    To the Hendrick family, Ron and I extend our heartfelt sympathy to you as you say good-bye for now to Mr. J.C. How well I remember Mrs. Onnie, Mr. J.C., Mrs. Pauline, Linda, and Billy at Oak Grove Church every time the doors opened. The faithfulness of the Hendrick family to the church during those years as we grew up provided a beautiful testimony to our Lord. May you feel God’s presence and grace in your lives daily and may He give you His comfort and peace. We send our love to each of you.

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.
