I only knew of Sean through Cathy Young. I belong to AFWA with Cathy, where we treasure her as a member. I/we are extremely saddened by the loss of her son-in-law.
I am unable to attend the Nov. 9 gatherings, but am sending healing, loving energy to help with this deep loss for Cathy & Cathy's daughter, Sara.

I was a fellow nurse with Sean for almost 2 years. He was pretty quiet most of the time but you knew he would something funny to say. He started my IVs for me cos I’m bad at that. He was fun to work with.
It’s hard to imagine him gone and not helping his patients and colleagues
Gone so soon. Bless you Sean
My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family. I know there have been other tragedies in recent years

Sean was a great friend in Elementary and Jr. High School. I have a fond memory of trick-or treating with him one year along with a few other friends. Sadly didn’t see much of each other after we got into high school. I have nothing but great things to say about him. He will be surely missed. Rip Sean you were a very kind person and friend.
