Mrs. Dunaway & Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you in the passing of your beloved husband. I got to know Mr. Cliff when I was working as a receptionist in avionics at Robins. My husband, Ned who passed away in January briefly worked for him while in nursing school.

I met Cliff many years ago at the ball park when the Macon Braves were still in town. We saw many games and talked about sports, family, computers, and just about everything under the sun. His intelligence and his love for his family was a testament to a life well lived. Rest In Peace and may God Bless you and your family.
