Robbie & Lynn,
Words cannot even begin to express the sadness we feel over Sean's passing. He was such a kind and gentle young man. We fondly remember the many trips to countless hockey arenas and the boys playing in the neighborhood. How much fun we all had together. He will be missed and remembered.
Our heartfelt condolences.

I was a Professor of Sean's this past semester at CCV. I came to know Sean over our short time in the classroom and outside drinking coffee. We would swap pictures of our sons who are the same age and he always lit up when talking about him. He was a good story teller and I'll miss him. I'm very sorry for your loss.
