Sean.........

Remembering you on this day my little brother.......

It's hard to believe it's been 6 years......
It only seems like yesterday...

Sean died in a car accident. The damage my little brother sustained in this accident was horrific. My parents witnessed it first hand. They were nearly first on the scene. They watched in horror standing helplessly as the scene unfolded before their eyes....

Hoping
Praying

That help would come....

No Jaws of life were to be found (in the vicinity)
The scanner was all a' buzz begging for a helicopter that would never arrive

State Highway Patrol did arrive and what they discovered seemed as chilling if not more than what was right before them.....

In the midst of this madness it was discovered that both my brother and his best friend had been robbed. While they were dying. While they were trapped. "That Person" who WAS first on the scene instead of calling 911 was robbing my brother and his friend. Cutting their wallets that were attached to chains from their injured and dying bodies.

17 miles North of town...

It was just too far with very little local resources available....

I don't think it would have mattered

Seans injuries really were Horrific

His best friends were too who by the way was engaged to be married upon his return home from his visit with Sean.

My parents will never be the same because of what they saw..
That horrific scene will forever be etched in their minds...

For the Record..

Sean WAS buckled in and only traveling roughly 30 mph and even as safe as that seems...This crash was deadly. I used to work on the squad and I can tell you from personal experience that it doesn't take a high speed crash for it to be deadly.

Sean was the sweetest little brother. He was a darling little baby with the cutest blond curls which my dad hated by the way :0)

As a toddler he was mischeveous, cute as a bugs ear and rotten to the core! He muddled his way through that awkward stage boys go through and grew into a very handsome young man.

His compassion for the weak, wounded or the least of these was unmeasurable. Sean was the MOST caring/loving person. His generosity was next to none offering anything he had even if it was his last and sometimes it WAS his last. He had very little often wearing raggedy clothes and going without food so his children would not.

He was well known for taking in homeless friends and other peoples unwanted children. He was raising his little girl alone because abandoned her as well as her 2children that were not even his biologically not to mention the "other men" she had on the side. Needless to say the children were devasted and left with nobody.

He loved Jophie...
He loved his children...

ALOT

I can still see his smile and can almost feel him squeezing me tight. Sean always gave me the BEST bear hugs and back rubs ever! I miss you so much and can hardly wait to see you again.

Remember the River is where we said we'd meet..

SO until then....

I love you buddy and Jophie and I will meet ya by the River!

Love,
Trina and Jophie

Shedding tears here for your brother, for you, for your parents, for his kids, and for all the loved ones he and his friend left. Wish I knew what to say. That has got to be the highest level of cruelty, to add to the suffering of someone in pain and to disregard their urgent needs and think only of one's own desires. Jesus, have mercy on someone so clueless and corrupt and save them.

Oh Trina, how horrible for you and expecially your parents. How do you ever get over that? I don't think you do. And for those people who robbed them, they will get justice from God.
