Sidney was an amazing man with such a great spirit. He knew how to embrace the world and make you see things that you never noticed before. He was forever kicking his legs up to show everyone that even as he aged, he still had it "going on." To know him, was to love him. The world is a much better place for having Sidney in it!!

If you have facebook, there is an open group called "Friends of Sidney Tapscott" Over 1500 joined within 24 hours of his passing. EVERYONE is telling stories about Sidney, I'm sad for you that you never got to meet him. Also, Google him. So proud and privileged that I had the honor of having him in my life!!

Used to see Sidney all the time when I worked downtown in the mid 80s through the 90s. He was a constant presence on the mall. I hope we are all able to give him the send off he deserves.

Stop by the Blue Moon and make a donation.....

Thank you so much for doing such a nice job on Sidney's story. I was wondering if it is possible to find the video clip somewhere. I'd love to share it. Friends on Sidney's group facebook page now number well over 1600. These are actual friends, too. The stories are amazing. The funeral home guy said in all his years of doing his job, he has never seen this level of loving response and donated the casket, among other things. He and his family were touched by what they saw and how much of a difference Sidney made in people's lives.

Thanks again Whitney.
