The prices go up from there and you need to scroll all the way past the first listed $500 obit, through the thousand dollar and $2500 obits, to even find the cheapest $300 one. Please tell me I'm missing something because that seems like an outrageous amount of money!

I think that it has a lot to do with the decreased circulation that newspapers have experienced in this age of the internet. Just look if you ever see anyone under 40 actually reading a newspaper?!! Many are now accustomed to getting their news for free on the internet. I think that it's only logical that newspapers are trying to generate income through other ways like jacking up obit prices.

Holding a seed in my hand & coming back as a tree would be nice!

What about a peach tree?

Got the idea when I went to visit friends near Boerne, Tx.
These were growing in the front yard.
