    Tracy & family, Robin & family,

    Our prayers and thoughts are with you all on the loss of Miss Billie. It has a battle for years, but the battle is over and she in the long run won the fight. Now she is at peace and you all have nothing to worry about because you will see her again, when Our Father in Heaven tells His Son to bring His children home. In a twinkling of an eye He will raise the dead, then those of us who are alive will be raised then join them all in the sky.

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.
