There isn't a day that passes that I don't miss you. Mommie loves you so very much. You'll always be in my heart.
You are still here in our heart and on our minds.
We hold you in our thoughts and we can feel your touch.
We feel you and this gives us strength and courage.
The tears we have cried for you could flood the earth
and we know that God is wiping each one away.
For you dear Raleigh, we promise you this.
We will go on with our lives and will always hold you in our hearts.
We love you and we will miss you everyday, until the end of time.
We know that we also need to live because through us, you will live.
You will still laugh and love.
You will still sing and dance.
You will still hug and kiss.
You will forever be in our lives.
You will forever be a son, a father, a brother,
an uncle, a nephew, a cousin, and a friend.
We will miss seeing your shining, handsome face and beautiful simile.
We might cry or smile but at the end of the day,
We are one day closer to you.
I never met you in person, but I feel as though I knew you thru Madelyn. You are so missed, appreciated and so alive in our thoughts. I truly know you are at peace....What a beautiful family you have... Love, Joslynn
I can't believe it's b een over 6 months since you've been gone, Not a day passes that I don't feel my heart has been broken. Mother loves you so very much.
Yes, you are missed every single day my darling brother. If you were here, I know you would be going fishing and you would have come to visit me again; perhaps we would have gone to the beach. I sense your presence with me almost everyday and for this I am so grateful.
With deepest sorrow,my apologies for the late condolences but I did not know. Peace to all

Today is RESURRECTION SUNDAY- the Lord is risen & alive forevermore & those who are in Christ shall never die but have everlasting life!!! Today I finally took down all the beautiful cards people sent me when Raleigh passed away. This week, for the first time, someone asked me how many brothers I have, to which I replied "TWO- one on earth & one in heaven". Though the reality of Raleigh being gone from the earth seems to be settling in, I wondered yesterday how any Christmases will have to pass before I won't feel sad anymore. I have prepared the room where he slept not long ago for another guest & last night I had a good cry while I clung to a neck pillow I had given him.
My dear brother, today is Resurrection Sunday & I give God all the praise for the beautiful gift of being your sister for 57 years. Although I miss you terribly, I rejoice in knowing that one day, I will see that gorgeous smile once again & there will be no more tears nor death- we will be with the Lord for all eternity. I love you more than any language can really express- you are alive & present always in my heart.
Everyday I mourn for you. You're part of my being and I feel I've lost part of my soul. Mother loves you so very much. Rest well my beloved.
I cannot express my sadness enough over Raleigh's passing. I knew Raleigh when we were kids and then briefly had contact as adults. I just want to remember you in my thoughts and pray God is taking care of you.
May God bless the Raleigh Callion family .
Mr. and Mrs. Banks
There are no words that can describe the love and compassion that I have for this very beloved brother. He was my best friend, along with my sister, before I could walk or talk. One of my fondest memories was rolling a ball back & forth on the upstairs' floor of our home. Then, as we grew older, it really got interesting! There are so many things I could share about Raleigh, but the greatest thing he ever shared with me was JESUS!
I will miss my brother, but only for a while, and then we shall meet to never part from one another's company for all eternity in Christ Jesus. I can thank my brother for many things, but the most significant & monumental praise is when he directed me into the Kingdom of the Most High God in Christ Jesus. And for this, I shall forever be eternally grateful. Thank you my Beloved Brother and more important, Thank You my Heavenly Father for having sent Your Son, my Lord & Savior, Christ Jesus - AMEN!
In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Sending prayers of comfort & care to the Callion family. From your extended family, the Ponders.
Dr.Callion was my father's doctor. He and I went to high school together.and it was a pleasure to know a great guy. May God bless him and his family.
John you and your family have my condolences. Raleigh was special to me and I loved him dearly. We had a real admiration society going (so to speak) You above all know this is true. What a pleasure it was to enter into his office, over on Woodland Ave., and hear that wonderful Jazz music coming out over the sound system, and listen to him whistle, boy could he whistle. It was an honor to be a patient of Dr. Callion. God has Raleigh's wife children and grandchildren in his bosom. God will hold them tight and keep them safe until he sees them again. RIP Raleigh. Fondly, Mom Frye.
The Callion family is in my thoughts and prayers. Sending prayers of comfort and care on behalf of the Ponder family. You have welcomed my son into your home as a part of your own. You all are dear to my heart. I am here for you. "grief may endure for the night, bout joy cometh in the morning".

Hugs. I am so thankful for all Raleigh did to help me and the kids - such a kind giving heart...
Suzanne, let not your heart be troubled, but we are told to wait on the comforter for you and the children-many jazz concerts and many laughs,not just my doctor but most of all -true friend.
I will always remember Raleigh's playful spirit from the time of high school days. He was a good man who will be sadly missed. Condolences to the family. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
Dear Suzanne I was shocked as I heard the news you guys love was a witness to me and glorified the Father ! My heart and prayers go out to you and yours .. Billy R. Remember He is able to perfect (bring to completion) the things that concern you He is your father and they concern him also... No one understands or cares as He does ....
Dear Suzanne and family,
I'm praying for God's Peace to guard your hearts and minds during this difficult time.
God bless you all.
