Space for obituaries is reserved based on the word count of the obituary submitted by the funeral home or family. The cost is $12.50 per column inch. Please see the word count grid below for pricing information. Please note, the numbers on the word count grid represent the maximum number of words allowed in the corresponding amount of space for that price.
The best way to submit the obituary is through this form, however, information can be submitted via email. You may send all of the information to email@example.com. Please allow 24 hours for confirmation of receipt.
If you would like to submit a photo of the deceased, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the deceased's name in the subject line.
