The Post Bulletin now allows families to submit the obituary in paragraph form. The obituary will appear just as you write it. We will place an obituary for you in local and/or out-of-town papers of your choosing. Obituary charges vary greatly among papers and once the obituary is finalized we will be able to determine what each paper will charge you for running the obituary. A copy of the final obituary will also appear, at no charge, on our website, www.mackenfuneralhome.com. *Families that choose our Simply Cremation Plan, the obituary and service information will not be published on our website because we will not be conducting or over-seeing the service.
