Children's author Beverly Cleary, creator of Ramona Quimby, dies at age 104

I didn’t start out writing to give children hope, but I’m glad some of them found it.”   —   Beverly Cleary

(I think hope is one of those foundational things that all children need, in order to grow up to be happy and productive adults.  The lack of hope leads to terrible things such as addiction, abuse, and lives of crime.  Always give your kids a reason to hope!  We welcome Ms. Cleary to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Posthumously unfortunately, as she passed just a little over a month ago.  Thank you, Ms. Cleary, for setting a great example for some of today’s writers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
