1917 - 1998

1 Corinthians 13:13
"And now abide Faith, Hope, Love,
these three; but the greatest of these is Love."

Cliffie was a musical ambassador of Faith, Hope and Love. His giant gentle heart had an endless capacity to love!

How he loved to encourage aspiring writers, artists and everyone he met to "let their light shine!" How he loved to open up "windows of dreams" to give them a glimpse of what they possibly could be. How he loved to say, "God gave you a gift and what you do with it is your gift to God!"

He once said, "Oh, how I love life! I just love it!" Oh, how we loved you, Cliffie! You were simply the best! A million thank you's for sharing your talent and love with us. Your infectious laughter will always echo in our hearts and memories.

As you wrote in your prophetic poem, you're "just around the corner!" Until we meet again, we'll applaud your contributions and humanitarianism with a standing ovation and a 21-Gun Salute!


"I'll Be Just Around the Corner"

By Cliffie Stone (1997)

I now know there comes a time in every person's life
when they have to move on…
But I'll be just around the corner.

I now know what a long run my life's show has been.
And even though my show is a hit, it will eventually close.
The marquee will be dark, the seats empty…
But I'll be just around the corner!

I don't intend to go far…the great producer has me
booked beyond the stars…there's always another stage
and a place where someone will remember me
and the hit that I once was…
So I'll be just around the corner!
