Caleb is the son of Jeff and Jessie Merrill. He is survived by four siblings: Danny, Ellie, Grace, and Noah. A sweet reunion in heaven is greatly anticipated.

Sometime, we’ll fall on bended knee,

And feel there, graven on His hand

Sometime with tearless eyes we’ll see

What, here, we could not understand.

So trust in God through all thy days;

Fear not, for He doth hold thy hand;

Though dark thy way, still sing and praise,

Sometime, sometime we’ll understand.
