While vacationing here in Florida we learned of Sheldon's death.
He was a fine man possessing a wonderfully warm sense of humour.
He always struck us as a man of bedrock faith with a great devotion to Aileen.
Sheldon will be sadly missed by his fellow parishioners of Corpus Christi.
We send our love and prayers to Aileen and to his family for their great loss.
May he rest in peace.
