We are truly sorry for your loss. "Slick" made a friend of everyone that he met. It was truly a pleasure having Mr. Cannon hunt with us. He will be missed. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Jack and Gracie were my neighbors on Ardmore Boulevard for over 30 years. When I began having health problems, he was always worried about me, stopping over to check up on me. My deepest sympathy to his family. He will be missed.
