Sad to hear of Clifford's death. I listened to his music in the seventies but only bought a cd of his just recently. He was certainly a great singer songwriter.

I am so sorry to hear about the death of Cliff, his music has brought me much pleasure over the last 18 years since I first discovered him and I have managed to collect everything he has recorded, as far as I know.

A great loss, I remember well the Far Forest days of Cliff Ward and the Cruiser's, and "Home thoughts" is very special to me and my wife Angie.

I was informed of Clifford's death out of the blue whilst at work the other day. Although I had not purchased a Clifford T Ward record since Home Thoughts in the seventies, the news genuinely saddened me. The songs Gaye and Home Thoughts From Abroad were, and still are, two of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. It is undoubtedly my loss that I chose not to listen to his other works. I love music to this day and I try to keep up with what's going on at the moment. Amidst the likes of The Strokes, The White Stripes and others of that ilk which I find myself listening to these days, I regularly return to Gaye and Home Thoughts From Abroad and they move me as much today as they ever did. I think I will investigate further as I suspect I have been missing out all these years. Rest in peace Clifford.

What a beautifully clear websight dedicated to a true artist. It was with a huge sadness that I listened to Terry Wogan's anouncement on Wednesday. I shed several tears on my way to work that morning. Clifford will be missed by many fans of his music and those who knew him personally. (He taught my brother, when a student, at Bewdley High School) Condolences to his family and friends.

Thankyou Cliff for the great songs.

On Sun Dec 23 20:30:42 GMT 2001, Derek Robinson (England from said:

It is with a heavy heart that I write this note of condolence to the family of Clifford. His music has been a part of my life and will always be so. I was lucky enough to meet a man I so admire at the last get together, so in my opinion, fate took a hand. I hope that his wife, children and grandchildren will always know that he was a great songwriter and that his lyrics are beyond compare. He has given me joy, helped in times of sadness and helped me see clearly when all there was mist before my eyes. If he has done this for me, then I guess he has done this and more for many others. His legacy is forever.

the good die young............

Thank you Clifford.

My Best wishes to you all

Derek Robinson

Worcester's hills it's wooded vales,
The severns dreamy shore,
Belonged to you, and you to them,
A land that loved the son she bore,

In song you praised the poets work,
Men, inspired by the land they knew,
You understood and taught their words,
With a freshness, as a morning dew,

The accent that you gained in youth,
Thankfuly never left your side,
Reflected in the songs you wrote,
and captured in each word, with pride,

A worcestershire man, born and bred,
A man of faith, of love, integrity,
Yet of the praise, so well deserved,
Would shrug and smile, "its not for me",

I'd thank you for your friendship Cliff,
The laughs we had though times were tough,
What did I gain, should I be asked,
To be called your friend, reward enough.
