After I have posted Befriending Your Neighbours in August 2007, I had an Elizabeth Marks who posted the following comments:
Something really did crop up. As luck would have it or as an act of God a certain Simon Melen responded by sending me the following email wich I reproduce wholly here:
Last year you wrote an artlicle on “befriending your neighbours”. You had a response from Elizabeth Marks, who said that her grandfather, Gordon Tanner, had been a rubber planter on North Labis Estate. Do you know who Elizabeth Marks is, or how I could get in touch with her? My grandfather was once great friends with Gordon Tanner’s wife and I have a multitude of letters between the two of them. I am sure Elizabeth Marks would be interested.
If you can’t help, I am sorry for troubling you.

Since Elizabeth is unknown to me and she didn't leave any address email or otherwise, I couldn't help him much other than promising to do my best as implied by me reply to his email.
I remember that comment from Elizabeth Marks. I will post this
communication of yours and hopefully she will revisit my site and read
it. I presume she was disappointed as I wasn't able to give a
favourable answer back then but with your response, things are
definitely turning for the better.
I will do whatever to get you connected.

So if you, Elizabeth Marks or those who knows about Elizabeth Marks is reading this post, please respond by sending an emal to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward it to Simon Melen.
Sometimes miracles do happen. I believe one will happen soon.
