Not sure what to say?

To all the Clifford Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Jim (although) I was very young at that time, but I Nancy and I were classmates and I also knew David. May the memories you all have of him, fill your heart with joy and not sadness.

Tim & Laurie - We were both saddened both the sudden loss of your Dad, please know you and the entire Clifford family are in our thoughts and prayers.

My Prayers and Condolences go out to the entire Clifford Family. Now he is at peace and can be forever in God's Grace and Love while his legacy continues here on earth with his family and friends in the community he so loved and cared for. Psalm 23 and Psalm 27 demonstrates God's Love and Care for us. In sympathy and understanding with you all.

My condolences to Jim's family. I, too, worked with Jim at New England Telephone. A nicer guy couldn't be found. He was an inspiration to me at my first real job as an adult.

The entire Clifford family have our deepest sympathy. Jim and I started with New England Telephone and Telegraph with the E.I.Department in June of 1966. He was a teriffic co-worker, always willing to help you in any way he could. His advice on planting a vegetable garden was much appreciated. I was fortunate to have known and worked with Jim.

Jim has been apart of our family for 52 years! In later years we shared our love for gardening. Jim said, he loved picking our big blueberries! So glad he is a christen and will live forever. He will be missed. To the extended Clifford family our prays are with you at this time.

Jim can roam the hills and fields forever now and never have to pull another weed! We are thinking of the Clifford's and thier extended family tonight.

Sorry to hear of your loss.Our prayers are with you. May God comfort you. Helen Pembricks-Lebanon

I knew Jim from 1966 to present as we both worked for New England Telephone and all the phone companies that came after that. I went on one job with him in Hartford, Vt where someone shot the telephone cable with an arrow. We had to carry a 28 ft ladder way up a hill and into the woods where the cable was located. Jim fixed it, of course and we laughed about how good a shot the archer was. He was an excellent telephone man and above all, a real gentleman and nice guy. I'm sure he will be...
