I want to express my condolences for your loss of Cliff. I went to DeLaSalle High School with Cliff. I am also a retired Chicago Police Officer and saw Cliff occasionally while working. I no longer live in Chicago and will not be able to attend the services. I am sure he will be missed by all and again want to express my condolences to the family

I will remember Grandpa Cliff as a (usually) quiet man, filled with love for his children and grandchildren. He was always helping out in some way. My condolences on such a huge loss for the family. We are sending love and prayers to Chicago today and in the days to come. Grandpa, you will be sorely missed, but we will see you again one day!
