Cliff's dad passed away this afternoon, or rather his body did. Cliff's dad had been gone since the moment of the stroke over two weeks ago. I'm glad that the long wait has ended for Cliff and his family. I can only hope, that if I'm ever put into a position like the one Cliff has had to deal with for the last few weeks, that I can stand up anywhere nearly as well as he has. I didn't know Cliff's dad well, but he raised a hell of a good son, a man whose friendship I am thankful for every day.
