MY SON My heart still hurts and Aches in sadness And secret tears still flow What it meant to lose you No one will ever know
Here's Your Moth and Dragonfly Sean
Thank You Julie
I'M FREE Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me I took his hand when I heard his call, I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work or to play
Tasks left undone, must stay that way I found peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with a remembered joy!
A love shared, a laugh, a kiss Oh yes, these things I too will miss
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savoured much Good friends, good times, and a loved one's touch Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
Don't lenghtened now with undue grief.
OUTSIDE OUR HOME
I feel a warmth around me like your presence is so near, And I close my eyes to visualize your face when you were here, I endure the times we spent together and they are locked inside my heart, For as long as I have those memories we will never be apart, Although we cannot speak anymore my voice is always there, Because every night before I sleep I have you in my prayers.
A FATHER'S GRIEF It must be very difficult to be a man in grief, since men don't cry and men are strong, No tears can bring relief. It must be very difficult to stand up to the test,
and take calls and visitors so Mom can rest. They always ask if she's alright and what she's going through, But seldom take his hand and ask, "My friend, but how are you?" He hears her crying in the night and thinks his heart will break, He dries her tears and comforts her, but stays strong for her sake. It must be very difficult to start each day anew, and try to be so very brave.... He lost his son

Sean you were a great competitor. I will never forget the matches we had at Districts and Sectionals my junior year in 1999. You were part of the reason I dropped down to 145 my senior year. It was your time to shine and you worked so hard to earn...
Thinking of You / Mom

As a child Sean enjoyed the normal activities of any other boy. Sean always liked to ride his Big Wheel in front of his Grandma & Grandpa O'Neals house. Growing up he liked to ride his bike alot as was always making it better with shiny & flashy accessories. He started playing T ball & continued playing baseball until about 15 yrs old. His real joy was wrestling which he started at a young age. We would travel every w/e with Little Dixie Wrestling Club to local towns and wrestle all day. He was quite a wrestler. We have great memories of his growing up. He had alot of friends who kept us all busy. He once played like Santa was on the roof for his sister, Whitney. He was always bringing home his share of frogs, turtles, snakes, cats and dogs. He also had his share of pet rodents. Sean grew up with Daniel and Kelli step brother and sister-put 4 kids together and Ron and I were busy. We took them camping alot and long road trips that they tell us about now. I'm sure they each have stories between themselves to share. We love them all. I will never forget when Sean tied a snake to the front porch with a string of yarn. Sean was a comedian full of jokes, fun and pranks. Sean also walked in his sleep which the Brysons can attest to. As he grew and graduated from Jr. High he continued on at MHS. He started driving his Grandma O'Neals old chevy Impala nicknamed "The Ocean." We continued watching him grow into a young man. He played freshman football and ran track for 2 yrs. In track he lettered All District Champ 800 meter--4x100 relay- 1st- 4x800 All District Champ 4x400 All District Champ. His wrestling skills improved with all coaches from Fry-Graham-Heaton to Coach Allen &Morgan. They taught him the Turk which he perfected and taught to Jeremy Cuno who I hear is teaching his little brother, Joshua. Sean in 2000 took 2nd place at State then in 2001 took first with an undefeated season of 39 & 0 at 152 lbs 3A. He graduated 2001 and attente d MIssouri Valley for 2 yrs. He married Kerri Walker on August 3 2002 where they resided in Marshall, Mo. with their daughter Madison born June 14, 2002. There are so many things I have not said--how can you share a persons life without writiing a book. Sean's accidental death on Sept. 26, 2005 has been a great loss. We miss him greatly and love him very much. This is such a short glimpse of Sean's life and everything. I can't even start to write it all down. Thanks to all family and the many friends who shared Sean's life with us. If you have anything to share please feel free to put it on the website. With our love Mom, Dad and Whitney
FOR MADISON FROM DADDY
********** DADDY WENT TO HEAVEN TO HEAR THE ANGELS SING DADDY WENT TO HEAVEN ON TIPS OF ANGEL WINGS DADDY SAYS "I LOVE YOU" AND SMILES DOWN AT ME FOR I CAN HEAR HIS WHISPERS IN THE TIDES OF ROLLING SEA DADDY PUTS ON SHOWS FOR ME HIS PUPPETS ARE THE STARS AND I CAN HEAR HIS LAUGHTER IN THE HUM OF DISTANT CARS DADDY PLAYS ME SONGS AT NIGHT I HEAR THEM ON THE WIND I LAY AWAKE JUST LISTENING UNTIL THE STARS GROW DIM DADDY WATCHES OVER ME HE KEEPS ME SAFE AND SOUND AND EVEN WHEN I'M ALL ALONE I KNOW THAT HE'S AROUND
God's Promise "I'll lend you for a little while A child of mine," he said. "For you to love him while he lives And mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years Or twenty - two or three. But will you, till I call him back Take care of him for me?
He'll bring charm to gladden you And should his stay be brief, You'll have his lovely memories As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise you he will stay Since all from earth return; But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over In search of teachers true, And from the throngs that crowds life's lane I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love Nor think your labor vain, Nor hate me when I come to call To take him back again.
I fancied that I heard them say 'Dear Lord, thy will be done'; For all the joy this child shall bring The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness We'll love him while we may; And for the happiness we've known Forever greatful stay.
But should the angels call for him Much sooner then we planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that come And try and understand...
Bereaved Parents Wish List
Bereaved Parents Wish List
I wish my child hadn't died. I wish I had him back.
I wish you wouldn't be afraid to speak my child's name. My child lived and was very important to me. I need to hear that he was important to you also.
Y If I cry and get emotional when you talk about my child, I wish you knew that it isn't because you have hurt me. My child's death is the cause of my tears. You have talked about my child and you have allowed me to share my grief. I thank you for both.
Y Being a bereaved parent is not contagious, so I wish you wouldn't shy away from me. I need you now more than ever.
Y I need diversions, so I do want to hear about you, but I also want you to hear about me. I might be sad and I might cry, but I wish you would let me talk about my child; my favorite topic of the day.
Y I know that you think of and pray for me often. I also know that my child's death pains you too. I wish you would let me know these things through a phone call, a card or note, or a real big hug.
Y I wish you wouldn't expect my grief to be over. These first years are traumatic for me, but I wish you could understand that my grief will never be over. I will suffer the death of my child until the day I die.
Y I am working hard in my recovery, but I wish you could understand that I will never fully recover. I will always miss my child and I will always grieve that he is dead.
Y I wish you wouldn't expect me "not to think about it" or "be happy". Neither will happen for a very long time, so don't frustrate yourself.
I don't want to have a "Pity party", but I do wish you would let me grieve. I must hurt before I can heal.
Y I wish you understood how my life has shattered. I know it is miserable for you to be around me when I'm feeling miserable. Please be as patient with me as I am with you.
Y When I say, "I'm doing okay", I wish you could understand that I don't "feel" okay and that I struggle daily.
Y I wish you knew that all of the grief reactions I'm having are very normal. Depression, anger, hopelessness and overwhelming sadness are all to be expected. So please excuse me when I'm quiet and withdrawn or irritable and cranky.
Y Your advice to "take it one day at a time" is excellent advice. However, a day is too much and too fast for me right now. I wish you could understand that I'm doing good to handle an hour at a time.
Y Please excuse me if I seem rude, certainly not my intent. Sometimes the world around me goes too fast and I need to get off. When I walk away, I wish you would let me find a quiet place to spend time alone. I wish you understood that grief changes people. When my child died, a big part of me died with him. I am not the same person I was before my child died and I will never be that person again.
I wish very much that you could understand ~ understand my loss and my grief. But, I pray daily that you will never understand. YYYYYYYYYYYY Poem from Compassionate Friends.
NOW I'M FREE
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard him call; I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play, Tasks left undone must stay that way; I found that place at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah yes, these things, I too will miss Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow My life's been full, I've savored much Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch Perhaps my time seems all to brief Don't lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me free.
