Uncle Calvin was a great man I well never forget all he did for me and my daddy I always said I hope to be just half the man as he was
Uncle Calving was wonderful to me when I was a little girl growing up down there! He was a smart and loving man. He helped us when we needed it. I will never forget Uncle Calvin.
Our prayers and thoughts are with all of the family during this sad time.James David and Jean Isbell
