My Condolences to the family of Calvin. Children, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles, cousin and friends just pray and God will let you know that it is going to be alright. God was ready for his son to come home and from what I understand Calvin was ready to go and be with is Mom. He is in a better place now.

Praying for all of you,

When I heard about the passing of Calvin I was deeply saddened, but now after seeing his actual obituary, it is so so heart breaking. As far back as I can remember Calvin, he always had that smile on his face and it was a very warm smile. Yes, he always tried cracking jokes with people. He will truly be missed and family I am sending my love and condolences and especially to my niece Telicia... This is so heartbreaking, BUT... in the midst of all of this God will be your strength today tomorrow and in days to come. Blessings and Love to you all.
