    My heart & prayers for comfort go out to Gary along with the other family members that must be heartbroken right now. My Mother worked with Ingrid for several years & she considered her a friend. 💛

    Gary, we are sorry to learn of your mom’s passing in July. Just today, August 5th, Saturday saw the obituary in the SNAP. We were friends with your mom and dad when we were young marrieds here in Albemarle. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers for God’s peace and presence as you go through the upcoming days. We wish we could have come by to see you.

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.


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.
