The Abbotsford Times describes the falls, in Sumas Mountain's Bassani Park, as being "in a small, steep gully lush with ferns and moss, and feature a small cave and what Devon referred to as a Buddha rock."
Clifford's mother Edna had written a heartfelt letter to the Abbotsford's Park, Recreation and Culture board, describing the spot as "a little oasis" and "his special place to go as he grew up in Abbotsford. Now it's a special place for us to go and for the people that loved him."
"Our son was unique and special, but everybody's child is special. But I thought it was important. There aren't many things in Abbotsford named after artists. It's fitting a beautiful piece of nature is named after an artist," her letter continued.
"Like Devon, this place is unique in its simplicity and beauty...The waterfall deserves a name. In some strange way, the thought of it waiting to be named after someone as special as Devon has given us small hope of attaching some meaning to Devon's death, and connecting his legacy to a place of wonder in the community that he loved, as was loved in."
