    Dear Family,
    I send to you my heartfelt condolence on the loss of your dear family member. May John 5:28,29 truly strengthen you to reflect on God’s promises to bring back to life your dear loved one to a beautified earth where she can be reunited with her family, and never have to get sick and die, ever again. (Psalm 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24)

    I have so many memories of us as kids and young adults. I remember one summer I think we were inseparable. Life is too short and I sure will miss our times together. I always hoped we would reconnect at some point in our busy lives. I sure will miss you. Always in my heart. <3

    The angels looked down from heaven one night.
    They searched for miles afar,
    And deep within the distance
    They could see a shining star.
    They knew that very instant
    That the star was theirs to gain,
    So they took you up to heaven,
    Forever to remain.

    Look down on us from heaven.
    Keep us free from hurt and pain.
    You’ll always be within my heart
    Until we meet again.

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.
