    My prayers & thoughts for family of Clifton. Such a nice genuine presence he had about him. When working at Ponderosa I enjoyed pouring coffee and conversation with him. He reminded me of my late grandpa, Oscar Scott…with the southern love of Blue Grass music from the roots of Rose Hill, VA. May he rest in peace….my love to the family. Lisa Whiteman Martin, daughter of Don & Jerlene Scott Whiteman, granddaughter of Oscar & Mabel Cottrell Scott. God Bless.
