    Julie, Hailey, Eddie, no words can take away your pain, but I just want you to know that God loves you and He feels your pain. I loved having Tyler in my Awana class for several years and then Hailey. I am so saddened by your loss and would love to visit with you at Stanly funeral home but due to the current situation with COVID 19, I feel uncomfortable doing so. I have and will continue to pray for you all.

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.
