    Miss Margaret was a very special lady. Her bright smile and happy laugh always made me feel good every time I saw her. She loved people. She loved Amy and always had time for a hug and a word. She will be missed by everyone. She was so proud of all of her family, you all made her proud. Very loving Mother and Grandmother and Friend. God be with you all.

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.
