Don t let them say I wasnt born, That something stopped by heart, I felt each tender squeeze you gave, Ive loved you from the start. Although my body you cant hold, It doesnt mean Im gone, This world was worthy, not, of me, God chose that I move on. I know that pain that drowns your soul, What you are forced to face, You have my word, Ill fill your arms, Someday we will embrace. Youll heat that it was "meant to be God doesnt make mistakes, But that wont soften your worst blow, Or make your hearts not ache. Im watching over all you do, Another child youll bear, Believe me when I say to you, That I am always there. Therell come a time, promise you, When you will hold my hand, Stroke my face and kiss my lips, And then youll understand. Although Ive never breathed your air, Or gazed into your eyes, That doesnt mean I never "was" An angel never dies.

The band is based at Little Rock but also has members in Jacksonville and Conway. This is Callan's fifth year of playing bluegrass music. He has performed statewide at shows and bluegrass festivals. He began playing bluegrass after being encouraged by a long-time friend, Tommy Hunt, whom Callan described as an "ex- cellent banjo player." They played with the Mount Nebo Picken' Palor Boys, for a while later with Foothill Review, then in 1983 Callan and Johnny Hamilton of Russellville formed Lost Mountain Bluegrass Band, which performed 75 shows over the last three years. The band disolved last fall when two of its members had to drop out and Callan was unable to find replacements. Callan was invited to join Tru-Blue as a fiddler soon after his former band disolved. He said he told other band members he felt honored that they would ask him to join their band. Callan played the violin as a youth but laid it up for about 30 years until Hunt encouraged him to start playing again. He has won seven trophies and several certificates of appreciation and has a scrapbook covering all of his achievements over the past four years. Known statewide by bluegrass fans, Callan is a member of the Arkansas Bluegrass Association and participates in their programs and activities. Callan said that Tru-Blue has four stage shows and 12 festivals at which to play between now and late August. He said he is looking forward to getting started. He plans to get the band to come to Dardanelle this spring and perform a free concert for people who are unable to go to the bluegrass festivals. "That is if all goes as planned, and I feel that it will, I know the band is ready to come here and perform," he said.
