The last time I saw Cliff was just after a Sunday morning service at ECC several Sundays ago. I loved how Cliff always would greet me so heartily; look intently into my eyes and when he'd ask "so how are you doing Tony?" I could feel that Cliff really wanted to know! I can only wonder how great it was for Cliff to be greeted by JESUS upon his arrival in Heaven and hear "Welcome good and faithful servant!"
