To the electrifying and legendary three-time Super Bowl champion Mr. Branch, for making my childhood as a Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders' fan memorable! You Sir, will not be forgotten by Raider Nation, nor true fans of professional football!

One of my favorite players,RIP!!!

Cliff's apartment was across the hall from mine one semester at C.U. What a warm, kind, friendly young man he was, and a joy to watch on the football field. Cliff made a lasting impression on my heart, and I hope his family will find peace and comfort in their memories of such a lovely human being. God bless you all.
