Remembering our dearest Sheldon Pinckney today. There will forever be a missing punchline, a dimmed marquee, and many heavy hearts because you are no longer sharing the stage with us.
A big thank you and much love to @johndavisflorist for always remembering Sheldon with a beautiful poinsettia and to the anonymous person who came in today and laid these flowers under Sheldon’s picture in the lobby. ❤️
