Distance has always prevented me from spending as much time with Uncle Clifton as I would have liked but when we did finally see each other I always knew I was loved. I am especially grateful that when Mom died Uncle Clifton, at age 83, drove all the way from Picayune to be there for his little brother. No doubt he will be missed by many, especially this niece.
