Preparing an Obituary for Shipmate / Last Call

Please note that we have a maximum word limit of 400 words. One photo may accompany the text. We request that irreplaceable photos not be sent in case of loss or damage in transit. If sending the photo electronically, please be sure the resolution is at least 300 dpi. Close-up photos work best since the final photo will be about 1" x 1.5".  You can submit an email request for decedent’s yearbook photo.
