  • Sean, remember that time we stayed up all night watching movies and ended up cutting our fingers and becoming blood brothers? Or the time we got stuck on the train tracks behind your house? Or the time our skateboards ended up in the harbor and we had to dive in after them? I never got to say good-bye, but you never left me. It’s been too long since I last saw you but you were always in my thoughts. Very few childhood memories exist that don’t have you in it. You were my brother. I know you are at peace now playing guitar and skating. I am so sorry for your loss mom.

He liked to surprise me by calling every once in a great while. Such a funny laugh he had. He’ll always be in all our hearts & memories. May God bless you all with his peace, comfort & love.

  • i cannot express enough my condolences. i hadnt talked to sean in like 15 years, but he ran into a mutual friend last month or a month and a hald ago. we were friends and i always respected him. I feel horrible because he wanted to get together but i made excuses and was busy i just had a baby, but i meant to make it happen. i didnt think he sounded sad or upset pr anything, GOD i wish i had known. i will be contacting as many people as possible we grew up with amd we are going to do a memoroal painting for his honor, his struggle, wnd his unshakeable kindness. ill post more as i get it together, im so sorry, words dont express. if anyone wants to call ,my number is 203-202-4178, Jason Crowell.
