Cliff Chumley was a special friend for many years! He was the quiet, humble servant. He will forever hold a special place in my heart because he always took time to "make over' and tease with Beverly. He made her feel special. There are other precious memories that I will carry in my heart. He has such a precious family and I know the void is going to be so deep. I pray for God's peace and comfort for them. We will see him again and I just believe that he gave Beverly a special hug when he made it home!!!! Jeannie Stump Guill
