Awhile ago, Christopher gave me a treasure. For those who are Moody book readers, you’ll know of Grandma Clifton, the widow who lives near the Moodys. Much of the Moody books are based on real life, thus the “Not All Fiction” section in the back of each book. But, the “Not All Fiction” certainly doesn’t cover everything. The stories themselves are highly intertwined with things from our family’s lives. Anyway, Grandma Clifton wasn’t all fiction herself. Years ago, when we lived in the state of Washington, we knew Grandma Clifton. We visited her occasionally and helped her with projects. When we moved to Kansas, we kept in touch via letters, and she even came to visit us one time! The treasure I received was a letter Christopher found. Grandma Clifton never would have dreamed her name would live on through the Moody books!
