    Sybil is a wonderful smiling lady. She is more alive today than ever before. She just changed addresses. Now there is no more pain or tears. Psalm 16 says “I set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore, my heart is glad, my tongue rejoices and my body will live in HOPE.” Peter quoted this on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:25-26) after Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. Jesus said, “Because I live you too shall live!”

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.
