I have memories of seeing Clifford every time I visited my parents at church. He was faithful to friends, family, church and his Lord.

Mary Jane, So sorry to hear of Cliff's passing. I remember he was a Great servant that would help many of his neighbors. Now he's in the Lord's army! I pray you and your family are comforted by God's Grace during this difficult time.
