My Dad outwardly has a stocky build with large square hands and a handsome face. He has kind penetrating brown eyes that can see to the very core of your existence. I didn’t always think his eyes were all that kind; growing up all he had to do is look at me and I knew without him ever uttering a word, I was in deed in trouble. O.K. I got it dad, no need to look further…

Calvin is a self made man. From a humble childhood, (some would refer to it as dirt poor), he became a successful businessman out of shear will, hard work, and a passion for a trade he loves.

Over the past 12 years I have watched my father battle non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When this all began we were told 5 years – that’s the maximum life expectancy. Chemotherapy, radiation, experimental drugs, you name it, Cal has lived through it - and not only lived through it - never uttered a word of complaint. To me, my dad is larger than life and someone I connect with on a non-verbal spiritual and soul level. His resilience has amazed me along with several doctors.

When I look into my Dads eyes now I see a brilliant spirit, with unquestioning faith, who has taught me forgiveness, gratitude, unconditional love, and grace. What more could a girl want…

I am truly BLESSED!
