    Joe was a good guy. He and I played ball years ago with other players from Antioch Baptist Church on Sunday afternoon. I know he is in a better place and going to be missed.

    Sorry to hear about Joe’s passing, my wife and I visited Joe a couple times at Bethany Woods, we talked about our high school days and playing baseball. I also admired Joe’s Chevy Chevelle and when he traded for a newer model I ran down to the Chevy dealership and bought it. Joe will be missed by many of us who knew him. R.I.P. my friend. May God Bless 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.
