To Those I Love And Those Who Loved Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go...
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears;
Be happy that we had these precious years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must;
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on;
So if you need me, call and I will come,
Though you can't see me or touch me,
I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear,
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say
Cliff , you will be missed.
Our sincere condolences to you and your family. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers... Joyce, Bently and Michele
To all who have left condolences, thank you. There is nothing I can say to enhance my father's accomplishments, morals, kindness and work ethics as he always did everything to the utmost of his ability. His guidance, advice and sense of humour will be missed. I feel very lucky and fortunate to have had him for a father and I feel priveledged and honoured to have him as my best friend. My thanks to all for your support in this difficult time. Lindsay Anger
Dear Joan and family, Please accept our deepest and sincerest condolences. How do I begin to tell you how grateful and appreciative we have been all these years of Cliff's kindness, support, and encouragement when life challenged us. His memory will certainly live on my family. The world has lost a "GOOD" man, a man who has impacted many lives in a positive way. May he rest in the peace he so well deserves
Cliff, I won't say goodbye. I'll say so long. I'll always see you on your carrier hauling lumber from Alberta Lumber Company in False Creek to yards in Vancouver and me waving to you. Gone but not forgotten. "So long Cliff".
