The 5th Belongs to Calvin: Calvin’s namesake

A couple years ago, I posted about Calvin’s drawings in the clouds, and including the following photo of a patch Calvin’s godfather, Miquan, had made for his motorcycle jacket. The dragon represents Miquan and the phoenix represents Calvin.

Last night I received the most amazing text message from Miquan. He told us that he was going to have a boy and that he would be naming his son Calvin Lorenzo. My breath caught in my throat as the tears started to blur my vision. What an amazing feeling to find out that Calvin’s god-brother will share his name, to find out on August 4th (Calvin’s due date), and to share this with you today. What an honor and amazing reminder of how much Calvin matters to our family and friends.

Calvin, You are so loved and always missed, as are Rainbow and Gaelen. Happy 41st month in heaven, our Calvin Phoenix. And congratulations on your new god-brother!
