I have observed that Hon. Fulton Yancy’s obituary does not mention a place for internment. Is there a specific reason why the information regarding his final resting place is omitted, or simply an oversight? If this is indeed an oversight, then it needs to be corrected, as this piece of information is crucial to the completion of the announcement.
I am simply inquiring out of curiosity and respect for the late great citizen of the great County of Maryland.
On behalf of the Peabody family, please accept our deepest regrets over the demise of this great Liberian son and jurist, Honorable Fulton Yancy. May his soul rest in peace and may light pepetual shine upon him.
Rest in peace, Counselor Yancy.
