To all of the Lydiksen family,

Please accept our family's solemn condolences as you sustain the death of your Husband and Dad. Although I have never had the pleasure of meeting Cliff, Rosie spoke very kindly of him and loved him in her own special way. She shares her tears with all of you.

It has been several rough years for all of you, watching Cliff battle his illnesses. Please don't neglect your own emotional, physical, and spiritual health and remember that we are always here for you whenever you are in need.

Cliff - where would I begin? You and Jean were such a huge part of my life from the day we met I knew we would be best friends to the end - we worked together at AFF, were in your wedding and Jean and I had our first child around the same time the memories are endless - in the past years I know you were sick but you hung in for 10 years knowing how much love was around you from your wife and children, family and friends - may you Rest In Peace with no more pain and suffering knowing that all left behind will never forget your love your smile and your personality but most of all your laugh - till we meet again
