To Sid’s family,
Wonderful ceremony. Recently, many of us had lunch with him at a Stephens realtor open house. 7 years ago, he sold my home to one of his clients and changed my life. I always looked forward to running into him. With his 3 daughters and 1 son we would compare notes to my 3 sons and 1 daughter. Great man!

Our family is deeply grateful for Sid’s patient, friendly and helpful manner as we found, purchased and moved into our home in Lawrence. We knew him only a short time but his kindness will be remembered always. May God bless you as you mourn his passing.

To Sid’s Family & Friends,

I had a nice visit at lunch with Sid last Thursday. I knew him as a Fraternity Brother, Realtor colleague and friend for many years. The gals in the office at Stephens said he was “their buddy”. I can’t think of a nicer compliment. He will be missed by all his DU “buddies” too. With Sympathy, John Esau, Kansas DU ’78
