Thanks to all for helping celebrate the life of John Beale

To the editor:

Cannon Cleveland Funeral Directors would like to say "thank you" for your participation in honoring and celebrating the life of Sgt. First Class John Beale. Sgt. Beale's family has expressed to us great appreciation for Henry, Clayton and Fayette counties.

Cannon Cleveland Funeral Directors would also like to express our appreciation. The responses of law enforcement agencies, fire departments and the citizens of each county were overwhelming. The coverage provided by your newspaper played a big role in assuring that our community was aware, and therefore, could respond to the needs of the Beale family.

The gratitude shown for the ultimate price for freedom will forever be imprinted in the minds and hearts of Crystal, Christopher and Calye Beale.

GREG CANNON,

DONALD CLEVELAND
