I am so sorry for your loss. Losing our loved ones is never easy but may the love of people that surrounds you soften your grief. May you continue to throw all your burden on to God because He cares for you.

Thank you for your inventions.

MY CONDOLENCES TO MR. SHERMAN POPPEN'S FAMILY, I AM SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF YOUR LOVED ONE, MAY THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT AND YOUR FOND MEMORIES GIVE YOU PEACE.

Our deepest condolences to the family of Sherman. We all truly benefit from his invention. We pray that God continues to strengthen and comfort you all during this extremely difficult time.

Fond memories will live on in lots of hearts along with his family of skiers. May God 's spirit comfort the family. Peace.

Fondly I recall Sherm as a fellow NROTC classmate for four years at Northwestern University. He was a fun guy we all enjoyed knowing, especially on US Navy cruises each summer. We lost touch after commissioning but I'm thrilled to learn of his family's successful snowboard experience. Well done Sherm!

I am very sorry for your loss. I do hope you find comfort in the wonderful memories you have with Sherman. May you strengthen you hope and find comfort as you read our Heavenly Fathers letter to us, the Bible.

Dear Poppen Family:

I am sorry for your loss.

Rest in Peace
