I was stunned yesterday to hear of the passing of Isaiah Sheffer. Mr. Sheffer made a lasting impact on my childhood in rural Florida, showing a snot-nosed, barefoot kid in the woods how beautiful theater and literature can be. Hearing of his death was for me the equivalent of hearing that a great landmark had toppled in my hometown. Mr. Sheffer will be sorely missed.
Peace and blessings to those who love him.
