Tammy, I've never seen you as happy as when you and Calvin were about to be married. You will miss him; your house will be empty and quiet. Grieve as long and as much as you need to. Let no one tell you how long it will last. It will last as long as it takes, and it will take as long as it takes. May friends give you comfort; may God give you peace. There's that word: peace! Love to you always, Louise

Calvin was one of the first officers I remembered when I started. He was one of the guys who told you how it was. Because of him and those like him surviving the streets was easier. You will be missed.

My heart and prayers go out to anyone who served my birth city of Fort Worth. I met him when I moved back to town in the early 70's. He was a fine officer.

Sorry for your loss, haven't seen Calvin in over 50 years, but from reading other posts, I'm glad to see he never lost his "orneriness".He was our "leader" for a while,til he went to Nam, and we sort of lost touch. I agree, he was a special person & I know he will be missed by everyone he met in his life
