On Oct. 13th, 2012, Cliffy very suddenly and WAY TOO SOON left us all due to what is thought to have been an aortic tear/dissection or an aortic ulcer which led to the tear in his aorta, which very quickly led to his untimely death. Cliff had an absolute heart of gold and hands down- the best sense of humor! He was the most amazing friend, devoted son and brother, the person I loved with all my heart and above all, an AMAZING father. He is missed and loved every single day by so many people that he left behind.
My plan with this is to: 1) to do something...anything to honor CK 2) Show how grateful and blessed I personally was to have him in my life (and bust my bum to do so) and 3) Raise some money (hopefully LOTS!) to benefit "The John Ritter Foundation"; a foundation created after the untimely and sudden death of actor John Ritter in October 2003.
The foundations mission is to promote knowledge of aortic aneurysms and dissection and for the continual research and awareness to hopefully save more lives. The foundation was created to honor John's life, and I am running and fundraising to honor Cliff's.
