We lost Calvin two years ago today. We're remembering those of you who reached out the first year, came to be with us on this day last year, and grateful for all of the support we received from all of you. If you knew him, please don't forget him. There's truly no one else like Calvin. He was larger than life. I don't want him to be forgotten. If you didn't know him and just know him as a kid who is now gone, I want you to know that he was not just any kid. I'm not saying that just because I'm his mom, but because he was awe-inspiring to talk to, to laugh with, to hear playing music, to hug, and to love. His empathy for others, and sense of humor, was off the charts, and knowing him made you a better person. He was wise beyond his years, and mind-blowingly beautiful inside and out from birth. We'll never really know why he lost his joy, but before he did, he was the embodiment of joy, light, intelligence, and love. We carry him with us all day every day and will forever, but please remember our boy with us today--the day he decided to leave this world. to edit.
