    Me and Sean met in HS, we were next door neighbors for a year. I remember the basketball team Capt. telling me not to hang out with him(I was a good kid...well, I never got caught!) We became friends immediately. Mom and Pop Kettl were absolutely the best in giving our bunch a safe place to be as wild as we were! Sean wrote a corny teen angst poem that he loved to read: "Life is a Circle". It was so awful! Hahaha! He loved it. I loved that. Oh well. Maybe life is a circle in some way. It is kind of a nice thought.

    Sean and I were best friends from about 3rd grade onward into adulthood. So many good memories, especially at the beach. Sean was always one to live life on his own terms and stood for justice and equality for all people. Sean was a good man and he will be missed.
