    Kenneth and family,
    My deepest sympathy goes out to you. Tammy was a wonderful person and will be missed by many. Even though years and miles have kept us from being a part of each other’s daily lives we still remained friends. Kenneth, I know exactly what you are going through since I just lost Eric on May 22nd. The pain is almost unbearable and if it weren’t for family, friends and above all my belief that I will be reunited with Eric in eternal life just as you will be with Tammy there is no possible way I could get through another day. Your family, friends and God will give you the comfort and peace you will need to get through each day as well. May God bless you and your family!

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.
