Condolences

  1. My sympathy to the Cantrall Family. I have known the family for years, Harold was in high school same time I was and his family were neighbors at Tice our parents played cards. I used to see he and Georgia when they were in Cantrall and our children were in school. May you find comfort they are together in heaven.

  2. Few things in life will ever affect us more deeply than the death of a parent. Not only do we have to endure the intense pain of  loss but we are also left to face a future that will likely be quite different from what we had expected. The Bible assures us  that death will be no more. May such promise  help you to cope with the loss of your Father. My deepest sympathy to each of you.

    Revelation 21:3-5
    John 5:28,29
    Psalms 37:29

  3. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to each of you for the loss of your Father. May you find comfort in each other. Our heavenly Father assures us that the day is coming in which he will wipe away those tears of sorrow from our eyes forever and death will be no more.
