Guestbook

I am saddened to learn of the passing of someone I always looked up to and respected. Growing up at Union Baptist Church, Mr. Cain was at each service and always kind when I would see him. He was a special person to my father as well and I know that my dad highly revered him. Mrs. Cain was one of my early Sunday School teachers and I remember Sue very well. Sue may have been a teacher of mine too! My father and I saw Mr. Cain in a restaurant in Laurens within the past year or two. I knew who he was though I had not seen him a number of years. Dad recognized him and they spoke briefly. Dad is unable to remember much anymore. I know he would be saddened yet rejoice in Mr. Cain's passing on to meet our Heavenly Father. Your family will remain in our prayers and we look forward to a day that we will see those sweet smiles again. Sincerely, Kimberley Culbertson Vaughn, on behalf of Marcus G. Culbertson.
