I was taken by surprise today to learn of Calebs passing. I worked with him for a couple years and was always happy to see him when I went shopping at the Wedge. I am stunned and saddened as he played more of a role in my life than I think he ever knew. He was the one person at work that really took time and talked to me when I was having difficulties. I remember his kidness and I will never forget the lessons in life that I learned from him. I admired his level headedness and intelligence. It is only today that I learned the whole story of Thailand. I only knew that his parents were missionaries. I was working in an apartment and I saw his picture on the fridge. The last I saw him was in early November. I am deeply saddened and I send you my sincerest condolences.
Thank you for writing. Caleb was a great kid. I've learned since then that I should have worked with my kids about forgiveness. He took his life on his dad's BD. We're all a mess. The world's a mess, but I believe it is our job while we are here to find our way through. The devil is out to get us any way he can. With me, he tried to use religion, because I trusted anyone who named the name of Jesus. I learned that you cannot even truth "those people." The devil tried to use scripture on Jesus also in the wilderness to deceive Him and get Him (Jesus) to disobey God. The servant is not above the master. The Bible says that if we suffer with Him, that we shall also reign with him.
I was very distraught over Caleb's death, also... to the point that I wanted to take my own life. But, thankfully, I am old enough that I feel it won't be that long before I will get to go "home" and then I'll really know the whole story and understand the whole thing. It says there will be no more tears in heaven, so, God's got some pretty neat solutions for all the things that cause us grief and pain here on earth, evidently. He will need wise people to run the world in the 1000 year reign with Christ when Satan is bound up.
If you know Caleb's ex-wife Erin, leave a msg with her and have her give you my email so you can be in touch with me directly... or write a note on the Guest Book online of the Star Tribune where his Obit was and I will be able to be in touch with you personally. God bless you. I will be praying for you also... and remember, it's not over 'till it's over.... and it ain't over until righteousness covers the earth as the waters cover the seas. Thank God for that. I love you, too. Vivian.
As you know, now, we were really members of a cult.
