    Our family got to know and love Mr.Ingram at Trinity. My dad, Melvin Blalock shared a room with him. I enjoyed talking to him so much when I visited daddy. He was so polite and always thanked me for visiting. He and daddy discussed a lot of “old times” and shared a lot of stories. I loved his hat and overalls. When daddy was in hospital he asked them every day when he would be back. When he returned they were happy to see each other again.. I’m sure they are rejoicing together in heaven..When daddy passed he was so sweet and respectful of us. May God bless you, his family with comfort and peace knowing he’s walking and happy and healthy with the Lord. You’re in my prayers for comfort . I loved him and will not forget him.

    I had the privilege of knowing Mr Ingram for many years. I handled his insurance coverage. After I retired I lost contact with him and others. But, I never forgot him and my other insureds. I am one of the many lives that Mr Ingram touched during his life on this earth.I am sorry for your 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.
