I met Sid via my wonderful aunt and uncle, Donna and Dale Hiveley. Although I only saw him a couple of times, I admired him because he didn’t seem to play the victim. He played the hand he was dealt with dignity and grace. My heart goes out to Joyce and to all Sid’s loved ones!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you,
