  1. I did not know Francis Cannaday directly. We only share our last names. But I did discover one of his scientific paper from long ago for research on my own paper. His paper was titled Modulus of Elasticity of a Rock Determined by Four Methods, 1964: i Cited his paper in mine. I was trying to find him to let him know.

    Rest in peace friend I never had.
