I'm so very sorry for the loss to your family, Monte, Cody, Shelly & Jessica. I know the four of you more than I do the others, and if that is any indication, I have no doubt that Kaleb was a wonderful person! Take comfort in the memories that you all shared as you face the difficult days ahead. Thinking of you all!

I still can't get my head wrapped around by this. This is too unreal. I'm so sorry for the family to lose Kaleb like that. It is a total Tragedy. Kaleb was a good friend even though we weren't close, I still remember when Teen Reach was at the Health Department and I would see him there hanging out with some of our mutual friends and often I would join in and just have a blast with the group of friends we had going around that time. He was a nice kid growing up and seeing this has to be an illusion. Even though I'm across the country, I still cherish the memories that I had with Kaleb. I send my greatest condolences to his family and we'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers. He will be dearly missed.
