One Comment on “Clifton Eugene Bates”

  1. We are deeply sorry to hear about Mr Bates passing away. It’s heartbreaking losing those whom we love. We hope the family can find comfort in the Bible’s promise of a resurrection and the hope of seeing our loved ones again, Acts 24:15. May Jehovah the God of tender mercies comfort the family during this most difficult time. 2nd Corinthians 1:3,4.
