So sorry for the loss of a great uncle. Uncle Sid and Aunt Mary did many things to help out my family when I was growing up. We never forget when others are there for us. May he rest in peace.
With much love Tava (Irene) and Dan Johnson.

Dearest Toby and Tom,
With deepest sympathy. Words can’t wipe away your tears. Hugs won’t ease your pain. But hold on to your memories. Forever they’ll remain. Its hard to forget someone whom gave us all so much to remember! From his expert carpeting skills, his famous bologna sandwiches, to being the man on MSU campus Uncle Sid was by far the best uncle anyone could ever wish for! He will be forevermore etched in my, Sons', Jonathan and Kiyana's memories as we know those we love don’t go away, they live in our hearts and minds and walk beside us each and everyday.
