Dear Phai,
I send condolences from Betsy, Bill, and Jane Foster, and our mom Shelly Foster. Cliff was our step-uncle, and we have fond memories of times together. The backyard dinners, always superb, was a special treat when we came over. Cliff presided over the BBQ like a master. That was his domain. He was proud of his efforts, and rightly so. You may not know it, but Cliff died four days before his last surviving step brother Alvin. They're all gone now. And we'll miss them all!
With love and condolences to you,

Aunt Phai, You've been through alot... I'm so sorry you're now going through this....I know you have some wonderful memories of lots of fun times...
I believe God gives us memories to help us thru these times.
Uncle Cliff was an amazing, great, fun guy! I have some great memories with both of you! You were always my favorite Aunt & Uncle.
I remember the time Uncle Cliff tried to teach me how to parallel park. I'd failed my driving test, so he came to my rescue and tried to teach me. He took me several times and was so patient. But, I just couldn't get it.
Another time was when I was 20 yrs old, driving home from work. I was driving by your house and thought my Dad was coming out of your house with both of you. (I had borrowed a car from my Mom's friend). Long story short - I hit a parked car (old cadillac) head on. You both came down to see what happened,(not knowing it was me) I jumped out of the car into Uncle Cliffs arms and was crying and said; " Oh! Uncle Cliff " he stepped back and I'll never forget the look on his face. He thought it was a drunk driver... The police came, you both took me home. Years later, Uncle Cliff told me; that neighbor tried to give him trouble for the longest time.....
I'll miss him! But, I'm glad he's in a better place now!

I worked under Cliff as an apprentice electrician off and on for several years back in the early 80’s. His highest professional integrity and personal quality placed him high on a pedestal in my mind, and set the bar to which I set my sights, and strove to achieve in my own career and personal life as well… I’ve thought of him often over the years, always with much fondness and appreciation. I remember when I completed my apprenticeship, after all the hours of classroom education and field training in which he played a major role, and I had just passed the journeyman examination, he set up a surprise graduation luncheon for me at his house in Torrance. He’d arranged for his wife Phay to come home early and prepare a delicious roast on their grill with all the fixings and celebratory enhancements. That generous expression of his genuinely kind heart and friendly caring nature meant so much, and has stayed with me over the years as one of my warmest memories... What a great guy… Cliff, thank you for everything, and I wish you well on your journey; and to you Phay, my deepest and most sincere condolences and prayers for strength in this most difficult time, until you and Cliff can be together again…

Our condolences to Phay and the family. Cliff was a good guy, whose long-time residence and memory helped in my History of the Torrance Schools. He was a fount of information about early Torrance.
