It is with heavy hearts that we hear of Cliff's passing. Words can not express the profound influence he had on our lives as we began our careers in education. His wise counsel helped us make career choices that molded the direction of our futures. More important, he was our friend. We witnessed first hand his love for his children. There is no way to put into numbers the thousands of lives he had a hand in helping on the road to success. Though he is gone and will be missed, yet we will enjoy grateful memories of him forever. We send our sincere condolences to the entire family.
