  1. To the family: I feel sorry for your loss but it would of been better if you could of kept the obituary notice out of the Vilas County News-Review paper. We are a small town up here and really love the people who live up here, not the ones who just come to visit twice a year.I believe the death notices should be kept for the ones who actually gave years to this area. Just keep this in mind for future reference. Thanks
