Officer Cantrell, thank you for all of your efforts, especially your attempt to return to duty. Many would have walked away, and I do NOT judge that, who could blame anyone for just saying, "ENOUGH". But you went back and I admire that to no end. It's sad and heartbreaking that you didn't make it past your first day back, but deep down, somewhere, your deep subconscious said, "ENOUGH". You almost beat it.

God Bless you, Brother and may you eternally Rest in Peace.

Officer Cantrell,
On today, the 41st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

A tragic loss on so many levels. Officer Cantrell, you went above and beyond and the simple fact that you made it back, even for such a brief time, proved you were tough and not about to let evil win. You are now remembered here, at this magnificent website, dedicated to all who GAVE ALL for the defense of others.

God Bless and may your eternal rest remain peaceful, Brother.
