They are working extremely hard toward finding a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. The family would like to especially thank the staff at Henry Ford Hospital in Jackson. They were nothing but helpful, kind, caring, and accommodating to all family members, some who stayed around the clock once it was known that time was short. Calvin went into Gods open arms while surrounded by loving family. He was the rock of his family and has touched so many lives. Never to be forgotten, always to be loved.
