An Artscroll Shas with a history - A Siyum made by a husband and wife

I recently acquired an Artscroll Hebrew-English Shas from an elderly man whose wife has just passed on. He related to me, how he and his wife completed the Shas together with the aid of an Artscroll and now that his wife is no longer with him, he decided to sell his second set, leaving himself with one complete set for himself.
I sold the set to a local customer who related how decades ago, he participated in a Siyum Hashas made by a different couple, completed using a Soncino Translation of the Talmud, he recalled that Rav Dovid Cohen from Gvul Yaavetz attended and gave a speech at this siyum.
