    Did not have the privilege of meeting Richard that I know of. He appears to be a fine person. I just want you to know that there are a lot of us that have faced what you are going through. My grandson took his own life 2 years ago. It left a big hole in my heart that will never leave me. He was 27. I just wanted you to know that we are your prayer warriors, in the background and if you ever feel that you need help just remember you are in our prayers.

    My sincere love and condolences go out to Rich’s family and friends. We’re all still battling the loss as Rich was my best friend and like a brother to me and I believe the only friend that my wife really did love as well. Life will never be the same again. I’ll always be there for the Keable family

  • Barbara Bost Posted December 5, 2017 8:33 pm

    Dick & Ann,

    So sorry to hear about RJ. We’ll be praying for your whole family that the Lord will comfort you and hold you close now and always. If I can help in any way, please let me know.

  • Dorothy and Ken Plantz Posted December 8, 2017 7:57 am

    Our hearts cry out with yours. We send our prayers and love your way.

  • Tom Keldorf Posted December 8, 2017 4:31 pm

    Cousin Ann and Dick my sympathy goes out to you over the loss of RJ

  • Jon Posted December 17, 2017 11:03 pm

    So sorry to hear this terrible news. I had the privilege of working with Richard for a couple of years. Richard immediately took me under his wing and befriended me. As I was in college at the time, Richard would always talk to me about the importance of school and encourage me to keep my head down. Richard was a great man, and an even better friend to everyone he met. You’ll be missed my friend. Thank you for your friendship, the countless laughs, and the support you always showed me.

    I miss you so much dad <3

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.
