Errol Milner Clifford 2006-2009

Errol Milner Clifford was born with a significant heart defect and a cognitive disability that prevented him from walking or talking. As we grieved the child we had anticipated, Errol’s full-bodied smile and irrepressible laugh turned our sorrow into joy, and taught us that many of the best things in life are unexpected. Inspired by Errol’s delightful spirit, friends, family, and neighbors rallied to support our family’s significant emotional, physical, and financial needs, through countless acts of selfless generosity. When Errol’s courageous heart finally failed him on December 23, 2009 we were left numb with grief. In these dark hours we listen hopefully for the echoes of Errol’s brilliant laugh. This blog is the story (starting from present and working back to Errol's birth) of the life and times of the amazing Errol Clifford.

Seeds of Love for Errol

Tomorrow, we return to the hospital for Errol's heart cath. We face tomorrow full of anxiety, trepidation, and sorrow, but we do not go into these hard times alone.  Seeds of Love for Errol is a community project that is a beacon of light for our family. We would be lost without our family and friends. They light our way. 

The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.
~John Greenleaf Whittier
