    Dear James, Mary Burt and all family, So saddened to hear of Ms, Doris passing. My dad went to school with her and through him and You, James, I got to know this sweet southern lady. Thoughts of you during these difficult days.

  • Sandy Maiden Posted December 29, 2017 12:19 pm

    Mary Burt, I was so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a lovely lady and so very nice. She always asked about my family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your Dad and all of your family. Take comfort in having wonderful memories, a wonderful family and friends.

    Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

  • Maria Smith Ray Posted January 4, 2018 11:54 am

    My sincere condolences. Doris was a very giving and inspirational spirit in our community and will always .be remembered.
    Prayers to Ritchie , Mary Burt & all the family.

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.
