Wedding Day

Clyde and Gussie

The two childhood friends were married in 1994 after Clyde contacted her in California and encouraged her to come back just for a visit to her hometown.

The two had been friends, but never sweethearts, and both had been married to their first spouses for more than 50 years. Eventually the two were married, and Gussie joined Clyde in making her home in Spur.
