As far back as I can remember Cal was up front leading the music and the choir every Sunday morning. I always wanted to be in the choir. When I was old enough I ask if I could join the choir. Cal allowed me to join. I remember my first Sunday standing there singing so proudly. I do remember hearing someone singing off key. Well it was me !!! That was my first and last time singing in the choir. Cal knew I couldn’t sing, but he allowed me the opportunity to try. He was a awesome Christian role model growing up. I have so memories of this wonderful, kind, man of God. It’s like the song: What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see. Cal got his day. I will miss him
