I did not have the opportunity to know Clifford in my adult life but some 70 years ago I had the great fortune to live next door to Hubert and Mertie Fox on Commonwealth Ave. Ext.(now Pittstown Road). I cannot remember the actual time but have the stories told to me by my Mother and Grandmother(Helen Lundy Leonard and Farah Booher Lundy). As a toddler my Mother had great difficulty keeping me from the Fox house. Mertie was my third Grandmother and Clifford, my adoptive Uncle. Always available and ready to shower me with attention, the Fox family. Please accept my sincere condolences.
