    Dear Hathcock family,
    Please accept my condolence at this difficult and painful time for I lost my entire family to our enemy death and I’d like to share where I found help at that time. I found hope and comfort in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there we’re told we’ll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth also at ICorinthians25:26 we’re told that this enemy death will be gone forever. With these scriptures and jw.org I’m able to cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I’ll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you now when comfort and hope is needed in hopes that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you’ll feel free to let me know if this helped.
    I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, GM

    Lorie, Jake and Jeffrey I am so sorry that your loved one has passed away, but we know our loss is heavens gain. Take comfort in knowing his pain is over and he is fully enjoying paradise. I will continually pray for God to give you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

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.
