Christine and Terry would like to give special appreciation to Calvin for all the care and love that he had given our mother; he has been by her side whenever she needed him and we are very grateful for all the care he has given her. He took very good care of her over these last six years. She thought of him as a son and loved him dearly. I would like to thank my sister’s husband, Augie, who looked after mom when dad passed away.
