This wonderful photo of my Uncle Sheldon was recently shared with me by his sister, my Aunt Rochelle. This next picture is also from Rochelle of her son David on his special day  On each side of David is Brenda (1950 – 2017) and Sheldon. Brenda is Sheldon and Rochelle’s younger sister.

February 8th fall’s on my birthday,  not only mine but my cousin-in-law Aaron. (if that is truly a designation) Aaron is married to Lisa, Rochelle’s daughter. In the two photo’s that follow, shared with permission of Aaron and Lisa, I would like to celebrate Sheldon by honoring our two most recent Bat/Bar Mitvah’s, their son Gabe (2015) and daughter Molly (2019). I am sure Sheldon was present with them, along with Brenda  – quietly urging them on, spiriting a veil of calm and excitement, showering them with love and light on their special days…

In finding my birth family I had the honor of meeting Sheldon one time before he passed away 6 weeks later. It was a shock to everyone as it was not expected. But overriding all the feelings of sadness in not getting to know Sheldon better I am blessed to know him through the eyes of my found family.
