I have found a thread showing William Lloyd Hopkins died in London Ontario and was buried July 19, 2004. There is a thread showing there was an obituary in the London free press that date. Does this mean at one time an obit was posted in its entirety at one time? Does anyone know if London free press in Ontario has old copies if newspapers in digital or microfilm format either at newspapers or in library?
