My heart aches at the sad news of Uncle Calvin passing. I loved my Uncle Calvin from the moment I met him. He had a kind and loving soul and had the sprirt of an angel. I will miss getting his lovely cards, but am glad for the lovely memories I hold in my heart. RIP, Uncle Calvin, and give my Dad a kiss and hug from me.
