"To Seth's entire family who loved him. My twin sons Tyler and Casey were friends with Seth, and classmates at East High School. I met Seth in front of our house one afternoon and immediately liked him. My heart aches for all of you, and I will continue to pray for your entire family. I am sure Seth is with his heavanly father in Paradise now, and we will see him again one day in beautiful form and pain-free". God Bless You. Charles "Chuck" Holm

I don't think any words can express the sadness in your hearts. Not knowing any of you except Jeff, I feel a real connection to you, Lisa. My heart goes out to you and what you must be feeling, the unanswered questions you must have...the empty feeling. Please know that God WILL get you ALL through this tough time.
Lisa, Please feel free to call me ANYTIME, if you need to talk, want to scream, cry, yell.....I can listen and perhaps share my story with you...
Thoughts, prayers, heartfelt sorrow goes out to your family...Melissa Conatser

Seth was my best friend and like a brother to me this year. i meet him in 2nd grade and became best friends right away. He was all ways laid back and mellow but a jokester made me smile everyday and id look forward to seeing him in school everyday. he would talk about the video games we play from the night before our the little trips him and his dad took to town, they were great stories and seemed to make him happy telling them. i miss so much it hard not talking to him. but i know all of his friends and family will get to see him again someday, and i know his in heaven having a blast, and is finally at peace there.
