    Could you just imagine sitting in your home and all of a sudden a car comes thru it. Sympathy goes out to his family and friends.

    My sympathy goes out to the family and my prayers are with them. While we were standing out there watching the RMFD put out the fire my husband looked up at the sky and pointed a shooting star out to me. He whispered, that star could be him. I recently lost a family member and know that pain all to well. Again, my prayers are with the family.

    Had an opportunity to work with Calvin about ten years ago while on assignment...was a nice hardworking guy. Sad situtation and sympathies are extended to his family.

    God bless...
