Tribute to Caleb

Our friend, David Clowers, put together this tribute to Caleb which was shown at Caleb's Life Celebration.

Near the end of the video, is a clip of Caleb singing "Awesome God." That clip was recorded by Caleb's Aunt Jennifer the week before Caleb passed. He was having great difficulty speaking & his speech was becoming harder to understand. Though he struggled, he never stopped praising God.

The video clip at the very end is Caleb doing "The Caterpillar." This was recorded 2 weeks prior to his death. At that time, he was unable to walk & was very frustrated because we tried to get him to walk. Once he got settled back down, he says, "I can do the caterpillar." He then proceeded to do so for the doctor. This caterpillar video was taken the next day when he did it again for his physical therapist at the hospital.

The song is by Matthew West & called "The Motions."  This was Caleb's favorite song & he lived this song out. He gave his all in everything he did -- even at the end.

Thank you so very much, David, for creating this video tribute for us.

Angel, Richard & Caden

    Much Love,

  2. Your family and Caleb’s story has touched my heart. I still check the blog daily hoping to get updates on how you’ll are doing since Caleb has passed and I am so glad I checked it today. That was an amazing tribute. My heart is still breaking for you and your family. I can’t even imagine what the past few months were like but your faith and they way you believed in god was so amazing. I wish I could have your faith. Even though we have never met I want you and your family to know how amazing I think you are and may god bless you and help you heal. I will continue to check the blog even though this was created to keep us informed on Caleb, I would still like to know how you’ll are doing. God Bless you!

  4. What a wonderful idea to have this video to share with all of us out here! Thank You!

    Although I've never had the pleasure of meeting you all in person, your story of love, faith and perseverance has touched my heart. Caleb was an amazing child. His story is one of heartbreak, faith and courage, and one I'll never forget.

    You're always in my daily thoughts and prayers.

    Lots of Love,

  5. What an awesome child. This video was so touching to James and I. To hear him singing to the LORD even though it was hard for him really got me down to my core. How blessesd you two are to have had such a wonderful earth bound angel as a son. We love you.

  6. What an awesome video you shared. It is obvious that Caleb had a zeal for life. He is walking on streets of gold and smiling down at you from heaven! Thank you for sharing him with us!

  7. Be not sad that Caleb is not with you now. Although you may miss him dearly, remember that he is in a place with no pain or suffering and will be there with open arms awaiting your reunion.

  8. Thanks for sharing the beautiful video. Praying for you and especially for Caden tonight. Mary Nan Maberry
