    I am so sorry for your loss. My father was Ralph Thomas (who passed in 2015). His mother was Grace Corriher Thomas. Ernest, I remember you and Judy from when I was a young girl. You may not remember me and my brother, Jeffrey. I will be praying for comfort during these difficult days ahead. Annette Thomas

    We used to walk by her house, every summer evening, and she would always be out on the porch and speak a kind and encouraging word. She will be missed. You will see her again one day. Know our prayers are with the family during this 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.
