My words feel so hollow, even as I write. My head is numb at the suddenness of your loss . Calvin is such a cherished soul and so deeply loved. He has brought kindness, sensitivity and thoughtfulness to friends and family. My heart is swept away in the depth of your grief. I stand, ankle deep, in the river which must threaten to pull you away from the banks at times. My mouth is empty and dry- there are no words to convey my care, my love and my sympathy. There is no joy. Just company. My eyes are tearing up, alongside you. My throat is full. But I stand here, ankle deep, and won't move until you need me to. In life-long love, dear friends. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
