    I am so disgusted. …. You all refused to put in my nephews obituary Sidney Clark Burrell that he and Jeffery Guess were partners for over 17 yrs! That hurt not just Jeffery but our entire family. You should update /change your so called rules! Its 2017 and the LGBT community is still being discriminated! Sidney was the best person, nephew, friend, and I considered him my son. The least that could have been done is the love he and Jeffery had all those yrs! ! SHAME ON YOU!!!!
    Outraged citizen,
    Angela J Burrell
