Your classmates and friend from Keith High School still share memories of your visit home during the KHS School Reunion. That was a "GREAT" celebration, little did we know it was our final celebration here on Earth. Just wait, we are going to have celebrate again we we all get Over There. We love you Cyrus! You was a great friend and role model. Who can forget that smile!
Farrior & Williams Family
WOW!!! I am still at a lose for words. I am no longer mourning your passing, but I am mourning your absence. This time of the year is always exciting for us. I still look for your text every Sunday Evening. I cherish our time, and love you infinity.
Rev, I just want to thank you for developing me spiritually and allowing me to grow within Christ by surrendering myself to his WILL. Thank you for the messages on faith and love, cuz that's all I really need to get through this here life. I love you, I'll miss you!
I knew you as daddy. Although you were my spiritual guidance, you were placed in my life as my daddy. This is the most difficult thing to wrap my head around. I constantly question if your absence is even real. I look for you to txt me Good Morning baby, have a good day. Small things I once took for granted, I now cherish more than ever. I smile would always reassure me that everything would be just fine. You never once doubted my capabilities, but instead always cheered me on. God, as much as I want this to be a dream, I know its not. The selfish me wants you to come back, even if its just to walk me down the aisle on my wedding day. But I do know that God has never made a mistake and I can be at peace knowing that you were welcomed with open arms. My only request is that you stand now as a guardian angel. I miss you every second of the day. I feel your presence within me. I love you daddy.
To our niece Valesha & her church family ...
He Knows, He's Been There
by Deloris Barr
If you think that no one understands
The trials you're going through
The awful pain, the heavy burdens
That seem far too much to endure
Just remember, He knows our puny frame
He's aware, He knows your name
He understands, is very much aware
Yes, He knows, He's been there
\He laid aside His mighty power
That's not all, His Glory, too
Even humbled Himself further
He actually died, for me and you
Don't you see, He knows of suffering
He's felt the pain, that you feel within
He understands, He is aware
He knows all about it,
'Cause He's been there
He's been there, yes, He's been there
Jesus knows your situation
Yes He knows, yes, He's been there

I Pray That God Will Give His Family Strength To Get Through These Days Ahead. I Pray That Cyrus Will Eternally Rest In Peace. Sincerely Susie Bennett Steele
To the Flanagan Family, Rhonda and the Precious 5 (daughters), I just want to extend my heartfelt condolences for the loss of a Great Man of God! Reverend Flanagan touched so many lives, and I am proud to say that I am one of them. He was a leader that spoke many anointed and profound words; I remember on February 11, 1997, that he ministered, “If God is Your Partner, Make Your Plans Larger!” I cherished this word and it has been instrumental in my life's goals and accomplishments! Reverend will truly be missed. God Bless!
Rhonda and Five Young Ladies, you are Cyrus Flanagan's legacy. Let his ideas and great faith beat through you. Rhonda, most dignified and treasured friend of Cyrus - stand strong - HE has your back! Delbra Arline Howard and Tia, Vallejo, CA
To my first dad, pastor, mentor, and friend I will miss u dearly. To the family keep your head up and hold on to the gosple plow. Jeanette Young
May God bless your family. This world has lost a great man.
To the Flanagan family; Dr. Rhonda Flanagan and children may the love and peace of God comfort you during this very difficult time of transition. One of our GREAT GENERALS has gone on to be with the Lord. I can see his smiling face, and though his is absent in body he will always be in our hearts, and his teachings will live on through the thousands of lives he touched as he traveled along this way including ours.

I finally did when i joined him and you indeed are a remarkable person and more. You loved and loved and loved. You reply my distress and doubts and worry with assurances. You will forever remain dear in our hearts. It really was an honour to have known you and be loved by you. Rest Ps Flanagan. Rest peacefully daddy.

CONDOLENCES - To Personal and Church Family of Pastor Cyrus Flanagan. Earth has no sorrow that The Lord Jesus can't heal. You are most certainly in our Prayers. R.I.P. Man of God in The Arms of Jesus. SHALOM
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I thank God for Pastor Flanagan short time of being under his leadership. I can hear Pastor Flanagan say to his family and church family saying ...
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above. Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you." It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan. There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do. And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight. God and I are closest to you...in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er. I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb; but together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too... that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain, then you can say to God at night..."My day was not in vain." And now I am contented...that my life has been worthwhile, knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind; I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go... from that body to be free, remember you're not going...you're coming here to me.
Ruth Ann Mahaffey (author)
This is how I see Pastor Flanagan advise us as his family.
Again, I thank God for the time of leadership.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Dr. Flanagan who loved God and was appointed as an apostle in the earth realm will truly be missed. God has greater purpose even when don't understand Him but that is what makes Him God

Rev. Cyrus Flanagan was truly a vessel of God. Rev. Flanagan's teachings and his zeal for God inspired me to change my life. I will be forever grateful for having the opportunity of knowing him as a leader and friend.
"A human life is a story told by God"
Cyrus, God, our Alpha and Omega, has not only told your story, he "penned" your story. My friend, until we meet again..........In loving memory.
"A human life is a story told by God"
Cyrus, God,our Alpha and Omega, has not only told your story, but He has "penned" your story..... In Loving Memory......until we meet again...
The first time I set foot in the Family Worship and Praise Center church on Apalachee Parkway, you called me down to the altar Rev. and spoke a word into my life. You told me all about my life. I started to wonder who had been talking to you about me? Then I realized that GOD was telling you all about me. Rev, you were talking to and listening to GOD about me. I thank you for letting GOD use you to speak into my life and into the lives of so many others. We love you Rev. but GOD loves you best!
The news of Cyrus' passing shocked me, and my heart remains heavy. I'm grateful that God allowed our paths to cross, and I look forward to seeing my friend in Glory! My thoughts and prayers are with the Flanagan Family and Friends.
I will always cherish my rememberance of Rev. Flanagan, he was like a father to me and when in need of a listening ear he was always there without hesitation. I love you but God loves you best.
My sympathy to the Flanagan family on your loss. God is the source of our strength and a stronghold in times of distress. Psalm 18:1-3.
Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
By Christina Rossetti

The ministry of your father brought such blessings to me as he spoke at Broadview many times. Your sister in Christ, Sis. Eugenia Curry
With humility you bore the name of great royalty;
And the burdens of your children you carried gracefully,
And if you were ever in distress from the burden of your calling,
We saw it not, 'cos without counting the cost you kept on giving,
You taught us well; you taught us to love God's children without reserve;
So love for all we will give, 'cos in loving we will always have you near,
Fare thee well in the your abode of eternal praise;
We won't forget you paapa, till we meet again.
Pastor Flanagan, a mighty man of God, will certainly be missed in the earth because of the impact that he made in so many of our lives. Elder Ronald Ellis and I, Janice Clark Ellis were two lives that were transformed while in the Tallahassee prayer group, by the word of God that he taught us with the passion of prayer and fasting!! We pray for comfort to all of his loved ones especially his dear family.
To the Family's no words however kindly meant can soothe your pain away.I hope that each day that passes bring you hope and comfort through memories and heartfelt prayers. Classmate(1974)
Pastor Flanagan, my spiritual "dad" was very instrumental in my life and I will miss him dearly. He will be greatly missed by all who was touched by his ministry and friendship. My prayers are with his daughters, personal and church families. May God continue to comfort and keep each of you.
Rev, we are going to miss you. You are a true man of God full of wisdom, grace, but most importantly love. A true prophet. So blessed to have known and loved you. We love you and miss you so much.
A wonderful man of God who touched many of lives who will truly be missed God Bless rest in peace.
It was such an honor and blessing to have known and worshipped with such a great Man of God. Although He was taken from this world at such a young age, we know that He is at peace with our Lord.
May God Bless the Flanagan family. Truly Pastor Flanagan left an indelible impression on several people. My husband was very close to Pastor Flanagan. Bishop and I send our love and prayers.
Bishop & Mrs. Ronald (Bridget) Kimble
I pretty sure it goes without saying that my family will miss you dearly! From the time that I was a little girl, you have always been a bright spot in my life. My only regret is that I never once told you how much you truly meant to me. I can only hope that you knew my heart from my actions. You were one of the few examples the world had of a true man of God, and I know that you are in Heaven looking down on everyone you love. Thank you for being the man that you were, and I wouldn't change anything about you. I love you with my whole heart and soul. I know you and my granddad are up in Heaven having a good time. Have fun up there for me! See you soon!
A Great Man of God & a light gone out of the world.
Pastor T D Thomas
Sleep on, the Broadview Church family will keep you in our hearts; again, I say "sleep on." Take your rest...

I will never forget you Rev. Flanagan. God Bless you and your beautiful Flanagan Family!
Pastor Flanagan was an incredible man. He imparted wisdom, love and fatherly guidance into my life. He did so without the expectation of anything in return, with only a sincere desire to bless my family. I am forever grateful for the time he chose to share with us.
To Pastor Flanagan's five daughters - please accept our sincere condolences. Thank you for sharing your father and allowing him to love, nurture and father others. Pastor Flanagan spoke of you often and it was always clear how much he loved you and took great pride in being your covering.
2 Timothy 4:7-8 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
HE will always be in my HEART.
My prayers and thoughts are with the family at this time. Cyrus was such a fun person when we were in school together. Could blow that horn..He went on to do some great work. He will be missed.
Keith High School
Rest in peace Rev. I'm really going to miss you telling my testimonies "in your own way" of course ha ha, nevertheless, you got the point across that God is a great God and he can do more than we could ever ask or think. You were a great man of God and I love and miss you dearly.
You were so inspirational to me and my entire family. I love you as a Man of God, as a friend and as a confidant. My heart is overjoyed about our last conversation. RIP my friend
We are not ignorant, for we know that he is just asleep - we will see in the morning - when we shall be caught up!
We love you Pastor. You were a true angel. A true prophet and friend. What a vessel you were... I thank God for allowing me to cross your path and be under your ministry. Rest in peace.
You will be GREATLY MISSED!!!!

You have always been there for Rev. Flanagan. As for you wonderful, beautiful, young women, continue to support one another, be the voice your father was and stay strong. None of us were prepared for this but we know that God makes no mistakes. Dr. Flanagan and the Fab Five Flanagan girls with little Kinsley, May God bless each of you!
I cried when I learned that Pastor Flanagan had gone to heaven; yet I praised God for sending this wonderful Man of God to earth. He was my friend and I will always love him. God bless his family, friends and members of his church. My heart will forever be grateful for having had the opportunity to know him as a friend, and to work with him in ministry.
May the PEACE of GOD be with the family and congregation. I am HONORED to have known such a GREAT MAN. RIP PASTOR.

The Bible says that to be absent from the body means to be present with The Lord , and you know what He said when you got there? Job well done... Thank you God.. and to Flanagan Family Thank You for sharing God's gift with us
To the Flanagan Family: Our hearts are broken and we mourn along with you. Pastor Flanagan was a faithful servant of God who will be dearly missed. Rest In Peace my brother!- The Prince Family, BMBC - Broadview, IL
Praying for us all and especially the Flanagan family and FWPC. He is still such a blessing to everyone who knew him. I mentioned him on Saturday, September 14th, as I spoke at the UF/Gainesville Prayer Group 38th Anniversary Banquet as one of the connections God had given us. I also have some great memories of learning how to cook beef stroganoff and some other delicious dinners from him. Most of all I will remember him as a wonderful preacher, teacher and man of God. Another soldier gone home!
Rev. Flanagan my heart mourns the lost of a great pastor, mentor and friend in Christ. You have been an intercessor for me and my family through many hardships and trails, just a wonderful spiritual covering for us. You taught me so much about servanthood in the example of your life. I'll forever be grateful for your service in the Lord. We will miss you more than words could ever express. To the family of our friend our family will continue to cover you in prayer. We love you.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
To the family in the time of sorrow may God give you peace,and bless all of you
I am so glad I had a chance to see Rev. Flanagan last year for Homecoming. He has been a significant part of my life since 1988. I want to thank his girls for sharing him with me. I pray for comfort to the family during this time.
This is the hardest thing for me to do and that is to accept that you are gone. Who would have thought such a world changer as you would leave us this soon. You where the one who pushed me behond my own limitations and I will always love you for that. There are so many names I can give you for what you represented in not only me but my families life and I thank you that for that. Flanagan family I see you as my family and just know that I am praying your strength in God to keep moving as Rev has and would instruct you to do.
Love you guys
Please accept our heartfelt sympathies...Our thoughts and prayers are with your family
Maurine Branch Knight and Family
Pastor Flanagan, you taught me so much over the years and I appreciate every word of encouragement. Though I'm sad to see you gone, I'm happy that you are at peace with our Father. We now have our own personal angel watching over us and keeping us safe. I love you Pastor. Thank you for everything.
Pastor Flanagan was legendary as the leader of the Tallahssee Prayer Group. They were known for their commitment to prayer and the word of God! What a legacy!
Words can't really express the THANKS & GRATITUDE I have for you being an awesome
Shepherd and Caregiver of our daughters Christic & Candace and a father figure for my grandson Devone' every summer while visiting his aunts. My Aunt Marie & I always enjoyed attending the services which were always Anointed. To the family Thank you for sharing him with us. Whenever I see a group of Praisers dancing and worshiping I always compare them FW&PC. None can touch them.
May God Bless and Comfort all of you at this time of grief.
PRAYING FOR YOU ALWAYS&REMEMBERING
Pastor Flanagan, Receiving the news first Broke Us The Dixon' Family down. But knowing The Word Your Preached, gave us strength to Praise The Lord for His Calling His Son Home to Glory. Because of you we now Dance and Shout of Joy knowing that Your Passing is a Home Going Celebration. We will forever Keep you in Our Hearts and Prayers.
Mila Dixon and Sons (Troy, Elgin, and 3D)
The fight is over for a servant whose job is well done. Thank you Pastor Flanagan. May God comfort the Flanagan family. Love from BMBC.
Thank you Pastor Flanagan for impacting my life the way you did! I will forever be grateful for you, and I'll miss you dearly; but I know you are where you should be - with the Lord!
Rev. Cyrus Flanagan we will miss you brotherman, a great baritone and bass singer with the Westcoast Gospel Chorus, a great leader of the Tallahassee Prayer Group and my Friend!!!!! Love you Brother Man!!!!!
Bye and bye when the morning come, all the Saints will gather at home. We will understand it better bye and bye. Our God makes no mistakes. Praying for your strength to face the coming days, nights, weeks, months and years.
In the 2 and a half years that I have attended your church, you taught me the true meaning of faith. How to "Go" on the direction of God and trust and believe in his plan. You taught me not to be suprised at the blessings and miracles but to expect them. Thank you so much Rev, my life has been changed by the ministry you led. You brought me in as a man that needed direction, and built my faith stronger than it has ever been before. Thanks Rev, will always love you. And I know, in heaven, you are still calling out my name and praying for me. "Joshu Way!!!" lol
Rev. Cyrus - our John the Baptist - I will never forget that first bible study playing sounds like...Panama City, January 1979. Your knowledge of the scriptures has inspired me over these many years. Your prophetic preaching has been a tremendous inspiration. Thanks friend. See ya on the other side!
I am so blessed to have been under the leadership and annointing of Pastor Flanagan. Thank you for accepting me as your daughter and teaching me to live a life lead by God. I will always remember your compassion for me and others around the world. I pray that your family will find comfort in knowing that you are home in heaven. Thanks for all your love!
Thank God for the opportunity to hear you preach His Word and speak life. You have blessed many with the love of God. Mrs. Shea
I extend my deepest thoughts and prayers to the Flanagan Family, and to FWPC. I met Pastor C.F. in Illinois in 2002. We began a friendship, and mentor-menteeship that has greatly blessed and enriched my life. He loved God, his wife, his daughters, and he had an unyielding desire to reach the lost for Christ, and to encourage believers to live lives worthy of their calling. We talked, laughed, prayed for one another, and he always challenged me to give God my very best. Even across the miles, Pastor C.F. was my mentor-brother-friend, all in one. We last touched basis during the summer, and he was his usual vibrant and encouraging self. I thank God for allowing our paths to cross, and for giving me such a great friend. Pastor C.F. was a gift from God, and a blessing to mankind. I'll greatly miss my friend, yet I know we'll meet again in Heaven. And, I'll hold firmly to all that he taught me. Until we meet again C.F...
In Christ,the end is only the beginning.God bless and keep You'll
We will miss you awesome man of God. You are a true angel. We love you!
Thank you Pastor. You saved my life and taught me how faith works through your selfless walk. Sure gonna miss you
To the Flanagan Family my prayers are with you all, I pray that you find peace, with the lost of your Love one. Rev. Flanagan was a wonderful man, Faithful is the one word that come to my mind.
I thank God that I had the chance to becomes friends with such great people as the Flanagans. There aren't words to express how I feel but I believe that God will give all of us the strength we need to get through this.
We will never forget the anointing of God that was on his life. His gifts and talents took him where his character kept him. We love Cyrus Flanagan. Our prayers are with the Flanagan family.
Michael & Margaret Clark and family
All I can say is I Love You
Pastor Flanagan has fulfilled his purpose. "You have been faithful on a few things, come on up higher and I'll make you ruler of many." Truly his wisdom, his love, his kindness and his spiritual leadership will be missed. We love you but God had need of you. May God Bless and comfort the family during this time of loss. May He strengthen and lead Family Praise and Worship to carry on his legacy. Rev. Sheila Crawford
We will never forget your love, compassion, teaching and inspiration. You truly did "bring them in, build them up, and then sent them out". You were one of the best pastor I ever had. You will be missed. Blessings to the Flanagan family and FWPC Family.
I am sorry for the lost of a great man of God. My thoughts and prays are with you all.
FWPC was the first church I ever visited since I have been in Tallahassee for college since 2009. I'm still in disbelief, because I seen him on Thursday in the grocery store. From what I've seen, Pastor Flanagan is a loving man of god. I know for a fact he loves his young people. I pray that god blesses his family and his church.
My brother in Christ has fought a good fight, has kept the faith and has finished his course. Now it's time for his reward. Peace and comfort be with the Flanagan family always. Cyrus will be missed!!
Send prayers to Pastors family I feel your pain and your lost. Pastor changed my thinking when it came to pastors he was and always to me be the greatest
You taught me how to pray and equipped me with the tools I need to be the Mother, Teacher, and Soldier that I am today. Thank you for all you've done for me and my children.
Rev, you will truly be missed but never forgotten. Thank you for everything you taught us!
Pastor Flanagan, I will miss you tremendously, I basically knew you my whole life. You were a wonderful man ,putting others before yourself . I know you're looking down on your people smiling. I am the woman I am today because of you and I will forever be grateful that God put you in my life. Now you can rest in peace and be with Lord . I love you forever and I can't wait till I see you again.
May the Lord contine to cover and keep the Flanagan Family......Be Blessed
I love you and will always remember what you did for me and my family!! I know you are at peace and God is happy to have you by his side!!
I am so happy that I was able to meet this great man of God, it was at our yearly Revival at Trinity Christian Center here in Sarasota, Fl. I instantly fell in Love, with his humor, preaching style, message " ONE WORD" and his Love for our Pastor; his brother & friend..If that wasn't enough, I was BLESSED to be the very first person that night that he came over and spoke a word from GOD to. He was sooo on point with me, all I could do was scream and cry...The things he said to me came to pass and are still coming to pass. I thanked him that night and I'm thanking him again NOW!! Thank You Reverend Cyrus Flanagan, I know the Angels were happy to see your name on the Roll Call. Heaven is rejoicing!
I will forever think of this great man and his BEAUTIFUL family & congregation.. May God Strengthen and Bless you all daily!
With Love,.Robin Thomas-Lewis

Morales St. Hilaire, Pastor
You were my first teacher in the Lord. I learned how to grow in grace. We traveled together and we We helped each other. And over time we laughed together. We loved each other and we would cry with each other. When we were away from each other, we did not forget each other. Our bond stayed intact. God was good to all of us, on the day he introduced us to Rev. Cyrus Flanagan. Now you rest with Him. You will be missed. My prayers, in this difficult time, are for your family.
To the family of Pastor Flanagan, you all are in my prayers. Pastor Flanagan has been such an awesome spiritual guide to all that he has come in contact with and because of it we are better men and women. May his words of encouragement, love, and wisdom live on in the heart each and every one of us.
Thank you for being a part of my life. I will always remember you. God bless and comfort your family.

Rev you were my spiritual father and I had so much respect for you and every word that came out of your mouth from the Lord. I met an awesome man all over a cup of your infamous lemonade at a single's ministry event. I enjoyed singing before you came up to preach and keeping the babies out of church while you preached. The homeless shelter as well as all of us are sure going to miss your jambalaya! I really want God to loan you back to us, but if he doesn't I thank him for allowing me to serve under your great leadership! I MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH! Joshua misses you as well and enjoyed growing up at FWPC!
Rev I thank God for allowing you to be apart of life. You was a true man of God, an awesome pastor, mentor, spiritual father to me and many more. I will miss you dearly. I luv you R.I.P. our Angel.
Lord, another angel called Home. Daddy I don't know how to feel about losing the man u chose to teach me to seek you out. May he be celebrated in Paradise! Rev, until we meet again... thank you for drawing me in, building me up, and sending me out on a Christ Cornerstoned foundation!!! ?????
Thank you "Preacher" for your love and great teachings.

Rev. Flanagan impacted my life by validating who's I AM and my purpose on this earth just 15 years ago. I am grateful our lives crossed paths. May God give comfort to all those who lives he touched, especially his daughters.
Prayers to the family. Pastor is truly missed. He was a true Man of God who walked upright in the Word. We love and adore him.
Pastor Flanagan has touched the lives of so many. We pray your hearts are filled with memories of his smile, his message, and joyful times together. Our hearts and prayers are with you. Ann, Duane, Terrell, and Duane II.
This is a tremendously difficult loss. Rev. was such a wonderful person with a kind heart and humble nature. He is a good man who personifies being a servant-leader. I admired his character even in his silence. He had the best laugh and rejuvenating smile. I grew in Christ because of his clear and practical teaching. He was the best writer I have ever known. I cannot believe he is gone, but I thank God for bringing me into his care in 1997. His was an unexpected but adored and trusted friendship. Thank you Rev. for your guidance, trust, wisdom, direction, counsel, love and friendship. I am on course in my purpose and such a better servant because of you. I miss you terribly, but thank God for the place you hold in my heart. My heartfelt sympathy to the girls and the family. I cannot imagine how difficult this is for you. Thanks for sharing your dad. Stay strong, like him. I love you all.
