(Additional Note)

Dear Ms. Kenyon,
I was searching for something else on the internet and came upon my mother's obituary from 2004 (amazing thing, this internet!).
In the interest of accuracy, historically speaking, would it be possible to make corrections?  There are several things that are not accurate, such as the spelling of our name and our location.  ( Our sons' names are spelled correctly, but ours is not)    I realize that this was submitted to you and it was probably printed as received, but funeral homes do make mistakes!

The corrections are these:

"Hutchinson" should be Hutchison
"Neillsville"  should be Frederic   and
"Frederic"   should be Neillsville
(In other words, Rev. Rich Hutchison and Kathy live in Frederic.  Richard and Anita Slone live in Neillsville.)
The things that need to be changed are highlighted, in bold, in red below

Thank you for any attention you might be able to give to this matter.
Kathy Slone Hutchison
