I am Shel’s cousin-once-removed and I am so grateful to have learned of this website and to have read the tributes. Shel is my mother’s first cousin and I grew up with his creative, home-made birthday and other congratulatory cards as well as with his stories of the comic world and the annual San Diego convention. My first airplane trip, as a young girl, was from Phoenix to San Diego to visit the Dorfs. Shel and his parents gave me first class treatment including daily, scenic tours of San Diego. Shel loved San Diego and his friends and, most of all, sharing his passion for comics with everyone. Thank you so much for honoring him in this manner and for giving me even more insight into his world at a time when we are all thinking of him.
