    Um ok!? What in the world.. This is my Aunt and all the spelling ain’t even correct in the obituary.. And that ad pic is ridiculous!

    You might want to complain to the person that submitted the obit, Brittany. The Packet doesn’t write this up…the family member submitting it does.

    The pizza ad was a mistake with our WordPress. The obits were not supposed to go on Facebook at all. Our apologies.
