Sending my deepest condolences to Sean’s family and loved ones. You were taken far too soon Sean. 
Sean, you and my brother Sean were thick as thieves growing up through the years. You left an indelible memory on my heart and in my mind as being so uplifting, loving, caring and giving. I always felt so grateful that Sean had you in his life for as long as he did. Your laughter and smile could light up a room the moment you walked in.

I remember those days just like yesterday although the years were 1985-1989 growing up in East Fallowfield. Sean hung with my cousins and I, Bobby (RIP), Lara, Duane, Glen, Wesley and many others The spot was behind South Brandywine at my grandparents house. Riding bicycles, playing sports, building forts, making secrets passages in the cornfields, fishing and Silver
Bridge and swimming at the dam. What a childhood we had 😊 Sean was always energetic ,enthusiastic and that unique laugh will never be forgotten.
Until we meet again my friend ❤️

Sean will be missed, he was the life of the party, always having fun. I remember him playing flashlight tag with me and a couple other kids in the backyard during the summers. We'll miss his energy, compassion, and his great attitude. Sean will be greatly missed.
