Sad news for VPI - from their Facebook page...

VPI Industries Inc.
Dear friends, dealers, and customers,

Sheila has been fighting cancer with everything she has but is unfortunately near the end of her battle. We have been taking the time to be with Sheila and support her as much as we can while she is still with us. Orders, emails, phone calls... everything is delayed because of this hard time. We ask for your understanding and patience. We also ask that you direct all technical questions to your dealer otherwise it might take awhile before we respond. We will keep you all updated on what is happening.

Thank you!
Mat Weisfeld

My deepest sympathies to Sheila's family and friends during this most difficult and sad time. Peace be with all of you!
I spoke with Sheila when I ordered my VPI a number of years ago,and a couple times after.She is a pleasure to speak to,very friendly,genuinely good .Im sorry to hear this.
My heart goes out to the Weisfeld family. I lost my father to cancer a few years ago so I understand what you are going through. Cherish the time you have left with Sheila and I know she will forever live in your hearts. We all are grieving with you.
I'm truly sorry to hear this. She was indeed a joy to speak to on the phone. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, her, and the entire family.
Dear Harry and Family,

My praayers are with you and your entire family.


This is truly heartbreaking to learn of. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sad news indeed. They are very nice people and the company is a pleasure to do business with.... I wish them every comfort.
I called VPI years ago to get a recommendation for an upgrade for my HW19 MK IV. Sheila answered the phone and the result of the conversation was that she advised me to keep what I have. I found her to be a lovely person and I've always looked back on the conversation with warmth.

My heart goes out to the family.
As an FYI for everyone....their facebook page was updated about an hour ago to let everyone know that Sheila did pass away this morning. Very sad indeed.
I spoke to her, just about a month ago(sweet person). R.I.P. Shiela, and my condolences to the family.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Sheila and all those affected by her illness. Great companies like VPI are a result of great people, and Sheila truly fits that bill.
Very sad news. All my thoughts are with family.

I always received the best of customer service from Mike, Sheila and Harry, always with that New Yorker directness :-)
When I once contacted them for advice, I found them to be very helpful. It was evident that they are great people, my heart goes out to their family.
Sorry to hear of your loss.
My deepest sympathies, and condolences to the Weisfield Family.
