I see you have read some of my obits here, so this won't be new to you. I copied the text in below for the benefit of others.
Notes I try to copy into the bottom of every obit I look up:
Lakewood Memorial Park and Salas Brothers Funeral Chapel are both still in business. http://www.superpages.com/http://www.superpages.com/ will have their phone book listings.
I will send you the paper copy printed from the microfilm if you send me your street address privately.
I'm not related, nor did I know the family. I look these obits up to repay people who looked things up for me, by "paying it forward". If you have the time and inclination, you can look up an obit in your county for someone too.
