Hanging in there
If Cliff had lived, he would be 76 years old today. Today grandson Brandon (right above) emailed pictures from Cliff's birthday last year.
I started a new scrapbook yesterday with mementos of our life together.
We had so much fun together. Except for his last several months when he was so ill, I think he was happy. I want to remember him as he was before he became so ill, and in his five wishes document that is how he said he wanted to be remembered.
I am retired widow living in a little town in a beautiful valley between two mountain ranges. I share my home with my cat, known from time to time as "fatcat," bratcat," and "bruiser." I keep busy with volunteer activities, gardening, and playing music.
Many of the photos posted herein are either taken by me or are in my family archives. When others are used, their origins will be cited. Please do not use these photos or reprint these writings without my permission. Thank you.
