Cliff and Angus were our neighbors growing up and were wonderful friends. Our families had a lot of great times together. I never saw Cliff in a down mood, he always had a smile on his face. I wish I could have gotten to see him once more but the distance between our homes didn't allow it and for that I will always have a small regret. Rest in Peace my friend, thanks for the memories.

Dear Cliff and Becky,

I was thinking about your dad the other day. I’m so sorry to hear about his passing. I loved your dad. He was always there to help when needed and truly was a servant of God. I am sure he is reaping his rewards today. Your dad, and you also Cliff, have been there to every visitation as my family died one by one. I am heartbroken that I am out of town on a long weekend and not able to be there for his visitation or funeral. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I first met Mr. Quine in the early 60's. He was the first person I ever took a beer from. He drank Hamm's beer back then. I got caught.
Although he will forever be a chapter in my past, I haven't seen Mr. Quine for about 45-50 years now. I remember he was a man who's life witnessed that he strived to be a good Christian.
Having recently lost my eldest son I realize there are no words or actions that bring true comfort; only prayers for your peace to return to you. Shalome

Our family and Cliff's were next door neighbors on Marquette St. He was Big Cliff to us and the best neighbor you ever want to have. Only wish I would have had more time to visit with him.
