a thread for one of our own on this memorial day. [View all]
cliffordu lost his battle w als on feb 10 of this year.
i got close to cliff on fb a few years ago, and we were planning how to get together when he started getting sick.
i posted a few threads here about his dx, and his battle at the time.
i did get to meet him in the brief period when he was living an apt w a caregiver, but he soon returned to the va hospital in portland.
he got married while there, and his wife louise was at his side every day thereafter.
i think she was a sweetheart from his past but i never did find out.
als has been determined to be a service related disability, so he was able to get good care.
he was an amazing person, poet, musician and friend.
he was also a handsome devil.
i miss him and think of him often, but esp today.
