Well time rolls on, I am sorry to see the passing of Sterling Moss, he was one of my heros as a kid. Tells you how old I am. I am sorry to say I don't have a Good Companion in my collection which would have actted as a touchstone for the memory.

Thanks, Robert, be well and keep up your wonderful work.
