A Farewell to Ol’ Slim

Our friend Calvin “Slim” Sorrows passed away last week and today, his friends and family celebrated his life. Slim was first a gentleman and he could relate to you whether you were two years old or eighty-two. He always had a smile and a story for you. My grand-daughters knew him as Ol’ Slim and and since they were old enough to realize what it meant, they knew he was one of the best fishermen they would ever know. They love to look through the album and pick out the photos of Slim. For me, he was a joy to take fishing….no matter what it was he caught, it was a wiggle on the end of his pole and he made it fun. There was a look on his face when he would hook up that I will never forget. I will always cherish our time on the water and I already miss him badly. He exemplified the motto “Attitude Makes the Difference”.
