Without verification, we will not publish. Obituaries are a paid feature of The Lufkin Daily News. Cost is based on the length of the obituary. Once received, we will provide a quote. The deadline to submit an obituary is 4 p.m. for the following day's edition. The Lufkin Daily News assumes no responsibility for inaccurate information provided to us. Prepayment is required.
