I was so sorry to hear of Sean's passing. I thought so much of him & you. He was a very fine young man & will be deeply missed. I wish I could have made it to the funeral but I was at the hospital with my mom at the time & she also passed. I will always remember Sean with a smile & keep a place for him in my heart. If you or the family need anything please don't hesitate to call me ok. You were not only tenants to me but great friends who I thought a lot of. God Bless you & you & the family will be in my thoughts & prayers. You have my cell#.
