    Jeff and Jason, we are so sorry to hear about Callie, I always called her Kelly that’s what I heard when I met her when you moved in across the street from us. I was always fond of Callie, she was a very sweet and nice person . I loved talking to her. We always had something to talk about . We and I’m sure Steve told her a few times how Jeff was a terror, him and Jim Smith and then comes sweet Jason, He worked so hard on helping us on our pool and never was in it to play. He never gave us a problem. I’ll bet my son Steve could tell stories on all the Tolson boys but that’s another day . LOL
    We are so sorry we can’t be there for her showing, but we have an all dayer on Wed. for Mike . But my thoughts and prayers are with you two. and all the Wives and Grandkids . Love to all.
