  1. Frank/Becky and family:
    Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one and the hope that loving memories of times spent with her will help ease your sorrow. Also with the knowledge that she was a servant of our Lord Jesus that she will continue to be blessed.

  2. Dear Mr. Cancino and Becky,

    I am so sorry to read of your loss with Mrs. Cancino’s death. She was the gentlest, sweetest, and most delicate lady that I’ve ever met. She made a lasting impression on me when we were young Becky, and I thank you and your dad for sharing your mom’s special sweetness with all of us. I will always remember her musical laugh and her kindness. May she be at peace in God’s loving arms. Peace and fraternal love to you and your family.
