What a great man. It was an honour to know you Cliff, Sir


Goodbye, old chap! I shall always treasure the time we knew one another at MH and your goodness and intrinsic integrity -- not to mention how we maintained contact over the years through our calls and emails, always illuminating and never dull, and the genuine bond between us notwithstanding our widely different views on many aspects of life (and politics!). You are an irreplaceable gem who will be sadly missed by all who had to pleasure and privilege to know you.

Gerry & I want to express our deepest sympathies. We will always fondly remember many conversations we had with Cliff. He had so many interests in life, and the greatest cruise adventures with his lovely traveling partner Teresa. Our hearts go out to Teresa, to Cliff's children, his grand-children and his great-grandchildren. He will be missed! We pray that God comfort you all at this very sad time.

Gerry & Sue Kolasser

May God rest his soul. My condolences to the family .
