Caleb you are a beautiful soul and person inside and out, and could light up any room you walked in. You always made me smile and laugh every time I saw you when I was helping out w/ the Marching Band events and competitions. Even when you busted your head that year right before w/ left SGHS to go to a competition. I stayed w/ you until your grandmother got there to take you to Urgent Care for stitches, and you kept asking me could you just go after the competition to ER. You had me laughing the entire time, even with the pain I know you were in, since I had busted my head when I was a little younger than you in almost exact same spot as yours. You were determined you were not going to miss the competition and you didn't either, you were like no other child. My heart breaks to know how much pain you were going through, you are at peace now and will have no more pain or hurt. You will always be in Hunter, Alyssa and my Hearts. We are going to miss you, your smile, your joy, and your love. We were Truly BLESSED to have known you. Until we meet again sweet Caleb. WE LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY DEEPLY

Caleb was a bright light in all our lives. He will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone that loved him. Why we had to say goodbye so soon is a mystery but I can feel his peace and see his smiling face so clearly. We will listen for him and look for signs of his eternal presence the rest of our days. We love you forever Caleb Bost. Go fly high until we meet again- Aunt Jenny, Uncle Doug, Jackson, Patrick and Becca

Your on my mind heavy today Caleb. It’s all I can do not to cry when I talk about you to my parents. It just breaks my heart to think about how you did it. And to think about how deeply you were hurting. I sure hope your soul is at peace now. You deserve that. We all miss you handsome ❤️ You’ve definitely left your mark on everyone’s lives.

Dear Damon, Rachel, and family... I am so very sorry for your loss of Caleb. Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1). Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences…. John

Caleb, you were the most outgoing and energetic person I’ve ever met. I remember riding the bus with you in middle school, you got bullied. People made fun of you. But not me, I enjoyed being your friend. Your personality was too much for some people back in middle school. But I adored it. Then you came to high school. Everyone loved you then.. you grew up. And became even more amazing. We didn’t really talk in high school at first.. until we got put in the same drivers ed class. I looked forward to going everyday because of you. You made me laugh, you made me happy, and you got me in trouble. As I did you. You eventually got kicked out of the class because me and you kept playing around. And you told me I got you kicked out. And I felt so bad! You never had any idea how bad I felt. But you came and sat beside me at lunch and hugged me and told me it was okay. You also told me about your family problems and how depressed you were. I tried to help and talk to you. But you brushed it off.. and now I feel that I should’ve tried harder to get you to talk. We all should’ve tried harder. I wish we would’ve continued to talk after the drivers ed class was over. I wish I would’ve shot you a text, or a call. I wish you were still here to give me a hug right now.. you gave the best hugs. I remember you used to wear my jacket everyday we had that class together. And I looked at that jacket today.. and I just cried.. it’s crazy to think you were once in that. My heart aches now knowing that you were hurting so deeply. But now I hope you are at peace. Rest easy, sweet Caleb ❤️

This still doesn’t feel real, I loved you to the ends of the earth. From the moment I saw you swinging from a tree looking from my bedroom window, I knew you were someone I needed in my life. The best decision I ever made was asking you to sneak out with me at 3am that night and watching stars until the sun came up. We continued to do that, we would talk for hours and soon you asked me out. You treated me like I was the sun and you were the moon. You taught me so many things. You taught me how to love, how to trust again, how to be comfortable, and how to find joy in life. Thank you for all the times you woke me up with breakfast. Thank you for the times we danced in the rain and you tackled me in the mud. Thank you for always bringing me flowers you grew and day lillys you would find on the road. Thank you for pulling me out of my comfort zone. Thank you for sneaking me out to swim in the lake under a full moon at 4am. I’m forever thankful that I was able to spend the last 7 months with you, I’m at peace knowing I made you happy. You truly had the most beautiful soul. You were so selfless, so sweet, so intelligent, so thoughtful, and so passionate. I loved you more than anything, and I still do. I look out of my bedroom window today and I see us sitting by the bonfire with Maya, I see us watching movies and eating dinner with your parents, I see us dancing in your front yard in the pouring rain. I remember when you told me you had a surprise for me and to come to your shed around 1am. Of course I snuck over there and as soon as I walked in the lights turn on. You had strung up cute colorful lights all around the shed, music playing, and of course a ton of food. We spent the entire night together without a care in the world just talking and laughing. That was easily one of the best nights of my life. As I lay here, everything that taps at my window makes me think of you. I always think it’s you throwing pinecones at it trying to wake me up. I hope you knew how much I loved you, how much I adored you, and how much happiness you brought in my life. Thank you for all you have given us. I wish I could’ve taken your pain away, god knows you deserved the world. I love you Caleb Bost, I do and I always will. I hope you’re finally at peace my king❤️

You were always such a joy to be around. Such a warm spirit, funny, smart and best of all, you were an angel to Madi. You were part of the family and your beaming grin and goofy antics will truly be missed. I hope you are truly at peace and know of all the love that followed you home.

To say that you touched the lives of many would be an understatement. Not only were you the best next door neighbor of all time and a great friend; you were family. You always will be family. Your presence alone was a blessing to all of us and we are so grateful to have known someone so extraordinary and unique. I will always remember and deeply miss your contagious smile, goofy personality, sarcasm, and especially the love you had for my sister and the rest of my entire family. I will forever be so thankful for the memories you have given to us, Caleb. We love you so much. Endless prayers for you and your family. I will always be thinking of you.

Caleb was a great friend. He brought an energy to my life that I’m not sure if anyone could match. Caleb was the life of the party for everyone and made us all laugh day in and day out. He was charming to almost everyone he came across, whether it was the girl next door or the Guitar Center employee behind the counter, he surely brought light to everyone’s lives. We will miss you, Caleb.

You were an angel to our family even before you left us. Your goofy sense of humor and positive energy brought so much happiness to our daughter during a very difficult time in her own life. We loved you like one of our own and will forever treasure the memories we have with you. We are so heartbroken for you and your family. We will miss you.

Caleb, I have always and will continue to think so highly of you. You were mature well beyond your years and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and infectious personality whenever we were around each other. Your intelligence, humor, wit, musical ability, confidence, the list goes on... touched me and everyone with whom you came into contact. You are and will be missed, I pray your legacy will change the hearts of many. Love and Peace.

Caleb was a one of a kind friend. He will be forever missed. He was a light in every room he walked in, causing everyone to smile. Thank you Caleb for the endless laughs and for sharing your puppies with me.

Caleb had a gift of touching everyone he came in contact with. It mattered not if you were the mailman, his best friend, or some one he had never laid eyes on; the minute he caught your eye, you were blessed. His Witt, his charm, his smile, could instantly light up a room. He was such a hard worker; Mike and I have fond memories of various jobs Caleb performed for us. Mowing our lawn, helping move things, preparing work folders, planting flowers, the list goes on. He always had a purpose for his intent. Caleb, We will keep you forever in our hearts. Thank you for the joy you gave to us. Love, Mike, Pam, Lexi, Kelsey, and Bentley.

Caleb you will forever be in my heart.

Hunter, Bryson, and I have so many great memories from over the years as they grew up with Caleb. He was almost always smiling and the times he wasn't smiling was because he was concentrating on some stunt the three of them were planning. The world has lost a shiny, bright light but we will keep his light alive in our hearts always.
Posted by Lisa Quinn on 21st December 2018
I only had the honor of meeting Caleb a handful of times but I feel like I knew him well through his proud grandmother's stories. Caleb was one of those kids you meet and immediately love for his outgoing and cheerful spirit. Heaven gained an angel but the world sure could have used many more years of Caleb around. I am praying peace over you all as you mourn this amazing young man. I pray this tragedy will somehow can be a blessing to someone even if we may never know it this side of heaven. Much love to you all.

This just doesn’t seem real... I have cried and cried. Caleb I will forever miss you and never will I ever forget you. I remember when I met you.. your first year of high school we had class together and you honestly got me threw the year. After that year we became best friends, pretty much inseparable, it was quite funny because people asked me all the time if we were dating. You always had a crush on me but I told you that we couldn’t date because I was almost 18 and you were 15. After that I never lived it down, you picked on me all the time saying “age is just a number”. But since I wouldn’t date you I did give you a kiss. ☺️No matter what class you were in you would always text me and ask what class I was in just so we could see each other. You made me laugh all the time; so hard that I cried. You brought so much joy into my life. If I was having a bad day you always new how to cheer me up and brighten up my day. I always heard from other people that you always talked about me, nothing bad, all good which made me smile. Every time I would see you in the parking lot at school for band practice I would run up to you and just cling to you, you would literally walk around with me clinged to you and didn’t care about band practice. You were the kind of person that put joy in everyone’s life, you didn’t have a care in the world about anyone else’s opinion, you just did your own thing. You were the best kind of person that anyone could ever meet... I’m so very best that I was able to have you apart of my life. Caleb I miss you, I can’t sleep and I can’t stop crying. I love you so much. I hope you have found peace and just know you will never leave my mind! R.I.P my love!

I was Caleb’s history teacher this year and I will miss his wit, his humor, his outgoing personality, his hair, and his smile. He was in my 2nd period Honors class and we have had some great times this semester. He was an unforgetable student. He was one of my “kids” and my heart hurts knowing he will no longer be able to brighten someone’s day the way he always brightened mine!
