Dear John,

I checked the on line version, and the 1995 printed version and they both list his widow as Martha, and it matches up with the obituary. The online version also lists Burton Cann in the Class of 1978, but without an address.

I also note that his son in also Burton. So in light of that I would now go with 1978.

POSITRACTION: Watch Golden Retriever Lead Ambulance



Watch Golden Retriever Lead Ambulance Through a Maze of Alleyways to Save His Owner
By Good News Network – Jan 23, 2019
*** begin quote ***

Paramedics may have had a very difficult time locating their patient if it had not been for a devoted Golden retriever who was waiting to show them the way to its owner.

The Chinese emergency crew had received a call about a garbage man who had collapsed in a residential alleyway in Yuncheng, Shanxi Province.

As their ambulance rushed through the narrow alleyways, a Golden Retriever suddenly appeared in front of the vehicle.

Instead of simply moving out of the ambulance’s path, however, it started to lead them in the direction of its collapsed owner.

Dashcam footage shows the dog anxiously looking over its shoulder several times in order to make sure the paramedics are following it before the pup picks up speed and runs through the maze of alleyways.

Thanks to the dog’s clever hand in the rescue, paramedics were able to find the man and bring him to the hospital for treatment.

Still don’t believe in Guardian Angels or Divine Providence?
