My dear mother I will always be in your heart .. listen to the beat that hurts in your heart for me with a smile on your face and love in your heart missing me remember I am the Beat that beats so hard and we will never part .. Mom I earn my wings to fly above high into the Sky so look up when you want to see me remember you didn't loose a Son you gain An Angel with wings...But, I miss you Son I miss you to Mom we will see each other again when that time comes.Now put you hand over your heart when you missing me I am that Beat that still beats in your heart ... Sign: Wing in heaven and A Mother heart...

The Day you left me I felt it from a far I knew I was loosing My Son one part of my heart. I cry I scream I call your name but you never answers it was nothing but pain .My Heart break without ..I ask; Why lord!! I shouted why have you forsaking me .. Why My Son My 1st Born ? Then God whisper to Me and said Dry you tears and have faith in me The son you called your is is our and he's with Me ...I said to you that I will never leave you nor will I FORSAKE you ..It's was in my will that he with Me! So don't worry My dear Dry your tears because when you least expect he will appear.Not in his own flesh but in spirit. He will kiss you with a small touch Than you will hear Mom I love SO MUCH !! I'm sorry I had to go I don't want you to hurt for me no more I'm home at last. So, don't cry no more Dry your tear and never fear I will never leave I will always be near ..

Calvin and I worked together for nearly 7 years, he was one of the best employees and friends I have ever had. He was the most abitious person I have ever met. I knew I could always count on him, and am greatful for meeting Calvin. It was amazing to watch him grow into a leader. He truly cared about people and was passionate and emotionally invested in everything he did. We shared some great times together, he loved being a Dad, loved talking sports (go longhorns!) I think about him each day. I will miss his sense of humor. His legacy will live on.

There aren't words to describe what a special person Calvin was. The hardest part about writing this is knowing that if it were about anyone else, I would be asking Calvin what to say.

He was always the more creative and emotional of us two. Where my logic failed me, Calvin's love often filled in the blanks.

I know many others feel the same way, and I am sorry for everyone's loss, especially that of his family. I wish he were here to tell me how to say that better.

No matter the circumstance, how tragic the situation, or how sudden it happened, God had and still has a plan. Calvin will truly be missed, but we must remember that he left a legacy, Evan and Jaila. We need to love, support, and uplift them in prayer. To his wife, Damitta, stay strong and know that God will never put more on you than you can bear. He knew you could and can handle this. You are surrounded by people who sincerely love and will never leave you during this difficult time. Many of us never know what it feels like to lose a spouse, but trust and believe that God will give us the power to comfort you and give you the strength to continue on. Family and friends, continue in love because we all have a purpose in our lives. Tomorrow is not promised and this sudden passing is a true testament to that. It's okay to mourn, but remember that memories of Calvin have not left us...and neither has God.
