Char, Chip, Kristin, Kevin and extended families. John and Jen shared the sad news of Cliff's passing. It has been many many years since I've visited with Cliff, but I sure do remember many wonderful holiday parties shared with the Porter, Prokup and Smolenski families. Your loss is great because your love was great. Sending you all warm caring thoughts to wrap around your broken hearts to keep them safe until you're strong again. Thinking of you with sympathy and love. Gary and Mary Beth xoxoxoxoxoxox
