Doctor Addie would come out in any weather to see people in their homes. He would tend to the sick, do the chores and cook their dinner.
The story behind the story:
My mother grew up on a fruit farm in Beamsville, Ontario and Dr. Addie birthed her. When he made a house call he did everything that could be done to ensure that his patients would recover from what ailed them. He was a well loved doctor and a fixture in the community for many years.
