More than a year and half after John and Elizabeth Calvert disappeared, their family plans a public memorial service in Atlanta. The family also established scholarships in each of their names.
David White, Elizabeth's brother, said he hopes the service and scholarships will help the family and community honor the couple, who vanished March 3, 2008, after a meeting with a bookkeeper they suspected had stolen money from their businesses.
"Whatever has happened to them, you've got to put them to rest," White said. "We need to turn them over to God."
