Not sure what to say?

My most deeply felt condolences to the family, especially Rick, Bill and Mary who were my friends when we lived in Salem, Oregon. Mary and Cal met on the ski bus I organized as professional ski instructor to the Mt. Hood Meadows and we had many happy days skiing together. At that time, my husband was still alive and he and Dr. Collins became not only skiing but also golfing friends. As we took over the Mt. Rose Ski area at Lake Tahoe, leaving Salem in 1973, we remained in touch with Cal...

You will be greatly missed and never forgotten. I love you.

It was a pleasure to know Cal -- a real gentleman and outstanding surgeon.

I will cherish my memories. Rest well, UJ. I love you.

For all special occasions, a limerick he would write.
And we would all laugh with all our might.
Proceeding to share stories, and to eat
Making plans for the next time we get to meet
We will miss you dear Calvin, good night, good night
