Rest in peace Mrs. Calves. God bless you and the beautiful daughter, Nancy and the family you have brought into this world. You daughter Nancy is an outstanding mirror of you and the values you have instilled in her that is evident in her love and care for others. All that is because of the precious and wonderful mother you were to your children. They will always cherish your memory and influence to the human beings they have become. Although I have never met you but you live in your children.
