To Pauline and family I am sadden to hear of Calvin's death I was just told today. You and Calvin were gracious to let me stay a night at your place in Boston in October 1980. I enjoyed working with Calvin while I was at SWA, he will be greatly missed as a truly talented planner, businessman and gracious person.

My condolences to the Platt family. I have fond memories of Kalvin as a former member of the Floating Homes Association. He had true community spirit, a level head, and a wry smile.
