Art and Sandy Hitchcock - Apr 14, 2018
Dear Darrell and Family, What a sad day it was yesterday to hear about Cliss. We wish we could be with you all on Monday to remember her. You will have our love and prayers. Cliss was a very special lady. Art has been talking about all of his memories over the years. In our visits to Ohio we always waited to come and sit at your kitchen table to talk and of course have a wonderful meal. We always felt so safe, comfortable and loved. Our love, Art and Sandy
