    BUBBA, you were the brother everyone should have. Always loving, smiling, grateful and humble. We will miss you so much but I know mama and daddy are giving you hugs and kisses and rejoicing in heaven. My heart is broken but I know you are resting on that mountain smiling at the wildlife. Jo , Tina, Bubba and Tim you are a blessing to our family.

    Sorry for your families loss. I have known Calvin for a long time. My husband use to shoot archery together. He has also been attending our Church New Bethel Methodist Church on Pond Creek. He was a good man and will be missed. God bless and I am praying for the family. Please let me know if I can do anything to help.

    Today was one of the hardest days of my life. I had to say goodbye to the greatest man I have ever known. The best dad anyone could ever ask for! I miss you so much already. I want to thank my whole family and friends for all the support that we have received. Unfortunately I’ve been to a lot of funerals over the years but have never seen as many people before at a funeral. That’s a testament to what kind of person dad was. Love you pops! Talk to you soon

    Jo, What a fantastic video. No words can express my sorrow for you. What a great man he was. I never see a turkey that I do not think of Calvin and I always yell out “Turkey”. You are in my prayers today and always. I do love you Jo.
