- The sentence: 'my brother is dead' can't say. It is not intended that anyone should say it, for the order is wrong.
How it sounded sad from the tv host Ole Stephensens four year older brother, Erik Stephensen, in front of the Holte Church Friday afternoon, where he had just taken leave of his well-known, younger brother.
- So it is a terrible thing, but of course the worst for his children and his wife. But it is to big need for all of us, together, for man can not do without any in a world, he added.

Erik Stephensen, who, like his brother, a journalist, had been working with Ole for many years, and the two brethren talked together every day.
Therefore, it was also obvious that Erik Stephensen was to take his leave with his brother in the church, where he delivered a moving speech.
It was quite terrible! It is very difficult, he pitched solid over for Extra Magazine.
- Just as soon as the organ desk, you can feel that you have excitement they could hope in the head, so it is difficult to keep them in check. But I did what I could, and then people live with that voice shook, he said of the emotional moment.
And it was not an option not to talk?
- Yes, it was, and I had several reserves who were ready to jump in instead of me, if it had to be. But I pushed myself, he pitched fast.
