Ken & Carolyn: Had the pleasure of playing golf with Cliff. Played with the Monday Golf League, and on golf trips. Cliff could hit the ball a long way, that was the good news. Bad news was you never knew where the ball was going. I was no better, two of a kind.
DEEPEST SYMPATHY FROM the Blaies Family and ALL FELLOW GOLFERS.
