    Much love to all of Aunt Joyce’s precious children, grandchildren, grands and adoring nieces and nephews! My heart goes out to you all. I will always cherish the wonderful memories of Aunt Joyce, Ray Von, Em, Wayne and all the family and the great stories – from the drive in in the back yard to painting at our house. She received her angel wings many years ago and is now wearing them in a heavenly manner. She was our favorite. She made the world better – can still hear her talking now! Her love lives on in the legacy she created and in her precious family. You and in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Love and Hugs to All.

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.
