Family of Mr. Cran,

Mr. Cran was my principal for a year in Warroad; he was always fair to me, and I truly appreciated that as a student. I have been a teacher for over thirty years, which makes me grateful for administrators like Mr. Cran. I'm very sorry for your loss and hope that your are all filled with wonderful memories of him.

I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of Charlie Cran. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father, Jehovah, return your dear one to you. May the Lord, Jesus Christ himself and God our Father who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope through undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm. (2Thessalonians 2:16,17)

Dear Karen and family,
Our deepest condolences on the passing of Charlie. He lived an amazing life and was a memorable personality. May the good Lord bring you comfort and strength and peace and understanding now and in the days to come. Alzheimer's is a cruel horrid disease that robs the patient and the family of so much. Karen you gave so much in loving care for Charlie. You were an example of God's love for all of us to follow. Take care. Peace be with you. The Thiele Family

Our sympathies on the passing of “Mr. Cran”…I was blessed to have had him as a Principal. Though his time spent in Gibbon was not long, he left an everlasting impression and his kindness was deeply felt.

So sorry to hear of Jo's passing. Know that my heart and prayers are with you at this very hard time. I'm glad you got to spend time with him before his passing, and that you all shared stories and pictures. That helped me know him better, especially the stories of the "early days" before I joined the family. I know it will be hard, but I also know your family is one that will pull together to help each other through it. ((((HUGS)))) and love to all of you! Julie
