Hi, I have quite a few obits from the Vandalia Leader Union- some from
Nov.--don't know if they were posted or not but don't think so. I have kept
all the obits I have posted and am going to subscribe to the paper for another
year at least so will have more to come. I am going to Vandalia Monday so if
you want a copy of an obit please wait till next Saturday the 11th to request
it.My mail box is liable to be full before then. Thanks.
