Please include the following information in your email:
Once we have received your email with all the information listed above, we will create an account for you, enter the obituary in our system and send you an email with a proof of what the obituary will look like in the printed newspaper, a price quote and deadline for payment. At this time, you may use the link, username and password provided to you in the email to make any necessary changes and pay for the obituary. Please note that we need to receive payment before the deadline for the date you have selected for the print obituary or it will not be approved to print.
Payments can be made by using the payment link provided to you in our response email or with one of our representatives over the phone. Once you have paid for your obituary, you will receive a receipt, and you can expect to see the obituary posted online and in the edition of the paper you chose. Once the deadline has past, the obituary can no longer be changed, cancelled or refunded. We reserve the right to edit, refuse, reject any content before final approval.
Before we can publish the obituary, we must verify the passing of the deceased with a licensed party for our records. If you are not working with a funeral home, the name and number of a mortuary, crematorium, or medical donation program will also be sufficient. If you do not have that information, we can also accept a scanned death certificate. The information provided for verification purposes will remain private and will not published in the obituary.
If you would like to print your obituary on Thursday, we need to receive all obituary information and payment by 5:00 PM CT three working days prior.
