“Now that I’ve been a part of (Modulist) for five months, I wouldn’t give that service up. It works very easily. Modulist verifies the death notices and the obits. It is very easy to work with. Now that I have that service, I would not give it up. The funeral homes that I have talked to, and worked with, love Modulist. In fact, when we took over the Stevens County Times, they came out and asked if we were going to keep Modulist. They like the access it gives them to put obits in multiple other publications. We set the prices; not Modulist. But it does not cost you anything.” — Publisher Shelly Anfinson, Stevens County Times (Morris, Minn.)
