Sean, you were such a delight to work with! I will always remember your wonderful stories that always made me think, your political jokes, your vast knowledge of random and interesting facts, telling silly stories of our bulldogs to each other, your determination to make your salad cost $10 each shift, & the smell of banana peppers! You were genuinely a great person with a wonderful soul. When I get to Heaven and see you again, I want to hear you yell "Chelsey!" just as you would down the hall to greet me each time I saw you! I love and miss you, friend! We will be praying for your family!
