Jim, you may have already seen this by now. Regards, Tom Belton, NC Museum of History

There will be a viewing and vigil service for Devereaux at Saint John

Vianney Catholic Church Tuesday evening from 5-7:30. The vigil service

begins at 6.

The funeral will be held at 9:30 Wednesday morning, once again at SJV

Catholic Church. The internment will be at the City Cemetery. After the

burial, we will return to Rosehill for a wake.

Nora requests that instead of flowers, memorial donations be made to either

the Carter House (PO Box 555, Franklin, TN 37065) or to SJV church (449 N

Water St, Gallatin, TN 37066).

Thank you,

Joleen Cannon

It is with great sadness that I must let you know that Devereaux Cannon passed away very suddenly on December 29, 2007. Devereaux was a very dear and close friend not only to me but so very many people both in an out of politics. A devoted husband and father, he will leave a great void with his passing. The family will be receiving friends on Tuesday January 1 from 5:00 to 7:30 pm at St. John Vianney Catholic Church, 449 North Water Street, Gallatin, TN and the funeral service will be held on Wednesday, January 2, 2008 at 9:30 a.m., also at the Church. If you would please pass this information along to all those folks you might believe would like to know of this tragic passing.
