Dear Calvey's, I am very sorry you lost your Dad, grandad, former husband etc. He was a lot of things to a lot of people. I have a lot of memories of RJC as a child, as I do all of the Calvey Clan. Mr. Calvey always had a wonderful sense of humor and lightness and that will be missed. I hope you are all healthy and well in this time. Warmest Regards, Jimmy Ringwood
