In Honor Of Capt Richard Cliff

To the family of Richard as the first year of his deployment to heaven comes up on 9/29/09
I want you to know that he will be remembered forever. God has a way of being there for us
and putting people in place to help with this journey we travel called "grief". It's a hard road
and I know it all too well. My heart, thoughts and prayers have been with you for almost one
year now and I will continue to always be here for your family.

May God continue to give you and your family strength each day. Don't let others tell you that
you should be "over it" because as parents we never recover from the death of a child. We
learn each day how to live and move forward a little at a time but that saying "time heals all
wounds", is just that a saying. The only thing time ever does is move on.

Remembering Richard always

I worked with Cpt. Cliff when he was the XO at attack
company 5/20 in Mosul - Ninawa
He was a great person everybody liked Cpt. Cliff including the
citizens of Mosul.
The military folks at the IRAQI Triple Dose Battalion, I was there when
he was conducting his intense PT in the morning and as usual I tease
him by making that comment that our platoon know it very well. I miss
you Captain.

God help us all, God help Tracy and your three children and your
parents too, you are not forgotten and very close to my heart, I am hearten
pritty bad for you.

your IRAQI iterpreter
