Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 21st August, 2021)
Davy Boy Smith
Photo: Mick Byrne (Panasonic DMC-TZ100)
Some very ornate headstones. Was it compulsory to have them all in this style?
He was a relative of a friend of mine. I remember seeing photos of him in The Wigan Observer during his heyday as a wrestler....a good-looking young man. How sad that he was taken so young.
Never heard of this lad so I looked him up.
Film on ch 4 at 9pm all about a wrestling family.
Didn't there used to be a wrestling commentator called Kent Walton in the sixties?
There certainly was Irene. Saturday afternoon. Billy Two Rivers, Mick McManus, Jackie Pallo, Bert Royal and Vic Faulkner etc.
Davey Smith spent a lot of his time here in Calgary.
Well I thought this photo would have deserved at least one poem. or maybe a prayer.
O God, Creator and Redeemer
Of all Your faithful people
Grant to the souls of all our faithful departed
Your mercy, light and peace
Lord, we pray that those we love
Who have gone before us in faith
May know Your forgiveness for their sins
And the blessings of everlasting life
In the company with the Virgin Mary
And all the angels and saints in ancient Heaven
RIP Davy Boy
Surprised to see this one. It is actually to the left of my husband.'s.
