So sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Although I never met Sid I know he was a great man who contributed enormously to science, to art and to all who were close to him. You have so much to be proud of as you grieve, of course, but also celebrate his life.

Margaret, I am so sorry for your loss. Sid was always the image that came to mind whenever I heard the Shakespeare phrase, “Taken at the flood” living life to its fullest. I always liked and admired him.

I was supposed to read this at Sid’s funeral, but misplaced my notes.

I am so honored today to celebrate Sidney’s life.

He was kind, sincere, brilliant, and had more patience than anyone! To have been involved with his wonderful family for almost 43 years has enriched my life. The many people whose
limbs he saved, thank him too even though they never met face to face. I will miss him terribly, but will carry with me his genuine love of life and keep on one his many kind traditions of feeding the wild birds that he adored!
