    Dear Family, I use the word family because that is what Sidney became to me and my family so any family and friend of his, is that to me. While I never met him, over the last six years via a tool we call Facebook, Sidney became the big brother I should have had. He and I shared many laughs, conversations, phone calls and more laughs. He had an amazing ability to be HERE from over THERE and I am forever grateful for that. I won't pretend to know or have the perfect words for those who knew and loved Sid, but I will leave you with this... It's okay to cry but in those tears, also rejoice. Celebrating all that he was to each of you. Keep him alive by sharing whatever he was and or gave to you, with as many others as you can. Brandon B. Bell

    May memories of Sidney, and the love of family surround you, give you strength, and solace in the days ahead. Sidney” will always be within my heart, and the many others that love him. I met Sidney about five years ago thru Facebook, and without ever laying eyes on him, he became a close friend, and apart of my family. There were many conversations, laughs, and words of wisdom shared, and received over the years. I'll forever remember his sayings: "I love you monkeys...", and "I will always believe in love..." Sidney was a beautiful; loving soul who will forever be remembered, and forever be missed. Love, and light. Demeka Allen (Houston, TX)

    Please accept my sincere condolences. It is a very difficult time; but I hope you can find some comfort in the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4, which reads: “3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” Yes, we can totally rely on our Loving God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29, Isaiah 55:11). Then death will be gone forever (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3,4) Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG ________
