Default Sad to hear......

Another collector gone....... my condolences to the family.

Had dealings with Cliff years ago, always pleasant to deal with. never actually met but during the course of our conversations found that he had some common ancestries on the Carriere side.

Sorry to hear that. Please pass on my condolences to Cliff's family and friends.

Cliff was last active on this forum in 2012, possibly due to his lengthy illness. I hope he has found peace now.

Cheers bud,Cliff.
Cliff, I just found out that you have been gone for a year now... I could not leave any online obit. so I figured the best place would be to get back on to Maple Leaf Up, my god it is 2019 and last time I wrote on here was 2004. Upon logging in I found I had 8 notifications, 1 from you! so crazy! It contains some GREAT life advice that even though I did not read it back then seems like I have followed it to a tee.
So I guess this is my guestbook entry to you.
Miss you my friend.
To all the others, hello, hope you are well.
