Hi Sami

Maybe because i'am not in Canada perhaps.
Dave.

Hi Dave,

I've copied the obituary and sent it to you as a PM. It was a very interesting read. Let me know if you receive it.

I also think the last name is Adams. Not sure about the first name, although it does look like the last letter is Ď y Ď

Well, his obituary in 2005 says that they had been married for 58 years. That would give them a marriage year of 1947. Iíll keep looking.

 I'm also caggy handed - In the 1950s my needlework teacher insisted that when I turned up a hem by hand, I had to turn the work upside down, so that the stitches looked the same as the rest of the girls in the class (they were all right-handed).

That reminds me - also from the 1950s - even though my primary school teachers didn't make me use my right hand, they did force me to turn my writing book on my desk to the same angle as the rest of the class. So that when the teacher looked down the rows everything was in perfect symmetry. As a result my writing was very oddly slanted/crabbed on the page and was never corrected until I was in much higher grades. Needless to say I used to get very low marks for penmanship  ::)
