Clifton’s Journey on Earth

sharing about the goodness and mercy of God. He was full of knowledge and wisdom, and

loved gardening, and never met an animal that he didn't feed. He was a collector of MANY
things, an herbalist and a master of all trades. Clifton will be truly missed by all who knew and
