Sean and I were inseparable growing up. We shared a ton of great times, and I will carry those memories forever. Sean's laugh and smile were infectious. I will never forget the experiences we shared, many of which have shaped who I am today. To Mr and Mrs Fitzgibbons, Sheila, Scott, and Liz, I offer my condolences. I am currently overseas and can't make it to the service, but please know I am there in thought. God bless

I will forever remember his smile and laugh. His back flips in the halls and him just being one of the genuine people I knew. You will be greatly missed.

I will forever remember his "up to no good" smirk and his ever lasting sense of humor. His spontaneous back flips wherever he was. God rest your soul Sean
