Our condolences to Beannie

Our condolences to Beannie and the Clark family. Cliff was , to say the least a very interesting man. He was sort of the "GRANDFATHER" of the neighborhood we lived in. He had his "opinions" on most everything that went on there but he always was there to help a neighbor if they needed it. Cliff always did everything to the fullest, he never did anything half way. He was a really great man and he will be missed . Rest in Peace Cliff .
