To Sean's family, friends and co-workers, Sean and I went to middle and high school together in New York. He was my neighbor and best friend. We lost touch of one another after I moved away in 1989. We rode dirt bikes together almost everyday!!! Last night I decided to look up Sean, to see if I could reconnect with him and to my horror and disbelief I learned that he was killed in the line of duty.
"Sean man" we were so much alike as kids and as adults it was amazing to know that we took the same path in life and became LEOs.
May the Lord bless you and your family! May the lord keep you in the light of his face!! RIP my brother!!
