I have known Sid mostly through his companionship and working in partnership with Helaine. I can easily picture both walking down the halls in the office together conferring. His energy was always on high and his greetings filled. But perhaps one of my best memories is that he and Helaine always waited for each other–not because they could but because they wanted to. The care they showed for one another on a daily basis was inspiring and a model for all of us to love each other much every day.

And to you dear Helaine- I am so sorry for this loss. Thank you and your family for helping to put this marvelous memorial video about Sid together–I caught some great photos of you in there as well Helaine-love the dancing dip and your movie star wedding photo! The twinkles in your eyes and springs in your steps in the pictures really make for an enduring and amazing New York story.

Thinking of you and looking forward to seeing you again.

With much affection,

Urvashi Rangan
