  2. Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free.
    I’m following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when I heard him call.
    I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day.
    To laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Task left undone must stay that way.
    I found that peace at close of day.
    If my parting has left a void
    Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
    Ah yes, these things I too shall miss.
    Be not burdened with times of sorrow
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full, I’ve savored much
    Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch
    Perhaps my time seemed all to brief.
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief
    Lift up your hearts and share with me
    God wanted me now…he set me free

  3. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Shari . I am always here when you need me. We have shared many a text And I know how loved you daddy was and I know he knew it too. Big hugs and kisses to you all xoxo

  4. Shari and family, we are so very sorry for your loss. All of you remain in our thoughts and prayers.

  5. Shari and Family,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your whole family! SO sorry for your loss!! Please take comfort in the love he had for each of you! And cherish the memories and times together!! I know that’s hard and I’m sorry. Hold each other close! Love and prayers!!!

  6. Dear Beverly, Shari and Family….my heart is saddened to hear the news of Cliff’s passing. Will certainly be holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.

  7. At a time like this, one song comes to mind, “you were always on my mind.” And yes, it’s meant to be a love song, however, the overall message applies to any relationship that could have been better. There’s no more “what ifs” now. Those questions are irrelevant at this point.
    I would be a hypocrite if I said we were the best of friends and had a close relationship. However, I will say this. I always respected him and looked up to him in many ways. He was old-school and a man’s man. He always seemed strong willed, one of few words, and someone who would do whatever it took to help his family.
    I’m sad that he’s gone but happy he’s no longer in pain. Enjoy a peaceful eternity. You deserve it.
    Sincerely,
    Claude Cundiff,
    Claudine Cundiff

  8. Bev & Shari:

    Sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Cliff with a smile on his face, coming in on Thursday or Friday with his receipts in hand from his week out of town. He was a neat guy and I am sure he is going to be missed greatly. The great memories will always be there for you. He will pop into your thoughts at unexpected times. Something you see will trigger a happy memory.
    I lost my Dad 6 months ago and I still miss him. But the good memories are a blessing.
    Thoughts & Prayers,
    Cheryl Slater
