Letter: Calaway was developer of community and an architect of balanced society

Jim Calaway's life celebration was one of the most humorous, intelligent and compassionate I have attended. Jim and Connie are an amazing force. I say are, because in a real way Jim's here, in our hearts, as his giving affects our lives.

Mother Teresa said, "It is not that we give, but the love that we give with, that makes the difference." Jim understood that, and nowhere is it clearer than with his CARE shelter.

I considered Jim to have been a developer of community and an architect of balanced society. I can only hope that his example continues to ripple out and inspire. Thanks Jim.
