Gosh, I am so sorry. I did not know that my cousin Sheldon passed away. His mother Hedwig and my Dad Harry were brother and sister. We lost touch after our parents died. I was the little cousin to Helen, Sheldon, Albert and Milton. I would love to meet you all someday. I live in Florida with my husband Howie. Growing up I loved Sheldon. We used to visit Aunt Hedwig and Uncle Ben quite often in Mass. Again, I am sorry to hear of his passing.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss. Shelly was always a kind, compassionate, and ethical gentleman. He was a wonderful mentor to me. It was my privilege to work with him.

Shelly loved and adored his family dearly and enjoyed talking about each one of them. He clearly loved being a grandfather.

I will miss our conversations and his invaluable advice. I will be praying for your family during this difficult time.

RIP my friend! God bless you always!

I'm grateful for all my wonderful memories of Shelly - the road trip to Steamboat Springs, the wedding, a movie and Chinese food in the good Jewish tradition of Christmas and especially being in the waiting room with him in anticipation of Porter's birth. His love for his family was wonderfully obvious. I will miss him. Love to all. Deb Grojean
