Talk about life imitating art………………. you could almost take this one from “The Notebook!”

A man who died on the way to his late wife’s wake was buried in a plot beside her on Wednesday, after a dual funeral service that capped a 66-year marriage, their daughter said on Thursday.
Norman Hendrickson, 94, a retired assistant postmaster in an Albany suburb, stopped breathing in the limousine on the way to a wake on Saturday for his late wife Gwen, who died earlier this month after suffering for years from Parkinson’s Disease, daughter Norma said.
Funeral home staffers laid Hendrickson in a casket and placed him beside an urn containing his wife’s remains in a viewing room, while daughter Merrilyne posted a light-hearted sign for arriving mourners: “Surprise – it’s a Double-Header – Norman and Gwen Hendrickson – February 16, 2013.”

Now, a look ahead to the Oscar’s tomorrow night!

The Canadian former ambassador to Iran who protected Americans at great  personal risk during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis says it will reflect poorly on  Ben Affleck if he doesn’t say a few words about Canada’s role if the director’s  film “Argo” wins the Oscar for best picture Sunday.
But Ken Taylor — who said he feels slighted by the movie because it makes  Canada look like a meek observer to CIA heroics in the rescue of six U.S.  citizens caught in the crisis — is not expecting it.
“I would hope he would. If he doesn’t then it’s a further reflection,”  Taylor said. “But given the events of the last while I’m not necessarily  anticipating anything.”

Taylor kept the Americans hidden at the embassy in Tehran and facilitated  their escape by getting fake passports and plane tickets for them. He became a  hero in Canada and the United States after. The role he played in helping the  Americans to freedom was minimized in the film.
“In general it makes it seem like the Canadians were just along for the  ride. The Canadians were brave. Period,” Taylor said.
Affleck’s thriller is widely expected to win the best-picture trophy. Two  other high-profile best-picture nominees this year, Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark  Thirty” and Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” have also been criticized for their  portrayal of some factual issues.
Affleck said in a statement Friday night he thought his issue with Taylor  had been resolved.
“I admire Ken very much for his role in rescuing the six houseguests. I  consider him a hero. In light of my many conversations as well as a change to an  end card that Ken requested I am surprised that Ken continues to take issue with  the film,” he said in a statement. “I spoke to him recently when he asked me to  narrate a documentary he is prominently featured in and yet he didn’t mention  any lingering concerns. I agreed to do it and I look forward to seeing Ken at  the recording.”
Taylor noted that former U.S. President Jimmy Carter appeared on CNN on  Thursday night and said “90 per cent of the contributions to the ideas and the  consummation of the plan was Canadian,” but the film “gives almost full credit  to the American CIA.”
Carter also called “Argo” a complete distortion of what happened when he  accepted an honorary degree from Queen’s University in Canada in November.
“I saw the movie Argo recently and I was taken aback by its distortion of  what happened because almost everything that was heroic, or courageous or  innovative was done by Canada and not the United States,” Carter said.
Taylor said there would be no movie without the Canadians.
“We took the six in without being asked so it starts there,” Taylor said.  “And the fact that we got them out with some help from the CIA then that’s where  the story loses itself. I think Jimmy Carter has it about right, it was 90  percent Canada, 10 per cent the CIA.”
He said CIA agent Tony Mendez, played by Affleck in the film, was only in  Iran for a day and a half.
The movie also makes no mention of John Sheardown, a deputy at the Canadian  embassy who sheltered some of the Americans. Taylor said it was Sheardown who  took the first call and agreed right away to take the Americans in. Sheardown  recently died and his wife, Zena, called the movie disappointing.
Friends of Taylor were outraged last September when “Argo” debuted at the  Toronto International Film Festival. The original postscript of the movie said  that Taylor received 112 citations and awards for his work in freeing the  hostages and suggested Taylor didn’t deserve them because the movie ends with  the CIA deciding to let Canada have the credit for helping the Americans  escape
Taylor called the postscript lines “disgraceful and insulting” and said it  would have caused outrage in Canada if the lines were not changed. Affleck flew  Taylor to Los Angeles after the Toronto debut and allowed him to insert a  postscript that gave Canada some credit.
Taylor called it a good movie and said he’s not rooting against it, but said  it is far from accurate.
“He’s a good director. It’s got momentum. There’s nothing much right from  Day 1 I could do about the movie. I changed a line at the end because the  caption at the end was disgraceful. It’s like Tiananmen Square, you are sitting  in front of a big tank,” he said.
