Caleb’s mother, Robin, died from breast cancer in January 2018 at the age of 53. Caleb credits his mother with instilling his faith in God in him.
He told the Titans website: “She filled my heart with the love of God and that’s why I am where I am today.”
“The 6,391 square foot home is a total loss,” Iredell County Emergency Management said in a news release, quoted by USA Today.
Christian Rogers, a 25-year-old family friend who was in the house when it exploded, is still hospitalized in stable condition.
