I first met Sean when he was a student at Emory & Henry College back in 1998. We became good friends over the next five years and kept in touch for several years after he graduated in 2003. Sean always had a big smile and positive outlook on life. He could make me laugh and lift my spirits whenever I had a bad day. During one trip we took to Whitetop Mountain, Sean was showing me a path that his Boy Scout troop (I believe it was Troop 79) had built. We were searching for the infamous "Lover's Leap" overlook near the top of the mountain. We were both pretty confident that we could find it since we had been there once before but it had been awhile. Somehow, we veered off the trail and ended up well below the overlook. When I pointed upward and said, "Isn't that Lover's Leap UP THERE?" Sean literally fell on the ground laughing when he realized we had gotten off the beaten path. This story may not sound as funny reading it, but it certainly gave us both a laugh that day. I will sure miss you, Sean, but I know that you are with God now and enjoying the best health once again. I pray now that God will comfort your family and reassure them that you are in the best hands now.
