  1. I was very sorry to hear about your loss. I was very young when I knew Sheldon so I don’t remember much, but he always seemed to me as a man who enjoyed life. What i remember most from him was a couple of times when he drove myself and my sister to his Mother’s home (my Grandma), I thought he was very cool. I think I was 7 at the time. Please accept I and my families condolences in this time of grieving.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I was expecting to have Sheldon back as my office mate this year…I will miss him alot. He was so easy to get along with and we shared a love for the Habs. Our family will keep you in our prayers.

  3. It’s with sadness that I recently learnt of Sheldon’s passing. He was such a great guy – one who would always give advice or a second opinion or just to lend an ear. He was a mentor, teacher and a good guy to be around. During our tenure at the NSLC, he taught me many skills that I continue to use to this day. I am so sorry for your loss!
