    Oh how sad it’s been some time since I seen Charles and I thought it had been on my account. I guess maybe it’s been since he has been at Bethany Woods. May God bless his friends and family during this difficult time.. I know that heaven is sweeter for many as it is starting to gain some sweet souls as the years pass by..hugs and prayers for friends and family

    Charles was a sweet soul. He loved to crack jokes and strike up a conversation. Heaven sure got a good one!

    We sure are going to miss seeing you around town….the post office….the BARBER shop…the Breakfast Book. You were our neighbor for almost 20 years. You watched my kids grow up. You were always had a huge smile on your face and every time you would see us you would throw your thumb up saying “what’s your name?”. I am so glad we had the opportunity to know you. May you RIP my friend.

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Charles. I ran into him a few times at the New London post office . There was a few times he would have me get his mail out of his box. I was more than glad to help him, he was a super nice person. Thoughts and prayers for all of his family.

    Charles was such a nice guy and never met a stranger and a friend to all. Fly with the angels my friend.

    Charles was a very nice man. Met him for the first time in 2000 at the New London post office. Then I would see him in the Fast stop store often. He always had a smile on his face, and he was always friendly. Sending prayers for his family

    So sorry to hear of Charles Graham’s passing, always loved talking with him in Walmart, he always was positive, never a negative thought. Charlie & Lisa sorry we couldn’t make it to visitation, had just got out of hospital for a knee replacement. May God Bless the Graham 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.
