We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers as precious Aunt Clifagean's light continues to guide you and fill your hearts with warm memories. Our memories are certainly filled with her kindness, wit and passion for working their garden. I always loved Aunt Clifa's witty reactions and laugh at my Dad's razzing . Dad nick named her Olive Oil as your Dad was Popeye for his pipe. I can only hope to have the strength and will Aunt Clifa had to rehabilitate her self back to walking and the sharp mind she had at her age. She absolutely amazed us last year at Moms funeral. The way she stayed by Uncle Wayne and cared for him during his years of memory loss. Is a lesson in love and compassion that she passed down to her family that is worthy of the respect , admiration and love we have for Aunt Clifagean. Wishing the Family love, light and healing.
Esther, Carol and family
