    Monday, Feb 18th, was a sad day for everyone who was part of Brenda’s life. She was my first cousin, a daughter to her father Bob Patterson who was a brother to my mother Irene Patterson. Although her physical beauty was evident throughout her life, it was her love of others (especially children) and her internal positive spirit that made her the one person you’d want as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, or friend, and like me . . “cousin”. My wife Flora and I love and miss you Benda, but we know you’re in a better place. We’ll definitely see you again welcoming us to Heaven with that great smile once again. May God provide comfort and grace to the Scarboro family in this time of grief and sorrow.

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.
