Sean got so much out of life in his thirty years and was an inspiration to all who knew him. He had an amazingly positive spirit and made the most of each day even through the toughest times. He was sweet and funny and loved to make people laugh. He had a strong faith in God and often quoted, 1 John 4:8 – God is love. Sean will be missed so much by so many.
