Dear Marie and family,

You have been in our prayers as we grieve along with you. Sheldon was a true gentleman, full of compassion. We value your friendship and the quiet example Sheldon was for us and our family. God has blessed us and enriched our lives by having counted him a friend, and we look forward to that joyous day when we will share an eternity together in the new heavens and new earth that our Lord will prepare for us.
