She is a beautiful lady, and I know you will miss her dearly. I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around you and bring peace and comfort to your heart. I’ll never forget the good times we had growing up and our families visiting each others home.I have fond memories of the big house in New London and the special times with my favorite girl cousins, your sisters.You will be in my prayers as you grieve your loss. I Love You J.W.

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.
