He was a very loving and compassionate child, always wanting to be with his family and friends. Caellan’s passion was anything to do with cars and trucks. He asked endless questions about vehicles and the first question he asked anyone was what kind of car they drove. He made an infinite variety of sounds as he played; car doors, keys in the ignition, engines, airbrakes, back-up warnings as well as many others. He loved being outdoors and any sort of wildlife. Sea turtles and piping plovers were some of the creatures closest to his heart. He was incredibly musical. He remembered any song he heard and would sing it back to you in his beautiful voice. His innate sense of rhythm was expressed through drumming. He did so any chance he had, whether or not it was one of his drums, because anything could be turned into a drum. He had a vivid imagination.
