    To The Edmonds Family, I am saddened to hear of the passing of Calvin. I am remembering our talks and laughs from the time he was a student at Brunswick and also during business with the family at Edmonds Printing. Calvin and his entire family were such a wonderful family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
    May God bless each of you.
