    “A true friend is never truly gone. Their spirit lives on in the memories of those who loved them.” Not only did I work with you, We were also friends outside of work. I will truly miss you… Rest In Peace my Friend.

    I’m deeply sorry for the loss of a great person. He had a wonderful heart . I’m so grateful for the time that I had with him. We always kept in touch no matter what!! I would check in with him and he’d check in with me and now those will only be memories but I sure am gonna miss those talks. You are now flying high with Chilly Willy. I love you my friend and can’t wait to see you on the other side. ♥️

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.
