    I love you and miss you so much. Seems I’m in the most horrible nightmare and can’t wake up. I am trying so hard to be strong and make you so proud. I didn’t get to hug and kiss your cheek before you left me. I didn’t get to say goodbye. I feel so robbed and lost. Kiss and hug my little ones ,as well as Nanny, Pappy and Jesus.

    Sorry for your loss . Thought the world of Clifford Earl . Back in the day setting on his front porch laughing and having a good time…him calling the Beaver radio station making requests. One time Clifford ,David Darrow and I drove to Cordell Hull Dam on a Sunday and had a blast.On the way home he had his head out the window waving and saying hello to everyone between Carthage Tn. to Springfield. I respected him for his service to his country also. I’m having issues with my back at this time and probably will be unable to visit the funeral home. Heaven has gained a big ol’ Clifford Earl smile. God Bless and Prayers for the family.

Yes heaven did indeed receive a HUGE smiling “Daddy,” aka “Clifford Earl Cox!” My life is and has forever been changed. Hope you finally got better.In fact I found some tapes he had made shouting at the Beaver. LOL. God knows I miss that laugh, that smile, I miss him.
