I want you all to know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Mr. Callis was always such a sweetie when I would come to visit. Even though it was long ago, it seems like yesterday when I would climb all over his boat in the yard! Cherish your wonderful and precious memories each day. Know that you are loved!
