Although young in age, Kalvin was a wonderful son who lived his life to the fullest, surrounded by loving family and friends. Kalvin loved us all in return and wants us to remember how he lived.
Kalvin endured trying physical hardships with remarkable courage and great character, never complaining and always optimistic about the future. His heart warming smile and constant politeness to others in the face of daunting challenges was an unforgettable inspiration to all.
Through the example he set, Kalvin left us with an important lesson on life that we each have a choice about how we live our lives. With each day of his life, Kalvin showed us that we can choose to live our lives with love and compassion for others and with bountiful hope. And it is with this choice that we can truly give our lives great meaning and feel the awesome grace of God's embrace.
To those I love and those who love me..." When I am gone, release me, let me go, I have so many things to see and do, you mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love. You can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown. But now it's time I traveled alone. So grieve a while for me, if you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust. It is only for a while that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart. I won't be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near. And if you listen with your heart, you will hear all of my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home."

Although I came to heaven, I love you all and don't want you to be sad, but to be happy and remember me:
Remember me for my laughs and not for my tears... Remember me for my braveness, not for my weakness... Remember me for my accomplishments, my love and how well I lived my life.
Thank you dad, mom, Fergie, family and friends for seventeen great years with you.
I will be waiting in heaven smiling down on you.
