    This young man always was the brightest light in the room – with a beautiful smile, kind greeting, and warm welcome for everyone that he met. God has truly received an amazing soul. Know that he will be missed by the one’s that saw him from afar.

    Josh was a sweet young man from the first day i met him. No more pain and suffering he’s in the arms of Jesus. Praying for his family

    I didn’t know your son, but he looks like he was a fine young man. I just wanted you to know I share your pain, I lost my grandson 2 years ago at the age of 27. Every time I see a young persons obituary it takes me back to that heart wrenching time. Love and prayers for all of you.

    I didn’t know this sweet young man but I did know his aunt. It breaks my heart to hear of a young person losing their battle with cancer. It’s so unfair. Prayers to each and every member of his family. May God watch over you and give you the strength to move forward.

    Angie, Kevin, and Family, I am so sorry to read about Josh. I loved him as he was the sweetest little boy when he stayed at Tiny Tears. May God Bless you and your family with His Love and Strength!

      Thank you June. There is a huge hole in our hearts right now that only Josh could fill. We pray for God’s strength as we will miss him so much every day until we can be with our Josh again

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.
