I remember going to Flint to visit Grandma & Grandpa Cody and on one occasion staying with Uncle Denny, Aunt Carol & Cortney. We went to the drive- in and the next day he took me to a stock car race. He also took me on a tour of the Genesee County Jail. I believe I was 10. He also drove down to Detroit to sell us a vaccume that we used even when we moved to Colorado. I enjoyed all the times we shared. Our prayers are with Aunt Carol, Cortney and family.
