3. How can I view other entries for this Guest Book?

To view Guest Book entries, first locate the obituary or death notice. If the obituary includes a Guest Book, a link that reads "View all messages" will appear below the obituary. Clicking this link will bring you to the page where you can view all current entries. Please note that our staff screens all Guest Book entries for appropriate content before placing them online. Typically, entries appear online within a few hours. In rare cases, however, there may be a delay. If the Guest Book includes the sentence, "We encourage you to be the first to share your memories or express your condolences," this means that we have not yet approved any entries for online posting.

4. How can I keep a Guest Book online longer?

Keeping this Guest Book available online is a wonderful way to allow those who knew your loved one to express their sympathy and share fond memories. Even if you are not a member of the family, consider keeping this Guest Book open as a special gift to the family. Keep this Guest Book online by purchasing a sponsorship. By doing this, you'll be giving loved ones a place to express their feelings, and share memories any time they'd like in the months and years ahead.

To sponsor a Guest Book, click "Keep Guest Book Online" at the top of the Guest Book page. This will take you to a page where you can view options for extending the Guest Book past the current expiration date and place an order online.

If you do not see this link, the Guest Book has already been sponsored.

If the Guest Book has already been sponsored for one year and you would like to extend it further, please check the Guest Book approximately five days before the current sponsorship is due to expire. At that time, there will be a link on the Guest Book page to extend the sponsorship.
