Calvin, as most of us knew him, was full of life and very close to his family. He will be truly missed, not sometimes, but all times and everyday. He was loving, kind, and willing to help anyone. The conversations he had, as well as the way he laughed, stood, sat, and hugged will all be memories we will hold forever in our hearts.
