Calvin was the consummate gentleman. Although Cal was several years older than me, I do have fond memories of him. We attended church together at Plymouth Church of the Nazarene in Plymouth, Michigan.

I had always want to learn to water ski and one day Cal asked me if I would like to give it a try. A few tries at getting up and Cal had me skiing like a pro, well... almost =)

I'll never forget the day we heard the announcement in church that we had lost Cal. I was a sad, sad day.

I wish I had more to say about Cal, but at least this small memorial got his name on The Virtual Wall. These men and women who gave their all so that we might have the freedom we have today should always be honored and never be forgotten.

God bless you, Calvin Carl Morgan!

From a friend,
