I use to work with Cliff at Baucom Press. When I got into the business he made me feel welcome and was very helpful sharing his knowledge.
I was alway impressed with his calm manner, he always had a smile on his face. Even when he got frustrated, when things got crazy he always smiled and did his job. I have often thought of Cliff in similar situations and when I enter contest. He seemed to have the magic touch. Once I entered a contest by filling out 50 entry forms for a car at Southpark, Cliff filled out 1, he won.
Did the same for a trip to I believe, Alaska, he won.
I am sorry to say I have only seen Cliff a few times since he retired, at a store or restaurant and wish I could have made the services. I have often thought of Cliff on handling work situations and when entering contest. I will keep him in my thoughts.

I have many fun memories of Cliff and the Herndon family at Central UMC. He was a kind man, serving others in his very gentle manner. He will always be part of my growing up years and I enjoyed seeing him on my return visits to Central for BBQs and other special events.

Take care and love to all the family,

I worked with Cliff for many years at Baucom Press and have very fond memories of him. He was always winning one contest or another, gave me a coffee mug he won once. I took over his job when he retired but would never have made it without him coming by to help me when I didn't know what I was doing. Always a friend and am grateful to have known him.

I am so sorry to hear about your father. I remember him fondly. His family was a reflection of his kind and loving heart. The Angels are rejoicing as they receive another saint into God's kingdom.

I pray God will ease your sorrow during this time.
