    Judy was always the same every time we saw her. She could always make you laugh, not smile, but laugh!! She will be missed. She was always the first one to put up her Christmas tree in Aquadale. You just had to love her. She was the last one in that row of houses to leave us. Now we have all the memories of trick-or-treating up the neighborhood and seeing all her decorations for every season. We will miss you Judy, but you won’t be forgotten.

    I loved Judy. I spent lots of time with her in years past. She was a ” trooper ” who endured so much in her life and never lost her smile. She will truly be missed by all who knew her. My thoughts and prayers are with all her family. I pray God will comfort and love you all during this difficult time. Hold on to the beautiful memories you have and they will help you in the days ahead. R.I.P. Sweet Judy…

    Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

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.
