Dear Sean,
You will be missed. Thank you for always being there, the only one sometimes. The world lost one of the last "gentlemen". I love you.

You may be one of many who left us that day, but you will always remain in everyones mind and heart. We still survive knowing that we will meet with you again some day.

Sadly missed,

Sean....its been over a month, but I still find it hard to believe you are gone. You were one of the most genuine, sincere and funniest people I have ever known. I think back on all of the great times we had together when we all lived in Woodside. Walking to Forest Hills during a snow storm to see Rocky Horror is one of my greatest memories. Your Mom is one incredible woman. Even in her pain, she still thinks of others. You were all blessed with such a great family. I will miss you, and I will never forget you..

We miss you more than you could ever know. It's a long hard road without you. Who would have thought that hearing Fleetwood Mac and Grateful Dead would bring tears to my eyes. You are truly irreplaceable.

Forever in our Hearts,
Celine, Louis, & Aidan

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
what ever we were to each other,
that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name
speak to me in the easy way you used to.
Put no difference in your tone.
wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
pray, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means more than it ever meant,
it is the same as it ever was,
there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be put out of mind because I am out of sight.
I am waiting for you for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.
All is well!
My body is only a reflection.

You were a truly lovely man with a heart of gold. I'll always remember you as someone who would make everyone laugh and light up a room with your smile. I'll love you forever.
