Tonight I was thinking of Clifford Wayne. I am his step sister, Mary Catherine. His dad was married to my mother, Liney. I am very sorry to hear of your loss and was extremely proud to read of Clifford's accomplishments. I thought of him often and wished to have had the opportunity to talk to him rather than to learn of his death.

My heart breaks to know that I will not hear Cliff's voice or laugh on Sunday mornings anymore. The most generous of men always there when someone was in need. I will miss him always.
