By his friends and relatives
Stephen Brown of Australia, was an amazing intellect that helped with immense projects with his great wisdom and kindness. He had no idea how many times he solved real world problems in far away places simply with his soft touching words. Stephen’s brother spread his ashes on April 5, 2023.
Stephen spent his final resting days at the Wedgetail Retreat. He was very grateful that so many loving friends had taken him to their homes and drove him around but he knew that as his condition progressed he would need a bit more medical support and he did not want to be a burden to any of his friends and relatives.

Stephen strongly urged me to proceed with his page because he said that his close, friends and relatives that lived near him might feel too sad or perhaps have differing ideas.
Then he made it a point to instruct me to ask all his friends and relatives to share pictures of him with us so that we could post them on his page. He was not confused or undecided. He was as clear as a bell on this point. He said, “Ruthie, you see to it.”
He did not want me to set up a page for him in a religious obituary section online or on a website that would take his page down when people stopped visiting. Stephen wanted his own page on a news/blog site where his page would never be taken down. He chose SNN.BZ because he knew it was originally SyndicatedNews and existed before the Internet (the web debuted January 1, 1983).
I told Stephen about the origins of SyndicatedNews (debuted on May 11, 1978). Stephen said, I want to be on SyndicatedNews “Where my page won’t be taken down so that my friends can visit me from time to time. I want my friends and relatives to have a page about me that they can count on.”
One of the most valuable things that Stephen brought to my life was that he watched programs with me online. It was interesting for us both because he lived in Australia and I live in the United States so we were both influenced by our nationalities, the laws from each of our countries and other factors that are not always apparent.
From time to time, I had the opportunity to re-broadcast programs produced on specific websites or YouTube that we did not own. By obtaining written permission, we chose the programs I would show by watching the entire broadcast “before” we rebroadcast them on SNN.BZ.
Stephen and I watched a YouTube broadcast called “The Behavior Panel” produced by four extremely intelligent and well educated former military interrogators. I loved the show and Stephen grew to love it as well and we enjoyed watching the episodes together.
We both learned a great deal about people and their behaviors and we both used what we learned from watching the show in our respective lives.
Stephen suggested that it would help each of us in our personal lives if we watched the show and studied the skills related to internal dialogues, conversational deviations, and the skills of deception and subliminal behavior.
He was so right and I will forever be grateful for his recommendation that I should bring that show onto SNN.BZ. He chose not to tell anyone that he was studying the skills being taught by the people on the Behavioral Panel along with me but he told me that it helped him personally all the time.

The last show Stephen and I watched together was related to New York’s Governor Cuomo’s resignation and his brother Chris Cuomo’s interrogation. It was interesting because the former Governor was accused of sexually abusive behavior towards his staff and his brother Chris Cuomo (a CNN anchor) used his access to investigators from CNN to dig up dirt against his brother’s victims.
Stephen was quite a character… he once told me that he was in a hospital scheming with local friends (Cherie and Vasiliki) to “break him out” of the hospital (like breaking out of jail).
He once told his Florida and New York friends that his friend Karen had brought him to her beautiful sun-filled home and like the poet he tended to be… he described the experience as “The sun floods in through the window and envelopes me like a blanket…” Little did we know that she had prepared the room to enable him to sunbathe in the nude.
We had quite the laugh over that event (and the two jail/hospital “break out” gals that saved him). One of his friends, a nurse, told him that he was entitled to get a second opinion (which the doctor did not appreciate). The entire episode brought a smile to my face to know he was loved by so many.
An NLP master practitioner is a level of training in NLP, a study of behavioral psychology that models a person’s thought process. NLP master practitioners have integrated the basics more deeply, developed their own application of techniques, and learned more from their clients. They also embody the driving principles that underpin NLP and understand deeply advanced NLP patterning. NLP master practitioner training is an advanced and comprehensive course that consists of two modules of six days each.
Stephen passed away at the same place. Wedgetail retreat. ; 12 Wedgetail Ct, Dulguigan NSW 2484.
My Dearest Stephen, you gave us Americans (here at GHR.Network), great logic and wisdom when you helped us aid and support Australians we had met via BCR. You were a shining beacon at such a tense, sad time. Your empathy and kind qualities gave me strong, successful guidance which helped me build friendships with many Australians whom remain my close friends today (thanks to you). I have always told you how grateful I have always been to you for that guidance. Again, my heartfelt gratitude for your wise advice. I realize you told me you were not a religious man and I respect that of course… But at this time, I carry your name in my prayers to the God I believe in and commend your soul to the Lord because I am not “woke” and neither are you. You may leave us soon but you remain in my heart you dear man. You remain in my heart and your name goes from my lips to God’s ears. May God bless you as you go to His arms. You always let me pray with you when we asked God to keep you safe. Instead, the Lord has chosen to take you home with Him. We here in the US will always love and remember you fondly. Go home my brother, go on home to your reward, which you well earned. I love you buddy.
