Meet Angel Caleb. He bravely fought Mitochondrial Disease. Caleb passed away on May 22, 2014, at just 6 years old.
As shared by his family, “Caleb loved to spend time with his family and was his sister’s number one fan. He enjoyed spending as much time as he could with his brothers as well, and always looked forward to them coming home from school. He enjoyed Final Fantasy, playing Candy Land, and being a regular comedian. He always had a knock knock joke up his sleeve. If anyone needed help, he was always the first to volunteer. He loved to give to others and took great pride in creating “Birthday Bags” for the Child Life team at Tuft’s Floating Hospital for Children. He wanted to be sure every child that had to spend their birthday in the hospital had a special day. He brought joy and laughter to everyone he met and will be greatly missed.”
