    Our prayers are with the family. Uncle Wade was such a friendly and kind man. He was also our neighbor for many years on Carter Road in New London. We loved him very much. We know that he now has peace and rest.

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.
