  • Clifford although I never got to meet you, I'm so grateful that for the sake of future generations of our family you offered yourself for service. As a result, we are able to live in a country unsullied by war. Our family remembers with gratitude your supreme sacrifice. We know through our faith that one day we will be united with you, your parents and siblings. We are so proud of you. RIP. Your loving nephew, Donald Coster and family.
