As we grew up and music was very central to the process those early years browsing records in the shop, later the soul nights! So sad to hear of your demise. But I do hope that your family can gain great solace from the fact that you were very popular as a person, and a good friend to many. You will be sadly missed across generations.I am glad we met!
