Sad News

19 posts in this topic

It saddens me to inform all area Smart car owners that Alberta's husband Cliff passed away yesterday morning.

Cliff had been in long-term care for a while, and Alberta said his passing was very peaceful.

Dr Map was his club name, and he will be greatly missed at our monthly outings.

A memorial service will take place at a later time.  I'll post date and location for anyone wishing to attend.

FYI.... Alberta has tentatively set up a memorial gathering to remember and honour her husband Cliff.

It will be at The King Edward Pub in Ilderton on Thursday October 27th.

No time has been announced.

I'll post confirmation and time as soon as I know.

I wanted to thank Bill for posting this sad news.  I'd been meaning to do so, but with everything else, just didn't get to it.  Having gotten some major tasks off my list, here it goes.

 

As Bill noted, a memorial for Cliff will be on Oct. 27th, and it will be from 4 to 7 pm in the King Edward Pub in Ilderton where a lot of you have been, including not very long ago.  I'm hoping that I got the little post that I created attached since it doesn't seem to do a preview anymore.  Just in case it doesn't come through, here are a few other details:  there will be a buffet of hot and cold snacks (a variety of small things), each attendee will receive a ticket for one complimentary beverage (beer, wine, soft drink, coffee, tea, water) with other food and drinks available at the cash bar.  There will be an opportunity for talking about memories and mingling or via a podium and microphone.  Hopefully, we'll a slide show of photos of Cliff along with others, including our smart car friends.  Just let me know if you can attend by posting on here or jotting an email to me at:  awood@mun.ca

 

The past year was especially difficult and his loss has been deeply felt.  There is a memorial page on:  https://basicfunerals.ca/obituaries/clifford-harlow-wood/3678/

 

Thanks for your kind remarks and remembrances of Cliff.  I do hope that some of you will be able to attend.

It was gratifying to see the turnout to support Alberta and remember Cliff at his memorial celebration in Ilderton.

I counted at least 16 Smart people.  I know Alberta truly appreciated our presence.

Thank you all for your time and consideration.  I like to think Cliff would be very appreciative.

 

Side note..... I met a young man, the son of a member of my 'extended family' since 1965.

Turns out he's Cliff&Alberta's next door neighbor.  I lived very hard and fast with his dad and uncles.

Wow, what a small world !!
