    Sandra was a sweet lady who I adored and who inspired me . Her confidence in the Lord was constant and she always wanted to share her love for Jesus. It wasn’t to long ago I found the card she sent to me after my mother passed inspiring me and letting me know she loved me. Steven you and your family are in my prayers. Your mother was a mother to many . She loved us all . RIP Sandra I love you and thank you for sharing your love with me. I was blessed to have you and your family in my life.

    I worked with Sandra at Northeast Orthopedics for several years. She was always such a sweet, caring, and thoughtful person. May your mother’s love for Jesus continue to shine through you, and may God’s love, mercy, and grace uphold you through this sad time. I am so very sorry for your loss. God Bless you all.

    I loved Sandra, for many years. Her parents were precious neighbors of ours. Stevie, many precious memories of your mom, and you boys, growing up. You had a mom so full of love for you boys, and for those she met. May God bless you and yours in the days to come. I love you and your family.

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.
