A Note from John Kendrick

Friends, I want to personally thank each of you who took the time during my mother’s passing to visit the funeral home, send flowers, gifts, food, notes, etc.  Your kind words and affection toward my family was and is greatly appreciated.  Working for Clarksville Academy has made me part of such a loving family and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the love you have shown me.  Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– John Kendrick & The Kendrick Family
