    To Polly and all of Calvin’s family,
    I’m so sorry for loss. Many thanks to Calvin and Polly for taking my mom and many others on the “Sunday out to lunch excursions” in your van it brought much happiness to her. I guess heaven was looking for a driver. May you be filled with peace and love and wonderful memories. He was a kind and fun man who will be missed by many but has been reunited with many.
    In Peace,
    Trish Norton (daughter of Mary Norton)
