Just an addition to my last email to the group. I realize my last email was probably a bit sounding like a script, as usually I'm rather long winded as most friends of mine know all too well. But on Sheldon's passing I'm left a little speechless, and lost for words. And as I'vbe said, I have read almost all of the greatly worded heartfelt letter sent in to the list, and there isn't really much else I could add, other than I will miss Sheldon.

As I wrote to a few close friends late last night, in all the years at Larz Anderson, meeting Sheldon when he attended was always a very special part of that day for me, and I'm sure others. I recall not many, but a few calls to Harris Cyclery over the years questioning Sheldon on what were probably rather silly questions on technical things I never could grasp. Sheldon was always very willing to help out answering any question if time allowed. He was always a true gentleman, an extremely talented man who truely was a Rennasaince Man and will be really missed.
