    Larry was a Special friend and a big brother to me, He always had something good to say to me. He would text me about every day and say I hope you and your family are doing well today and have a good day brother. Some days I would text him first and he would always text me back.
    We talked about every day I am going to miss him so much!!!
    He will always have a special place in my heart.
    Rest in peace brother I love 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.
