    Mr and Mrs Morgan, I don’t know of anything that prepares us for loosing our children, except for our trust in God. Corey was such a fun loving young man who touched so many lives. My prayers continue for you all, Emma and Blythe also, that you may have peace come to you each day. We certainly loved and enjoyed Corey here on Earth , now we look forward to the day we see him and Chase again !! God bless !!

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.
