    Reydell AR
    Arkansas Democrat-Gazette; 26 February 2012

    In Ray's obituary, I found no mention of the city where the funeralhome or cemetery is.  In this Stuttgart newspaper, the obituary iswritten as though everything is local and well known by all readers.A search indicates the only Graceland Cemetery in that part of thestate is in Pine Bluff.  The website of Robinson and Sons Funeral Homegives their address as Pine Bluff.  It is very odd that the place ofvisitation and burial are not mentioned at all.
