married and traveled to Flint on a Greyhound bus. He got a job at Buick,
division of General Motors, the day after arriving in Flint. He worked 120 days

homesick and returning to Missouri. They couldn’t make a living in
Missouri, so before the year was over they had moved back to Flint.

who worked with Rose. Rose and Clyde enjoy bowling and riding their
snowmobiles. Rose likes crossword puzzles and picture puzzles as a

store a lot of the garden produce in the freezer.
