Our sympathies to your family. We will remember you always for your quick smile, and even quicker wit. Here's to you, shank man...Now that the old rodeo pains are gone, you can hold that rope tight for as long as you want. But, it's okay to let go and rest in peace.

Cal, I loved chatting with you over coffee, hard to believe that you're gone. Those angels up there must have needed some wrangling for God to call you home. Round ' em up sweetheart! Will miss. the jokes and laughter.

To Calvin's Family: I am so sorry for your loss. As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the following Bible verse, John 11: 11 where Jesus said: “... Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.” Please also find comfort in knowing that our Almighty Heavenly Father holds out the hope of the resurrection and the ability to see our loved ones again.
