Life can't be counted in candles or measured in years that have flown...its counted in kindness, close friends and loved ones, and in all the sweet blessings we've known. In our love for God. For all those who have gone on ahead of us, they will forever be in our hearts. Do not shed a tear for I am forever near. Love always.

I will miss Cliff's words of inspiration and encouragement that he faithfully posted in the forums of Birds & Blooms, Taste of Home and most recently the backyard bunch.
