Condolences to the family of Sheldon & Jean. Worked with Sheldon at Kirsch - very talented and always so accommodating. Only around Jean a couple times at Kirsch parties - and she was a fun lady! Sad, but sweet that they are still "together." May the Good Lord especially bless all their loved ones.

I'm so very sorry for the loss of both of your parents. They were such dear people. I've known Sheldon from Kirsch Co. and my husband, Gary, worked with him. Their home and yard on Wenzel St. were so beautiful with the many flowers and decorations. My thoughts and prayers are with you kids.
