    I was so saddened to hear this news. Robert was a wonderful, caring person. I had just been thinking about him and started to call him last week. He really helped me when my husband was sick and treated me like a daughter. I’ve known him for about 30 years when he started selling insurance at the City of Concord. Thank you Robert for your friendship and all you’ve done for me. I’m praying for all of the family during this difficult time.

    I’m sorry for the hurt that the passing of Robert will bring to you Judy & family, Barbara & family and Brenda & family. After he is done sitting at Jesus’ feet and praising HIM, seeing all his family, I believe him & daddy will be talking …. something they both loved to do. You all are in my prayers.

    My dearest Judy,
    I am so very grateful to have met your sweet husband. Although he wasn’t feeling well when you invited me for dinner he was a real trooper and I will never forget how kind he was and how delicious his roast pork was. I will cherish that memory forever. We are praying for you and those who loved your precious Robert. May the Lord richly reward you for taking care of him in such a loving and sacrificial way. ❤️

    Sandy and I send our condolences. Robert was a great Brother-In-Law. I always enjoyed visiting and talking with him. He was very knowledgeable in many areas. He loved his Church, family and community and will be sorely missed . But, we rejoice that he is reunited with family and friends in heaven.

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.

-DBN

The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.

-anonymous

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.
