    Sydney and I were first cousins and had some good times when we were young. My family and I lived overseas for 29 years and I lost track of him. We live in Nacogdoches now. My condolences to all who loved Sydney. I would like to make contact with the family!

    Sydney is my first cousin. I remember the visits to Dumas to our grandparent's home. We kids always had so much fun visiting. Sydney always had the best smiles and laugh. Though we got busy raising families and lost track of each other, I will miss him. Praying for the family.

    To Rachel, Dana, Chad and JJ ... our hearts are heavy with the sorrow you all feel at such a difficult time. But I have wonderful memories of the Thanksgiving meals you all shared with me, and the special Christmastime gathering I enjoyed with all of you many years ago. So much love and laughter and good times. I will forever cherish these memories because I consider them as gifts from Syd and Dian. God bless you all and know I am praying for your peace, comfort and understanding.

    Sorry for the loss of Syd. He was such a very nice guy. We worked at the same company and he was always in a very happy mood when he would come to the store to work. God will comfort you all through during this time. God Bless
