Dear Chadderton Family,
My sincere sympathies at this very sad time. Cliff was a remarkable man, with such a big heart and a remarkable legacy to have left behind with his dedication to The War Amps.
My mother's comments(Andrea Seim Blackburn Thompson)left early on in the guest book echo much of the sentiment I also share.
My grandfather (George G Blackburn) and Cliff's friendship was clearly a dear one to them both, and to our whole family as well.
Their memories were many, and cherished, from wartime all the way to the years nearing my grandfather's passing.
Cliff was one of my grandfather's dearest supporters at a time his books were still being written (over a decade of researching and writing involved in that trilogy The Guns of Normandy; The Guns of Victory and Where The Hell Are The Guns?) and I know Cliff's support and encouragement meant to world to my grandfather.
He was such a kind, gracious, warm man, whom I know you will miss dearly, as will all who knew him.
May his dear, wonderful soul rest in peace.
