Accident happened at the intersection of routes 89 and 250 at approximately 1p.m. Jeromesville Fire Department received the call at this time. Firemen pulled Dad out of the car and Cindy was underneath him, apparently alright. Fire Chief took her home with him. Mom got a call from Mansfield General Hospital at approximately 5:40p.m. to tell her of the accident. She called me right away saying something's wrong with Dad. I hung up the phone and ran out with Burl and Holly. We came back home for 5 minutes and then went to the hospital in Mansfield. We saw Dad. Poor Dad. His head and face so cut up, his eye purple and swollen shut. He could say yes and no. We got to the hospital around 8:p.m. It was awful to see him lying there so helpless, with his arms in wrist restraints. The hospital said that he had been taken to Ashland Hospital first where an IV had been started. Then, because Dad had told them he had brothers in Mansfield, they transferred him to Mansfield. We left the hospital and went to the State Highway Patrol. He told us that there was a 3 car collision caused by failing to make a stop on route 89. From here we went to Jeromesville to get Cindy. She seems fine, but scared. We got home around 11p.m. Holly spent the night with Nana.

The accident occurred while Clifton was going to Mansfield to put wreaths on his parents graves. He did not make it. The accident was his failure to stop and his dog, Cindy was uninjured. Clifton was known to his grandchildren as "Gampy" and Margaret was known to her grandchildren as "Nana".

Holly Banks Written on a paper bag and found among Clifton's momentos.

Down the distance separating
There's a mother waiting, waiting
Waiting while her life endures
Yearning for a loving letter which Shall make her hurt heart better
Is that mother yours?

Somewhere where the postman lingers
Are a mother's reaching fingers
Ever hoping to be thrilled
Fingers which have served and blessed you
And whose tender touch caressed you
Shall they not be filled?

Somewhere where the stars are gleaming
Theres a mother lies a dreaming
Of the hopes her days contain
And her mother face grows tender
At the message you shall send her
Is her dream in vain?

Past all waiting past all weeping
Somewhere theres a mother sleeping
Under God's eternal blue
And her last sigh spent it's thought on
One who seemed to have forgotten
Tell me, was it you?
