So they packed all their bags and jumped in the car
And moved south to Hilton Head.
Lindy played tennis and Laura did, too
They made friends throughout the land,
And Lindy would watch and listen with pride
When Laura performed on her baby grand.
Laura fell ill, Alzheimer’s they said
Lindy stayed by her side till the end,
Then found the peace he’d been searching for
When he realized he’d lost his best friend.
A room in a church with a group of adults
He could hear laughter, music and chatter,
That was the day he found a new home
That was the day he found Memory Matters.
For twelve short years, never missing a day
He was voted their star volunteer,
His passion, his warmth and quick with a joke
Are the reasons they’d stand up and cheer.
Our father was born on a cold winter’s night
A star must have been shining above,
A man unique in his ways, with so much to give
Especially his heart filled with love.
Lindy leaves four children, Robin Sills (Richard) of Danbury, CT, Randi Selman (Aaron) of Bluffton, SC, David Lindenbaum (Rhonda) of Marlboro, NJ, Alison Tannenbaum (Ross) of Boynton Beach, FL; eleven grandchildren all with spouses or significant others; eight great-grandchildren, and loving cousins, nephews and nieces.
A celebration and remembrance of Lindy will be on Saturday, February 1 at Memory Matters, 117 William Hilton Parkway, Hilton Head, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make your donations to
Memory Matters, PO Box 22330, Hilton Head Island, SC 29925.
