Cliff was one of the most genuine people I have ever had the honor of meeting. The years of friendship will be dearly missed. He touched the lives of so many people. During his battle with cancer, he only divulged to a few, the problems at hand. He depended on me, as one of his confidants, to help him in his journey. Just when one would have thought Cliff was better, he turned for the worse. I will miss Cliff and all his comical musings. rest in Peace my friend....
