    Sean and I shared a hobby.  I could never get him to say much in class, but on the way out he would usually stop and pull a rock out of his pocket to show me!  His enthusiasm about what he had collected was always so fun to see, and he always wanted to know how they formed.  So we had some great discussions.  Sometimes he was especially proud of a specimen because his dad had found it with him.  I will miss his quiet, gentle presence.

    I don't know if you remember me, but I am an elementary  teacher at Jesup Community Schools and so enjoyed working with Sean when he was a fourth grader. He was always so fun to work with in class.  He had a smile that would take the worst of days and make it into a much brighter one.  Sean didn't always show his feelings on the outside for all to see, but his soft tender heart always showed empathy for others.  He would be the student that would volunteer to work with others or help solve a problem that existed in the classroom or  on the playground. It is a great privilege to have worked with him as a teacher. May you find comfort in knowing that others really enjoyed your son.  Mrs. B.H.

    I work in the lunchroom at jesup school. When Sean went there, he would come for breakfast.  He always asked us how we were and told us to have a great day. Very sweet guy! His passing away breaks my heart. Prayers to you all. ❤
