Bobbie. Linda and CJ. I am so sorry that we will not be able to attend the services for Aunt MAC but want you to know our hearts and prayers are with you. She was a great lady with a big heart and an even greater smile. I’ll always remember how she lovingly and religiously sent cards for every birthday. She lived a long and beautiful life-the proud matriarch of the Cannon clan for many years. May she rest now in heaven with all those that have gone before her. There is probably a great euchre game going on up there right now. God bless!
