    What you wrote was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier title? I ain’t saying your information is not good,
    however suppose you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Harold Bost Palmer
    – Stanly Funeral Home is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article headlines to get viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people interested
    about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.

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.
