    Ah me, (Dolan and I), Rachael and Grover, were such special friends when Dolan and I returned to Albemarle. We shared special times with you and Helen and Winifred Chandler (Dolan’s sister
    and brother- in -law) You were two very special Christians
    Sympathy to each family member. And may God’s love provide you strength and peace in this time of loss.

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.
