    I’m so sorry and sad that my good lifelong friend Cliff has passed. We have shared so many good times together since our sophomore year in high school.I know the past few years have been hard on him as he dealt with some debilitating health issues. Now he can Rest In Peace with the Lord.

    Nancy and I send our deepest heartfelt condolences to Sandy and the family.
