Janie and Mark,
We are so thankful that God placed "Cal" in our lives. She shared herself in a way that made the world a brighter, happier, kinder, and generous place.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

I have never and may never meet again a prayer warrior quite like Ms. Cal. She prayed for me and my family so many times and always asked about my family. She will be missed so much by her church family but I rejoice for her that she is with her Savior in Glory. No doubt that the Lord said well done, my good and faithful servant. We will all miss you, Ms. Cal. Until we see you again...
All my prayers for her family.
