Karen,

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. He sounds like he was truly a great inspiration and a wonderful companion. It is sad to hear that such an outstanding person is no longer among us. Please accept condolences on behalf of me and my family.

I would like to send my greatest sympathies to his daughter Karen and close friends. He was a fine gentleman and his weekly visits will dearly be missed here at CHS. He certainly was and will continue to be a big part of CHS's history. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Please accept my condolences on the passing of a fine gentleman. I joined CHS in 1964 and was not only impressed by Sid's enthusiasm for his work, but also the wry wit he displayed when discussing some of the foibles accompanying government service. I enjoyed some great conversations during our years of service.

Dear Karen,

My deepest sympathy.

I have so many pleasant memories of your dad I'll forever value his advice to always take a second look. This important life lesson I learned from him when we served on the condo board.

I'll be with you on Monday.

Sad time for all, we've lost a gentleman who put others and his work ahead of his personal needs. My sincere sympathies to the family.

My condolences to Sid's family. I meet Sid when CHS hired me in 1968. he was nice to all new "Pen dipper's" and when I meet him in the last years that I worked at CHS he always asked me to come back and help with the "History of CHS"
