To all of you: Just learning of the loss of Calvin. I'm so sorry to hear of your great loss. Calvin was my first cousin. I'm the youngest child of uncle Jason's sister, Hazel. I guess I haven't seen Calvin since Uncle Jason's passing. I had heard about a spring reunion and was so looking forward to seeing everyone. Lord willing, maybe we can still have a reunion.
May the Lord strengthen and heal you all during your times of grief.
Sincerely, Georgia
