    God is great. He is with Great Uncle Calvin and our family during this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. I recall what a great person and role model Calvin was when I was at Spring Mill State Park with our family both long ago and again last year. Love, Will, Jen, and Ella Maxwell

    Mary, Cheryl, Kevin, Beth, Many, many wonderful memories of your family and our times at church. How privileged to have grown up knowing you Mary, and Calvin. And Cheryl, Kevin, and Beth, being with you as you grew up at Bryantsville. How fortunate I was. I also worked with Calvin down at the gypsum plant some summers. Good times. All of you and the Bryantsville family will always be in our prayers. Tom and Suzy Chapman

    He loved sports especially the St. Louis Cardinals. He would play sports with his son and me even after a hard day's work. My deepest condolences to Mary, Kevin and Beth and his remaining family. May God bless.

    We shared college days with Mary. Met Bro. Calvin after moving to Dugger, Indiana some fifty years ago. We shared a love for the "Corn Project" which fed many people world-wide. We visited during Family Week at Woodland Bible Camp and at Fifth Sunday Sings, some of them at Bryantsville Church of Christ. For brother Calvin, the best is yet to come. He is resting from his labors. Only God knows his rewards in that day, (I Corinthians 3:10-15). His being called home is cause for rejoicing and longing for the time when our Lord calls us ( Psalm 139::16). Praise to our God.

    Calvin was a wonderful example of being a Christian. Once upon a troubled time in my families walk with the Lord Calvin, and the whole congregation at Bryantsville welcomed us with open arms. Calvin was faithful in his walk with the Lord, and will receive a just reward one day. God bless his family, and loved ones.

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Calvin, he was a dear friend of my Step-father Bill Hopkins. They did so many things together over the years and Bill enjoyed their friendship.
