Unknown Carroll county newspaper, May, 1969.
Midst the beautiful sunshine to us it’s a very sad day as we have two relatives now resting in Funeral Homes; both passed away the same day. Our dear cousin, Mr. Clifford Cole of Buena Vista, such a sweet person, a devoted husband, a kind father, and a good Christian man. A member of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church in Buena Vista for many years, yet he always met his love ones (sic) and friends with a kind word and a smile. Clifford has been in failing health for some time, but never complained and will be greatly missed by his four brothers, Orville, Leslie, Byron and Odell: nephews and nieces, close relatives and neighbors, and unnumbered friends.
To his devoted companion Ruth, and children and brothers, each of you have your great sympathy in your great loss.
