, and she knew the love of her close family. We were not ready for her to leave, but God was ready to welcome her into his arms. We will never understand God’s plan but our hope and faith is all we have to bring us through our sorrows. I wish there were words to comfort you, but know we love you David & Janice and would do anything to take away your sorrow.

    Amanda, in my mind you are still that bright shining, precious, and smart little girl with an infectious smile in my first 1st-grade class at East Albemarle. I remember each student in that class as if it was yesterday. My heart goes out to your family – especially your mother and children. Peace and love be with you and your family! God’s peace dear angel.♥️

    Amanda was a beautiful and kind young lady. She always greeted you with a smile and kind words.
    Please allow me to leave with you the words of our Heavenly Father, found in the book of Matthew 5:4

  • Kathy D Howard Posted February 17, 2019 3:58 pm

    Janice – I do not know any words that can ease the pain in your heart. I do know this; you were the best mother that a daughter could ever have on this Earth. You loved and gave your all, your very best to Amanda. I do know that life goes on. I know you will be strong and get through the hurt and the loss. You will be there for Amanda’s children just as she would like to have been. And, Amanda will still be with you. She will be there in the everyday things of life; in the eyes of her children, in the Camellias blooming in your yard, the flowers in spring, the green bell peppers you chop, in all the little things you both shared. She will remain in your heart and soul and mind for all of time. My love to you sweet friend and to your dear husband David. God Bless you all. Kathy Howard

    Janice – I’m so sorry for your loss. As parents, we’re never supposed to bury our children, and when that happens, it’s so difficult to understand. I will lift up your family for peace, for strength and for encouragement. May God’s blessings be upon you during the difficult 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.
