  4. I have a severe hearing loss and can only hear low pitch voice. My father happened to encounter Efrem Zimbalist, jnr at Milton Club House in 1980 and informed Efrem Zimbalist, jnr. that I, Susan, was a fan of yours. At that time my father had my Dental card in his pocket and ask Efrem to sign it. How I yearn to meet you, Mr Byrnes. Unfortunately, this won’t ever happen. Your fan then, now and always. Susan MacDonald
