. A trained consultant will contact you to confirm obituary publication; an obituary will not be published without pre-payment and confirmation of the deceased's date of death. For this purpose please be sure to include the name and phone number of the funeral home or crematory with which you are working so we may verify the date of death. To have an obituary published for multiple days, there will be a 50% discount for the second publication and no charge for the third publication.
