Dear Cannon Family, I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34;18) He has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) With deepest sympathy,

Sammy & Judy, I knew your mom from NHC in Gwd, when she and Ms. Utsey were roommates. I am so sorry for your loss. She was such a sweet lady, and I enjoyed my visits with her while she was here. Her Ms. Grace were such a pair! I could have listened to their stories and conversations all day long! Heaven has gained an angel, but she will be missed. I will be praying for y'all and your family as you face this difficult time.
