I heard today that one of our valued proof listeners died in March. Mim was DPL for over 250 projects and was always a pleasure to work with over the 7 years she was active here. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will remember her help.

Our objective is to make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the internet. - Hugh McGuire.

I'm very saddened to hear this. She was DPL for me on many of my earlier solos, and was always a true joy to work with.
She will be missed by many, I am sure. :(

It's always sad to hear of the passing of another LV stalwart.

Mim PLed my recording of the Fitzgerald version of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam way back in 2011.
