RIP Cleveland, you never changed from the first day you and my brother became friends. Always pleasant with a kind word, now playing golf above.

To the family my deepest condolences. Cleve will truly be missed but not forgotten a longtime friend. God's blessings.

Dear Brian and family,
Extremely saddened to learn of the passing of your father. I saw him last summer at the driving range giving a lesson to a new golfer; it was great to see him enjoying doing what he loved to do. God bless and comfort you and your family.

Mr. Cleveland thanks for the memories. Take your rest , it was my pleasure to have known you. I remember seeing you at Ms. Fannies when Douglasville and I would visit. RIP.
