Memories Timeline


  1. Cliff and I were in the same Sunday School Class for many years. He was a rather quiet person but when he spoke we all listened! We will certainly miss him. Condolences to Rachel and family.

  2. Cliff was strong on his Christian faith. He was a faithful member of the Edgar Couch Sunday School Class. Cliff was a man you could depend on. He taught Sunday School and was lovingly devoted to his wife Rachael. It was a joy worshiping with Cliff and Rachael at Lawrenceville First Baptist Church.
    Rest in Peace Cliff ! Rachael, we are praying for you and Carol and Gerald
