    I am sorry to hear of Ms. Nina’s passing. She was a lifetime member of VFW Post 2908 Auxiliary in Albemarle. In her memory, the auxiliary is making a donation to the VFW National Home for Children which provides much needed support to veteran families in need. We hope that the spirit of our donation is one that Ms. Nina would approve of.

    Thank you for the condolences and the gift in her memory. She often gave to charities, especially those serving children and mothers.

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.
