You may be familiar with Sid from a number of posts over the years.  He and his family were neighbors for a number of years to both my parents.  The last mention of him by Dad was that of February 9th entitled “Unexpected Requests”.  He did a wonderful job speaking yesterday despite his nerves.  It is always such a blessing to see your parents through someone else’s eyes, to see them beyond being Dad.  Thank you for that, Sid.  Below is what Sid gave me yesterday following Dad’s service and reception.

John Cowart was more than a friend.  To me, he was like family.  Even though, it was sad for him to go, he told me that he was ready to go.  So seeming him go maybe the sad part but I have come to realize thay he is in a better place and that will always be with us.  I’ve gotten to see him in half my lifetime.  Trust me when I say, he was a good person to talk to.  He was the kind of person who talked about his life and cared for others.  So now as we say goodbye to John Cowart, he leaves a legacy to me and others who loved him that you should always keep a smile on your face when you see the ones you love.

    Sid spoke very well and from the heart. I take Sid to be maybe 14 / 15 years old.
    Anyone that age, who had the opportunity to hangout with “John W. Cowart” half
    his life, is no doubt wise beyond his years.
    💔Love You John💖 and all of his family as well.
    God Bless

    I know dad spoke very highly of Sid and loved him. I was very proud and honored he spoke in dad’s memory. I sure do miss him and mom so much. I am blessed to have them as our parents and thank God, blessed with awesome siblings and adopted family which are our friends!!

    Thank you all for your support, prayers and care, we can’t tell you how much you being here means to us. Please keep sharing dad’s blog to keep his dream going!!
