Ricardo McPhee and family from The Bahamas salutes this fallen solider. You have impacted Rickie "RJ" in a very special way since he met you the day he played against Capital. You made him feel at home away from home and encouraged Rickie to join you at Capital. Hence, Rickie is present today. To your family, God makes no mistakes. Be encourage and continue to press on in the spirit of "Seamus".

I can only hope that your family remains strong jn spite of this tragedy. Seamus was one of the brightest young kids I had the pleasure to meet, and his potential to make something of himself was through the roof. My memory of his spirit will never die..

Love and peace to all. I was at the pond on Thursday evening and we all tried everything we could think to do to find and revive this beautiful young man. I feel very moved by the love and kindness I've witnessed this week in this circle of friends and family young and old. I'm grieving with you and I thank you for sharing your stories and pictures. I'm very sad about your loss and I'm very heartened to have seen what wonderful people and community you are. Words barely express but I send you my deep prayers.

I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads his white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.
He is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch him until at length
he hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says, "There, he is gone."
"Gone where?"
Gone from my sight. That is all.
He is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as he was when he left my side.
And he is just as able to bear his load of living freight to his destined port.
His diminished size is in me, not in him.
And just at the moment
when someone at my side says, "There, he is gone!"
There are other eyes standing on the opposite shore watching him, and there are other voices ready to take up the glad shout,
"There, he comes!" Henry Van Dyke

God bless Seamus and the entire Beall family
