There have been very few people in my life that have effected me as much as Sean did. I think of my fiance, my parents and my siblings. My friends from home, all of them giving to me and me to them something special, part of who we are. Well, Sean definitely was in that select group. I played rugby with him and he was my college roommate. We had so many good times together and with the group of guys we lived with. However, there was something else Sean gave to me that I will never forget, his love of life. Sean's memorial was a testament of how to live your life. There were so many people that he affected, changed, and loved (that) it was almost unbelievable. Unfortunately, I have learned this lesson through the loss of a dear friend. I assure you though, everyone who was in that church with me that night will never forget it. And when we have children and grandchildren, Sean will be there in their hearts, laughing, playing and enjoying life. There will never be a day, when I hear "Take Me Home Country Road," where I will not think of him and what he did for me. I miss him very much and what hurts the most is that my kids will never know him, other than my memories. God bless everyone who reads this and please remember to live your life with the same zeal as the children that unfortunately have missed the opportunity to meet, learn and love from so many beautiful people.
