    Doris, Susan, and all family,
    My heart aches for your loss but rejoices that Houston is now healed and happy. I feel privileged to have shared time with you again at Stanly Manor. God brought us together again thru a common bond of caring for our daddy’s.. I’m glad your daddy and my daddy got to talk about fishing! I can imagine Houston and Danny now catfishing in heaven! I’m praying for you all. God bless you!
    Love you

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.
