    I'm so sorry to hear about your lost. Sid was a very enjoyable person to work with. I work with Sid at the Coppell Service Center in Transportation. My prayers are with the entire family for strength.

    Sorry for your loss of "Pop" and husband. We were saddened also to hear he had been so ill. Sid was an important part of our family for many years. He and Ed were inseparable in the early 60's and 70's; and our daughter whom he called "PJ" could hardly wait to see her "Uncle Sid"--best playmate and attention giver ever! We traveled together for work and vacations and Sid ultimately came to live with us for a while. My favorite memory was during that time. I was so tired after a day at school and came home to find Sid had been busy cleaning all day and just finished mopping the kitchen. What a blessing for a tired working mom! There are many great memories from our travels thru the years that I could write a book, but will be content to keep them in my heart. Prayers for all of you as you cope with this tremendous loss. I know you all gave him much pleasure during your time with him. Sincerely, Pat
