Uncle Sidney was a very kind soul, compassionate and reflected the love of his Savior Jesus. He had an energy and enthusiasm about him that was contagious.
We miss him and that great smile that shined from within.
We are praying for you Aunt Betty and for the rest of the family. May you all find God's strength through this time and find God's peace.
