My condolences to Sean's family. Sean always had a smile and a hand to lend when needed. I'm grateful to him for being my mentor in the Acolyte program, I don't think he knew how much it meant to me, thanks Sean we'll miss you.

i was so sorry to hear about Sean's passing. his loss will be enormous for the St.A Community. his smile and his presence were constant. i spoke to him a couple of weeks ago after services about himself and his 'little helper. ' the two were responsible for 'passing the plate.' he smiled.... we / i will miss the ''duo.''

i was so sorry to hear about Sean. he was such a part of the St A Community and his smile and generosity will be missed. i saw him at church two weeks ago. his smile was as open as ever. he really will be missed from the community.
