Mr Batte was a kind man. When I would go visit them he would always treat me with open arms. He will be greatly missed. I loved him and Mrs. Batte. Prayers for Cathy and the rest of his family.

Clif and Nelda were so precious and sweet to me when I began attending to St Paul. He was so attentive to her and always had his arm around her back...
Rest in your Jesus’ arms, Clif.....

Cliff Batte was one of the sweetest men I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. No matter where I’d see him, he’d always have that smile. I thought so much of him & Nelda. And now he is with his beloved. All the angels are rejoicing to have someone as special as he was.
My prayers go out to Kathy and her family.
