    Janet,
    I just heard of Sheldon’s passing today(2/24)and was stunned. The last few times I stopped by were on Wednesdays and of course Sheldon was not there. My sincere condolences to you and your family. I realize I was just a customer, but we all know that’s not how Sheldon thought of us. You and all of us have lost someone very special. The world could use a lot more individuals like Sheldon who brought such laughter and joy to those he touched and integrity to what he did. As my wife stated,”he had found his niche and did it well”. I will truly miss my talks with Sheldon about life and cars and my car buying experience will never be the same.
    My deepest sympathies,
    Bob Corfield

    All of my deepest sympathy and prayers goes to all of you on the loss of such a special person. I was lucky enough to have gotten to know him through Billi always talking about him and was so thankful to have met him at her wedding. All my love to my dearest Billi
    Love Jessica, Joe and Lydia Agnello.

    The world has most definitely lost one of the good guys. Uncle Shel was one of those people who could always made everyone else feel comfortable, no matter where he was. He was the life of the party, had an intoxicating laugh, and had a zest for life that few people do. He will truly be missed by many.

    Here are a couple of fond memories I have of Shel:

    *I was in town visiting with the kids the summer before last and Shel noticed that I had a sock that was in disrepair. He chased me all over the house so he could take those socks off, throw them away, and give me a new pair of his own! Apparently, he didn’t care much for holey socks (Heaven forbid!).

    *I remember when Tim and I were in our twenties (oh, so long ago); Janet & Shel had an awesome blue Corvette that they let us take out for a ride. It was one of the coolest car moments I’ve ever had! Of course, Shel was one of the coolest car guys I’ve ever met too!

    Until we meet again, Sheldon.
    With love from Sherry, Tim, Jordan & Carter Silcox
