Aunt Edna & Family

Just wanted to let you know even though I am not there I am thinking of you. Uncle Clifford was always one of my favorite uncles. You never knew quite what he was up to or what to expect when he was around. I have very fond memories of all of us camping, going down the hill to the garden on the river bank, to the basement to see his trains and visiting your house at Christmas and the Potters Picnic when we were all younger. I also still remember him always wanting to race my train against his. I am glad I was able to visit with him back in March of this year where he jokingly renewed that challenge!

Love,

Janet

My sympathy to all of you. Cliff was one terrific guy whom we all loved and loved to be around. I will always remember his laugh and his nickname for me Silly. I will miss him, but you all will too. He always had a smile and was good to my Mother Aunt Ria and was a favorite of hers. To know Cliff was to love him. My family sends their condolences.
