Remember, some obituaries may just show the date of death. When requesting give us the exact information shown on the entire line.   Please copy the entire line in your request.  There may be times that it takes a couple of weeks to get your obituary  either in the mail or via email.  If you have not received your obituary within three weeks, please send a "second request" email.

The city is shown if there is a city listed in the obituary. The city does not necessarily reflect the place of death but usually the residence.  If  blank and shows “SR,” probably Hot Springs.
