My sympathies to Cliff's daughters (I graduated with Becky). I know you will miss your dad... what a long life he had with you!
I loved serving Cliff at the various places I tended bar throughout the years. He was always reliable for a smile and good conversation. My positives are with everyone affected.
My thoughts are with the Gifford family. In the bible we find hope and comfort. Is. 25:8 "God will swallow up death forever and will wipe tears from all faces."
I enjoyed working with "Cliffy" at NuCara. He was a great guy who will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
I enjoyed working with Clifford at NuCara Pharmacy and the times we could get together to have a "cold one". He will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
