Trina, over the years we have become closer and closer and I have grown to have that sister love for you. Many of our conversations were about Paris and Caleb and the funny stories we shared. It was through you I felt like I knew Caleb more than I did, and he will truly be missed. You have always been there for me in times of need and prayer, and now it's time to return the favor. I will continue to keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I love you sis!!!

To All Who Knew Caleb,
I am so sorry that Caleb is no longer with us. I am so thankful, so grateful to have had him in my life!
He was a delight and truly funny. I could not say no to him. I think it was those chubby cheeks that I just adored, that made me want to give in to him. He was always respectful and nice to me, his Auntie Net and so lovable too. I just love that "Cadapooh" And I'm gonna miss him. He was a blessing. And now he is resting in peace. com.

May our great Lord father God continue to bless you and keep you near and dear to the cross.

My dear Crayton's, I can't express my condolences enough for the loss of our little buddy, Caleb. Watching him grow from a little boy to a wonderful, polite young man was a pleasure! Taking him to and from school, watching him and Alex play basketball together in the front of the house, always getting a smile and a wave and a "hi, Miss Kerry" are memories I will always remember and cherish. Yes, he had nicknames for us. Miss Kerry, Mr John, Alex was sticky legs and he would say to Zoe and Amelia," hey neighbourrrrrrr" . I am praying for you daily, Charles, Trina and little Charles. We will always be here for you if you ever anything. We love you!

Caleb and I met in high school. He came up to my twin and I one day and that’s how our friendship started. I don’t remember the exact conversation we had but after that we always talked during lunch or whenever he came into my class before it started. He always had a smile on his face. I enjoyed all the nicknames he had for everyone. It made the bond stronger. You will be greatly missed, Caleb.

Caleb was a student of mine multiple times, in 6th grade and twice as a junior. I remember Caleb as a little 6th grader coming into the middle school. Caleb's humor was one of a kind and I always knew he'd have something witty to say and make me laugh. When I moved to the high school last year, I was thrilled to find out I had Caleb not only for US history but also for psychology. Caleb and I would talk about his amazing outfit color coordination he was always able to accomplish between his shoes and his sweatshirts! Every day he'd come in and we'd discuss how it all went together. Caleb is one of the only students I've ever had that never wasted a moment in class. He was always getting his work done first, even as a 6th grader. He's say " What now Mrs. Rinas, I'm done." And you know as a teacher you're thinking they went too fast, missed details or didn't put in full effort...but I'd walk over to Caleb and his work was always outstanding. Caleb always brought joy into the classroom and it was an absolute pleasure to know him and have him as a dear student.
