Schilling Family, I am saddened to hear of Cliff’s passing. Favorite memory: he was my high school girl’s track coach in Gresham; and senior season he gave me just the right encouragement to go and earn a medal in the long jump at the State Track meet in North Platte! I have always remembered his encouraging words and used them with my own students all these years since(41). Praying for the Peace of God to comfort you at this time. Melanie (Romohr) Honegger
