His smile could like up the darkest hours of the darkest days. We will miss you grandpa! I will strive to be as good a person as you were. I will Charis every memory you have left and i will carry them on my heart forever more.

I''m so sorry for the loss of Grandpa Calvin. He was an amazing man! I''ll never forget the first "Gregg Family Reunion" I went to with Michele. He was so loved by his family and gave so much love back. The Grandkids lined up at the door to talk to him(there were dozens of them). He knew what was going on with everyone''s life and cared so much for them. He always gave great advice with a good dose of humor and listened with empathy.
