My sincerest sympathy to all the family and friends of Cliff Davison. I had the pleasure of knowing him for just over a few years. I was basically a stranger, yet every time I saw him he extended a warm welcome into his home, shared witty stories and bits of wisdom, jokes that made me laugh out loud, gave me big warm hugs, and he "always had some mighty fine wine" which he gladly shared. He was one of the kindest souls I have known and he seemed to glow with so much pride and love in his heart for his wife and family when he spoke of you all. I am honored to have witnessed that and to have shared the few times I had. I like to believe that he is holding Mabel's hand now. Cheers to a life well done! May you rest in peace.

Our condolences to the Davison clan. Mabel and Cliff were two of our favorite people to visit whenever we were around Edwards. Enjoyed many a party with them, too. They raised a great family and showed what parenting should be. Sorry we cannot be there to share memories with all of you.
