Flint Expatriate Bill Boles describes his romance with Mary Jane Belfie, which began in Flint before being "briefly" interrupted:
The attached photo shows me and my high school sweetheart, Mary Jane Belfie, in June, 1948 in front of the old Vogue store. Part of the brass sign can be seen on the right. This was graduation week. Mary Jane graduated from Northern and I from Central. We enjoyed two proms together and after a few years apart I was able to locate her in 2005. We married in 2006. She is still the same sweet girl she was in 1947 when we met.
