    Sad to see you gone so soon. No more pain and no more suffering. Fly high my friend. I will see you again someday. You may be gone but never forgotten. You will be missed

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I came to know Ashley when she was a student at New London Middle School. It was discovered that she had been the victim of some very serious crimes. She was such a brave, young and strong girl that I was able to arrest, charge and convict they guilty person. God bless Ashley.

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.
