    In 1970, home from Vietnam, with wife and kids, and no job,
    Sherwin took me under his wing, gave me a job, taught me, and
    we became lifelong friends. Ann and I offer our deepest sympathies to Rhoda and family. Our prayers are with you.

    Dear Rhoda, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Sherwin. The years have flown by and you have a family of three daughters and a grandchild. I am sure you all are suffering from this loss. I pray you will all be brought through this with the strength I know you have and what Sherwin would expect. You two were the greatest neighbors, and God Bless you all at this time.

    I’m so sorry to hear of Sherwin’s passing. It is rare to meet two people so down to earth, funny, and sincere. I always looked forward to seeing both of you, even if it was because of a medical issue. The world is a fair bit poorer for his passing. I know that you have great support and love to get you through this tough time. Always remember the great years that you both had together. I’ll miss him.
