Sue, Walt, Donna, Justin, and Kevin, Even though we are not with you today, our thoughts and prayers are with you, as you pay tribute to Calvin, a man who truly "lived" his Christian life. With his quick smile and friendly manner, Calvin reflected the Fruits of the Spirit with his kindness, his gentleness, his compassion, and his humility. He was a devoted husband, a caring father, and a loving grandfather and great-grandfather. Our heartfelt sympathy is with you. We love you. Love, Merle and Lawson
