I removed your {puff} tag from Stanley Dance[edit]

Mr. Dance was the father of a friend, and I spent a number of hours in the late 1960's refining my knowledge of 1920's jazz in his study. He had a record-collection that I (presently) estimate at more than 6,000 LP discs, and was willing to spend time on a teen-aged Eddie Lang fan.

I essentially re-wrote the article as a linear biography, and added an infobox & referencing. I killed the tag, but felt you'd like to know...

Hope you like the newly-done article!

Hope you are well[edit]

Hello, Rothorpe – I notice you have not edited since 9 September. I hope you are well and perhaps traveling with no internet access. I look forward to your return.  – Corinne (talk) 01:01, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Rothorpe - concern![edit]

@Gerda Arendt: This user suffers from cancer and has not been active on Wikipedia since September 2017. Does anybody know how he might be? User:Corinne expressed concern in October last year (see post above) and unfortunately she passed away in March of this year. William Harris • (talk) • 11:30, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for your post William Harris. I have been worried as well. Rothorpe and Corinne worked so well together. The 'pedia is a lesser place without their presence. MarnetteD|Talk 17:29, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
I certainly agree -- where is Ro? I have emailed him a couple of times recently and got no response. Hayford Peirce (talk) 01:49, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
I had an email recently from Cassianto expressing similar concern about Rothorpe, which I share. I greatly hope Rothorpe's absence does not signify the worst. Tim riley talk 20:42, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
