Darlene and family. You are on my heart and mind. When I think of Sidney, I remember his kindness through personal interactions or when ordering a floral arrangement. His talent in handling flowers was exceptional. May the Lord bless with His presence during the upcoming weeks.

Whether a happy occasion or a sad occasion, Sidney used his God-given talent to make that occasion more beautiful. Rest in peace, my long-time friend.
God comfort and strengthen his family and friends.
