Sid was a friend from the moment I met him. His enthusiasm was contagious and his desire to help was appreciated beyond words. Sid and I (and Helaine) had many, many candid conversations asI tried to be a sponge and absorb as much knowledge as possible because Sid was a true genius. The fact that Sid believed in our organization and in what I was doing was an incredible honor. I looked forward to meeting, and in the last year, speaking with Sid any chance I could. His wealth of knowledge did not go unnoticed and I am forever grateful for the limited time I knew him. His incredible personality, spunk, and passion will be missed by all. May Sid’s memory forever be for a Blessing.
