Personal Notes:
Uncle Clifford was Grandpa Alford John's brother. He loved to bake and always had something delicious to share when we visited. He had a beautiful garden and loved to dehydrate yummy fruit and he made the only fruit cake I ever actually enjoyed. He was a true gem of a man, kind to the core.
