Doug, Jackie, Mimi and family, I visited with Cliff shortly before Christmas, part of the visiting we do at First English. We had a short but pleasant visit, remembering a few church memories and also the time when Doug and family lived on Lawndale. Cliff enjoyed talking about his grandkids and great-grandkids as well. He was a fine man and you have my sympathies as you mourn his loss.
