Thank you SO much for your help! I honestly figured I was wasting my time by putting a message on this site, but I saw where you replied on the very same day!! I had actually already searched in the Archives of the Iola Register before ever giving up, but I came up with nothing! I don't know what I did differently this time (other than follow your instructions!), but there it was...plain as day! Again, thank you very much for your help with this. I'm not sure I was quite ready for such a nicely written obit, especially with it's being so detailed in the description of his life. I think I'm going to walk outside now for a breath of fresh air and a good cry! Thanks again!!
: Please do a search for Iola Register. Once
: you find that site go to left side of site
: and scroll down to Archives. Once there you
: can put the date you need in the box and you
: will find your dad's obit. If you have any
: problems please let me know and I'll send
: the link to you. I just think it will be
: easier this way. Also you can see that I
: have a link for the Register on my index
: page on this site. For convenience you may
: want to use it.
