Clifford was my father in law. I'm in shock.

In the last few years I spent more time with Clifford and Brenda than I had in the past. Since last year trying to visit at least once a week. In the last few months we would stop at Cookout for a blueberry milkshake extra blueberries and blueberry filled doughnuts. He would always say he was too full but he always finished the shake and had a doughnut later. Both were such wonderful giving people. His greatest joy was his grandchildren. Beneath that gruff exterior was a heart of gold. His kindness won't be forgotten.
