I enjoyed every minute I was able to spend with him listening to his stories and hearing about your adventures together with the ‘girls’. He was a good man! I miss him very much and I know he appreciated all the great care you gave him. He loved you so very much! Love you Linda . Jennifer

  4. Linda my prayers are with you. Calvin was such a loving person. He never met a stranger. I will always remember our meals at 980 that he prepared for us. The thing that I remember most about Calvin was his love for you. He always brought you a Birthday cake to work so you could share with everyone. What can I say he was a special man.
