My sincerest sympathy to Sean's family on his passing. I knew Sean from the early "sixties" being a part of the "Margate Crowd from Philly." We all had a great time together. I haven't seen Sean since we all had dinner with him back in August, 1964 and this was the same night I met my husband of 53 years. Sean was a really nice person and I will remember him and his family in my prayers. May he rest in peace.
