    With a sad heart I send thoughts and prayers to the family of Calvin.

    I have missed and will miss his truck riding past with always a wave and a smile in my direction.

    Calvin had that quiet and friendly demeanor as he would fix any issues in my apartment. I remember a particularly difficult plumbing issue in one of the bathroom tubs couple years ago. It was quite a challenge and took some muscle work, but he did it all with a smile. He was such a pleasant man.

    He will be sorely missed by the residents and the folks he worked with here at Haygood Halls. Calvin was truly a treasure.

    With all respect.

    Calvin, my friend, I will surely miss you. You always had a smile and was fearless. My memories from eight years until now are great, funny, and some not so funny. You knew I was praying for you from the first time last year when you told me of your sickness. You were a fighter. Knowing you has made me a better person. I know that you are in heaven now and out of pain. Keep on smiling my friend!
