Condolences

I’m so sorry for your loss. I haven’t seen Mr. Cavanaugh in a long time, but I have some fun memories of him from ITC. I remember he would always ask Mr. Grose if he was making steak and eggs for breakfast, even though it was most likely oatmeal or grits. I will be thinking of you all and praying for you!

Even now we are benefiting from this man and his dear wife's wisdom that they so prayerfully sought and taught as they reared their children. Such a legacy of love and obedience as the Truth from God's Word was taught and is now shared from their children to us. Praise the Lord for obedient children because of obedient parents. We are praying for all the family. Such a tender loss.

I am so sorry for the loss of a much loved husband/father/grandfather. I have so many memories of babysitting ALL of the Cavanaugh kids, my dad and Mr Cavanaugh going soulwinning, our dads doing various jobs at Calvary, and so much more.

Heaven is a sweeter place with your husband/dad there. I am sure him and my dad are having a wonderful time catching up about their families and how they have grown over the years. Love to you all!!
