Today I accompanied my mother to a class at the Ottawa Heart Institute, as she has just had open heart surgery as will soon be going home. In the class, I met Milfred Harper, also a heart patient. He and his brother, Gary, attended S.S. No. 10 Oxford. He and I were both surprised to learn his former music teacher, Miss Jean Joyner, is featured in my book on page 11. He also fondly remembered another teacher, Miss Bessie Higgins.
