    Neil, Lisa, and Jonathan-Please accept our sincerest condolences over the loss of your father. We certainly enjoyed the years being Sid’s neighbor. He was always up for a chat and was so proud of his kids and grandkids. He would often show us family photos and update us on milestones in the children’s lives. Always kind and always with a sense of humor. You all are in our thoughts. Holly, John, and Sidra Bennett.

    Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of your wonderful father. Sidney was a delight to spend time with, his intellect and ability to enjoy everyone he met was beautiful. He was deeply loved by his brother, Marvin, and his family. I will, of course, attend the virtual funeral and I send my love to you and yours. Frances Gordon

    I was so very sorry to hear of Sid’s passing, but I am comforted that he is now at peace in eternal rest. My condolences to Neil, Lisa, Jonathan and their families, as well as family members and dear friends of Sid and Linda Gordon—who were like second parents to me.
