The DAV or Disabled American Veterans sponsors a Van for veterans that are looking for transportation down to the Fargo VA Medical Center. There are similar vans all over the state of North Dakota but the one for our area starts out in Cavalier with pickup points in Grafton, Minto, Grand Forks and Hillsboro before finally reaching Fargo. The pickup point tbr Grafton is the Hugo's Parking lot at 7:45 a.m. and the pickup point in Minto is Koda Bank at 8:10 a.m. Veteran need to call and schedule a ride as the van will only stop at the pickup point if they have someone scheduled. Veterans cannot be pickup up at their residence and must be able to make it to the var- ious pickup and drop off locations. Veterans need to be alnbulatory in order to ride the van as it is not handicapped accessible. For those veterans requiring handicapped transportation please inquire further with our office. Starting in January 2016 the Van will primarily be traveling on Tuesdays and as such if you are scheduling your appointments with the Fargo VA and you know you will be riding the van, please make these appointments on one of the days that the van is making the trip to Fargo. If you would like to schedule a ride on the DAV van please call the Walsh County Veterans Service Office at 701-352-5030 or stop by for a visit at 638 Cooper Avenue Suite 5 Grafton, ND 58237. You may also schedule through the Pembina County Veterans Service office directly at 701-265-4460. Thank you for your service.

Here's what you should know, along with some tips and tools to help you write one. Obit Tips Before you start writing your obit, your first step is to check with the newspaper you want it to run in. Some newspapers have specific style guidelines or restrictions on length, some only accept obituar- ies directly from funeral homes, and some only publish obituaries writ- ten by newspaper staff members. If your newspaper accepts self- written obits, find out if they have a template to guide you, or check with your funeral provider. Most fu- neral homes provide forms for ba- sic information, and will write the full obituary for you as part of the services they provide. You also need to be aware that most newspapers charge by the word, line or column inch to pub- lish an obituary, so your cost will vary depending on your newspa- per's rate and length of your obit- most range between 200 and 500 words. What to Include Depending on how detailed you want to be, the most basic infor- mation in an obituary usually in- cludes your full name (and nick- name if relevant), age, date of birth, date of death, where you were living when you died, significant other (alive or dead), and details of the funeral service (public or pri- vate). If public, include the date, time, and location of service. Other relevant information you may also want to include is: cause of death; place of birth and parents names; your other survivors in- cluding your children, other rela- tives, friends and pets and where they live; family members who pre- ceded your death; high school and colleges you attended and degrees photo, and be sure to leave copies with your funeral director and/or immediate family members. Need Help? If you need some help writing your obituary there are free online resources you can turn to like lega- cy.com, obituaryguide.com or car- ing.com/obituary, which offer tips, templates and sample obits. Or, if you want your obit to be more memorable, purchase the ObitKit (obitkit.com). This is a $20 workbook that helps you gath- er the details of your life so you can write an obituary that will reflect your personality and story. Ethical Will If you're interested in writing your own obituary, you may also be interested in writing a legacy letter or ethical will. A legacy letter is a heartfelt let- ter that you write to your loved ones sharing with them your feelings, wishes, regrets, gratitude and ad- vice. And an ethical will (which is not a legal document), is like an ex- tension of a legacy letter that many people use to express their feelings as well as explain the elements in their legal will, give information about the money and possessions they're passing on, and anything else fl~ey want to comrnunicate. For help in creating these, there are lots of resources available like celebrationsoflife.net and person- allegacyadvisors.com, which offers practical information, examples and materials you can purchase to help you put it together.
