Uncle Cliff, you are already sorely missed by everyone whose life you touched. You lit up the room when you walked in. Kept the laughter and joy for life as a total inspiration to us all. We will never forget the joy you spread and the love you gave unconditionally. The devotion you had for our dear Aunt Mickey was a perfect example of your beautiful soul. All our family that has gone before you are waiting joyfully with open arms. Love you forever... your loving niece, Becky

I have been playing golf at Wooded View for many years, and every time I saw Cliff in the clubhouse, he always had a smile on his face and a kind word to share. He will certainly be missed, and I send my thoughts and prayers to his family during this difficult time.
