For Sean

Posted in Uncategorized by Sean Holton on December 13, 2011

On behalf of my family, thank you for your love and support during this very difficult time. Your energy and prayers gave us the strength we needed to walk through this wrenching journey with our brother. Many people have asked to view the tribute I created for Sean which was shown at his Memorial Service on December 10th, 2011 in Orlando, so I am posting it here for now. May we all find peace . . .

    Tears and a smile. Thank you for sharing. I know there is now an empty place at the table, but there will always be a full place in your hearts.

    I was touched that the origami cranes made it into your video tribute to your brother, Sean.

    He had such a big impact on everyone he met and those of us, including me, who knew him only through his blog postings.

    He taught me to savor each day, which I think is a great legacy.

    Sean still lives on – as I knew he would – The tribute brought tears to my eyes – Some people live a life time and never get to read the words that Sean so freely shared. My heart is heavy with the loss of such an inspiring man. I will truly miss the words of his blog. They got me through some pretty rough days and the anticipation of getting home to see what he had in store for another “life’s lesson” will be missed more than I can say. Julie and Tim are dear friends of mine – Tim and I are Birthday Buds – we share the same month, day and year. Julie and I have been friends and worked together for a very long time. i love them both so much! I feel I know all of you from all the wonderful stories that Julie has shared. Ellen, God has an amazing way of turning tears of saddness into tears of joy as one shares the memories and cherish times that can never be forgotten. Sean will always bring a smile to my face as I fondly remember all life’s lesson he taught me. He changed lifes and he kept life full and simple. For meeting him one time at Julie’s 50th Birthday, I think it is pretty amazing that someone can make such an impact on me.!

    Sean, through the words I have saved from your blog – we wil meet again, as I re-read the treasure of your words over and over the “Same Time Tomorrow”! A Jamison and smile to you, Sean!!

    God Bless you Ellen & your family,
    Carolyn Radman

    Sean showed up one day on his old buddy Craig’s blog and in time we would exchange banter about politics and also dogs. May I ask into whose care Kayley and Chopper were remanded? Sean loved those dogs.
    My favorite story line was Sean’s bicycle trip across the USA . Craig’s bloggers are a pretty tight bunch. We are missing Sean.

      Dexter, his dogs Chopper and Kaley are in the caring hands of his brother Brian whose three fabulous children are thrilled to have them.

    We weep no more my friend
    Only dream
    Vivid again
    In our dreams
    Captured scenes
    You remain
    In our dreams

      We think of Sean often and draw from his ever shared wisdom (and “full of it” Crap).
