Dear Calvin,

It doesn't seem like its been seven years since we were your "corner house" friend and neighbor...we spent many years sharing backyard talks, tomatoes and your delicious pound cake! Sometimes neighbors become close as family as we share in everyday life happenings and we learn the true essence of that person...Calvin, you are a truely good person and touched our lives...

Our deepest sympathy to Carolyn and all family...

As Always, Rich
