Dear Mindy, Michelle and family,
My sincere sympathy on Sy's passing... I delight in memories of his classes that I attended in Mays Landing many years ago. He was so nice and helpful. I still have photos of my projects as I progressed in learning and a group shot with Sy when the class ended... May beautiful memories sustain you always and may Sy's sweet soul rest in peace.
Sincerely, Claudette Dee
