Susie and family
Hard to put into words how sorry we felt when we heard Clifton passed.
We will continue to pray for peace and comfort. Hold good memories close and take care of each other. Let us know if we can do anything and that we are here for you. He will be missed.

Sorry to hear about your Dad, Kevin and Chris. I used to see him through the Rifle and Pistol club at Shelton range in Ft. Benning. He was quite a person and I really liked him. You will miss him just as I miss my Mother and Father to this day but with time not seeing him will get a little easier. I know it’s a difficult time and accept my sorrow for your family. Take care and be strong for your Mother now. Greg

I’m so sorry for your loss! He was a wonderful brother-in-law. I never doubted that he loved me!
