James, I am so sorry to hear this. God bless you and your family. Ricki Baker Ricki Baker, April 14, 2017 I met Caleb years ago through his sister Hannah, when Katie and Hannah were friends before we moved from Morningside many years ago. I was fortunate to receive one of those beautiful snowflakes that he made. Caleb was a sweet strong young man that never let anything get him down. We were truly blessed to have met him and he will truly be missed. Katie and I would like to send Jane, Hannah, and James our thoughts and prayers. Just remember you have those wonderful memories like this rest of us do that will get all of us through missing him. GOD BLESS!!! Cyndie & Katie Greebon, April 10, 2017 My heart filled prayers are with the Akers and Brock families. Caleb was always such a sweet young man. I remember how he always wanted to say the prayer before every family day meal. And I have my own little collection of his precious snowflakes that I will always treasure. Caleb didn't have the easiest life here on earth, but he was always smiling & telling jokes. And I take comfort knowing that he is in God's hands now and in eternal peace. God Bless ~ Karen Karen Connell, April 9, 2017 I was a substitute nurse in the Allen school district for 8 years. During that time I met Caleb at Anderson, Curtis, and I think at Freshman Center and maybe even High School. Every time I met him in a new environment he remembered me with a big smile. He always helped me pronounce the Caleb name right. I never could remember how to pronounce it, and he said ,"That is alright." Such a nice young man. Heaven has a new angel. Joan Thomson RN, April 9, 2017 While I did not have the opportunity to meet Caleb, I felt I knew him through my sister Dee who shared his wonderful spirit with me! May he rest in peace, and may God hold you and your family close during this emotional time. Dianne Ferguson, April 9, 2017 CALEB was a wonderful spirit; my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love Dee Dee Ferguson Kilcrease , April 9, 2017 This is Aaron's mother. We are heartbroken over Caleb's passing. Aaron has lost his best friend and he is very sad. When Caleb first moved in and they were room mates I used to say they were like two bear cubs hibernating with all the naps they took. Everytime I went to visit at the house Caleb always told me Aaron was like a brother to him and he always gave me a little something he would make. The last time I saw him was over the winter break at the holiday party. He made a snow flake for me and I still have it on the fridge. I will never take it down. Caleb was so very special to us. I believe he has always been an Angel his entire stay here on earth and he has just gone back to Heaven to be with God. We have all been blessed to have known him and it has been a true honor. Aaron's brother David sends his love as well. He was very sad too when I shared the news with him. We all enjoyed working with Caleb at summer camp. He had so much fun. I drove him and Aaron in the car back and forth so they would not have to walk so much. I know Caleb will be waiting to greet Aaron in Heaven one day and this give me much comfort.
Cookie Dobson, April 7, 2017 Janie, Hannah and James we are so sorry for your loss. We will miss Caleb to. We love you. God Bless. Jake and Ellen Kilcrease, April 7, 2017 Caleb lived 3 doors down from us in Texas, he used to walk to my house and sit with Nicky and girls eat snacks, show off his muscles, or new tricks he learned that day, when he saw my car pulling in he would just be a waving as I pulled in. What a joy! He graduated with my Hannah Yukich when he walked that stage I screamed just as loud as I did for my own child graduating. He was always a familiar happy face to see when you came home. He was the light of our neighborhood and everyone knew him. My nicky used to sit with him for what seemed liked hours and just talk about stuff. I called Caleb a few months back he left me a voicemail to call him at his group home. I was so surprised I called his mom, she said yes he still had my number to give him a call! So I did we talked about his new Roomate, what he ate today and of course about How nicky was doing. I'm so sad today for his mother Jane Elizabeth Brock Akers and sister Hannah Akers the two of them the way they love and cared for Caleb was truly remarkable. The amount of patience and meticulous words of affirmation and love is something you can't imagine it can only be seen! I feel so honored to know Caleb and the Akers family. What a joy that young man was to our Morningside neighborhood, Allen schools and to every single person that knew him!!! Oh Sweet boy, now a young man! Now hanging out watching all of us. You will be truly missed!! Tracey Yukich Lane, April 7, 2017
