    Eddie, Kathy and families, I am so sorry for the passing of your mother. May God give you comfort and peace during this time. Your family has always held a special place in my heart. Love to all.

    Our sincere condolences to the family. May you find strength and comfort through your loving family and friends and through beautiful memories. Please know that God is near to those who are broken at heart. (Isaiah 25:8) You can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out I hope these scriptures bring you some comfort during this difficult time.

    I hope that in due time your family receives God’s peace that excels all thought, so that it will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. God is called the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. So rest assured that he cares for all his creatures and he would never bring us suffering. A soothing scripture I like is Psalm 34:18 which reads: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” Thus, while you await the Paradise where no one will be sick and die, may you lean on Jehovah God to cope with your separation from our beloved Edith.

    Kathy when I came to see you and your mom I had no idea that Kerry was your brother. I worked with him and have good memories. Saddened that I did not get to know your mom better but relieved her suffering is over.

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.
