“My condolences to Sean’s family and apologies for the late response. I have served with Sean during my early years in the Army in Korea. He was a Sgt. in my platoon and I would like to think that he had a hand in molding me into the NCO I was. He always had a laid back and positive attitude. He will be greatly missed.”
“I met Sean in the Army in 2004 in Korea. We were in the same platoon and later on the same team for the rest of his and mine’s time on active duty. He was a mentor and a good friend to me and many others. My deepest condolences to his family, I know how much he loved you all.”
“My brother, I will be here for you always love you man”
“I have worked with Sean for the last four years. He always approached each conversation with a listening ear and a solution minded attitude. Our motto was “there isn’t anything Sean can’t do.” If it weren’t for Sean our team simply would not be as strong as it is today. He is so very missed everyday but we will continue to channel his energy as The Calm Attentive Listener. I am deeply saddened for your entire family and I have not stopped thinking about you. May God bring you peace and some level of purpose.”
“To Jill and your whole family, we offer our deepest condolences and we are sad with you in the loss of Sean. We will continue to pray that the good memories you have of him will burn bright enough to make the pain more bearable.”
“I worked with Sean for ~15 years. I loved working with him. Always had such a willing helpful attitude. He will be sorely missed by those that came to rely on his assistance. He had a great sense of humor. To Lilli and Logan: There is no doubt he loved you so very much. Sometimes things happen and we just can’t understand why. “Why” can be such a cruel question when it can’t be answered. Please, just remember how much he loved you, cared for you, provided for you, sacrificed for you and don’t try to get the answer to why. A lot of people seem to blame God, but the reality is, God loves your dad (yes, now), God loves you both and bad things like this are just a by product of this world. Take solace in John 5:28:29. Please accept my sincere condolences.”
“Sean is a warm, kind, intelligent, thoughtful, fun and responsible soul who sought peace and loved his family. Jill, Lilli and Logan, our hearts go out to you; there are no words to make it right only arms to hug you tight. He is loved and you are loved, that will never change. May peace and love surround all his family. RIP Sean.”
“To Jill, Lilli, and Logan. I love you all to heaven and beyond. I am here always. Love Mom and Nawnie”
“To my daughter and grand babies. I am so sorry that your going through this pain. I loved Sean as my own I watched Sean and Jill grow from teenagers to young adults to parents.

“Jill no words will erase your pain. Sean was truly one of a kind. He had an old soul and Always put others before himself. Sean had a sweet deamor, so patient with his children and always explained to them how their actions not only effected them but those around them. His smile was a quiet sweet smile but his eyes had mischieve in them. What I will miss the most are the summer vacations with me in NC. I love him so much.
