  1. Eneth Alan Calhoun says:

    Willard Calhoun was a great man, and a great Grandfather. No he was more than that, he was my father, he looked after me while my mom worked almost everyday trying to give me a good life, he taught me many things about being a man and how the world works, he taught me things like how to play catch, ride a bike, fish, and how to drive a car, I could never be more grateful for these thing nor the memories these bare, it’s hard to think about them because it feels like it was just yesterday, when time was simple, but now we must face the cruel and complex facts of morality and learn to never forget him or his memories because that’s how he will live on in our hearts. I love you papa, rest and peace.
