Preacher Cliff, August 6, 2017

We would like all of you to know that Chapter D has a member under the weather Clifford Britton better known as (Preacher Cliff.)  Preacher Cliff has only one kidney, now had a unusually large kidney stone in his one kidney which they removed.  They saved the stone, so he would see just how large it was.  Preacher Cliff has spent his life helping other people in many different ways, he is always there in time of need.  He is also faithful in his ministry to nursing homes, visiting  people at home and in the hospital.  He has been a member of Chapter D for a great deal of years.  I guess you could say a pillow stone of our chapter and we all love him, now it has come his time for well wishes and words of encouragement.  Please keep Preacher Cliff in our hearts and prayers. Clifford Britton, 3295 Sweet Home Road, Williamston, N C 27892. He is there for all of us. Thanks for taking the time to care,  Betty, Chapter D
