Keepsake Plaques

The News & Record includes a commemorative keepsake plaque with every paid obituary submission. We provide these displays as a service to our families so that they can continue to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones. 

We are able to provide additional keepsake plaques to family members upon request. If you or a family member would like to purchase additional plaques, please feel free to send a request to or call us directly at 336-373-7072 to place an order over the phone. 

In-Memoriams and Thank You Notices

In addition to obituaries, the News & Record is also able to publish in-memoriams and thank you notices on behalf of family members. In-memoriams are used to commemorate a significant day in a deceased individual's life. It is common for family members to place these ads on an individual's birthday, wedding anniversary, or day of passing. Families can also choose to publish a thank you notice as an expression of gratitude toward their friends and places of worship, who often provide valuable support and services to the families as they are mourning. 

If you would like to publish an in-memoriam or thank you notice in our paper, please send your ad to and request a free quote or call us at 336-373-7072 for more information.
