    I am so dearly sorry for your family’s loss. Please accept my condolences to your family, death of a loved one is never easy to accept. Our Creator, Jehovah God has made a promise to end death forever; this promise can be found in his Word the Bible at Rev. 21:3 & 4.
    Please visit and find satisfying answers as to why we die and what we can do to see our loved ones again; resurrected in a paradise right here on earth. Again, please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. I pray that you and your family find comfort in this sure promise from our Creator.

    I was fortunate to meet Clifford in my younger years in Corbin. My bonus dad, Jasper Scott, introduced me to him. As I was scrolling through these today, I recognized his picture and the name. It has been so many years but I remember I’m telling me about his work at NASA. As a young boy, it was awesome. So sorry for the families loss. Heaven, I’m sure gained a fine man. I was so fortunate to be apart of the Scott family. I really cherish my years growing up with many of them. RIP Clifford.
