I met the Marshall’s as Caden’s kindergarten teacher and was impressed at how involved they were with Caden’s education and PTO. They were also neighbors and many times I would pass their home and see Cliff and Caden playing together in the front yard. I am so saddened to hear the news of Cliff’s passing. I know he will be missed greatly. My prayers and deepest sympathies to Deb, Caden and the family.
