I just received the news that my dear older brother Stan has died. He’d been ill for a while but it still came as a shock. Though we hadn’t seen each other in the flesh for many years, (we did Skype for a while), we were close. Stan played a major role in my becoming what I am, a sound recorder. When I was 11, he came home from sea with a huge Grundig tape recorder. It was that, that set me on my life’s path.

Thank you, Stan. I love you and will lookout for you in heaven when I get there.
