The above-noted post refers, in turn, to a post that is entitled:
I’m pleased to say to say that Iris Church, one of Graeme Decarie’s students at Concordia University, where Graeme ended up after he decided to drop out of teaching History at Malcolm Campbell High School in Montreal, in order to pursue a PhD in History, has written a great comment. The comment is below, and the reason I have written the post, which you are now reading, is because I would like to bring your attention to her comment.
Iris Church comments:
Graeme (or, as your former student at Concordia, perhaps I should say Professor), I am always amazed at the coincidences and linkages that pop up in life. I was idly browsing Marlborough Golf Club, when I saw your name, and was surprised to learn you had caddied there. My sister-in-law worked there for one summer when she first came to Canada from England, as the Club secretary I believe. She lived in at the Club house, and was able to take golf lessons which she continued throughout her life. She was Joyce Church, now in her nineties and living in Vero Beach. I think she would have been at the Club before you, in the mid-fifties, so I doubt that your paths crossed. But imagine if you, my future professor, had met my sister-in-law, long before I had any idea I’d be going to university. By the way, I graduated in November 2013 at the age of 84, with a B.A. In English, with honours.
