Honor the life of Jim Clifton by planting a memorial tree.
Planted in the area of greatest need


Jim and I went to the National Warplane Air Show, Geneseo, N.Y. about 20 years ago as two brothers in the Lord. Had a great time of fellowship together. My family extends our condolences to his family and all those who knew him. He loved his family, friends, his church and most of all his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
