Support for Cliff's Wife

We created this open donation for Tania, Clifford's wife. Her funds have been cut off until proper paperwork is filed and she gets approved. Until then, she doesn't have much to get by with. We also are getting a headstone and plot from the VA but have to pay for the ceremony and other additional items for his memorial. The VA covered his cremation and provides a small burial allowance, but nowhere near enough to work with. We also would like to get his backyard fixed up and make a nice additional celebration for him in the spring. Tania needs a lot of support until she can get things figured out as well as her children who have sacrificed work and time to be by her side through this difficult time. We appreciate all the support we have received so far with childcare, paperwork and meals. Everything helps and means so much to us. Thank you everyone and bless your hearts, Cliff has an amazing tribe of friends and family. Tania and Cliff have been married for 21 years. Cliff became 100 percent disabled after serving the Navy during the Vietnam War . He spent his lifetime fighting his service connected illness, Multiple Sclerosis. After spending his last few years of life at the Community Living Center under the unbelievably amazing care of the VA staff, Cliff peacefully left this world on February 13th. He has hundreds of staff throughout the VA that love him and he touched many lives with his kind and caring heart. He will be greatly missed by friends and family and nothing can ever replace what he put in our hearts. Clifford has 2 sons Benji and Joey and 2 step daughters Sumiko and Kiyomi, along with many grandchildren whom he absolutely took pride in. May he rest in peace and run the fields of heaven with Joseph.
