    You were so right with the ease of Sean’s friendships, and the many great memories of him from my childhood, thru my adulthood. He will never be forgotten. Please know you have an amazing support system in New Jersey, and I know that any of Sean’s friends would do anything you need from us. We have been, and will continue to pray for you everyday. Just think of the amazing Christmas Sean had celebrating with Jesus himself!!!
    God Bless….Amie Carroll

  15. Ms. Clancy, Colleen and Sean’s extended family..I have known of u all now for 18yrs so I can say you are one of the closest, most amazing families I have ever known. Sean loved you all so deeply and everything I have is with you all especially today. Sean was the strongest most caring, loyal and funnest person I had the privilege of having in my life. Because he was such a protector I think I and many others just thought he would be here forever taking care of us all. He always seemed invincible. Wether you were with him or far away you knew he was there if u needed him. “A phone call away” All signs of a great person and amazing friend! I am who I am today because of him and I will be forever grateful for the years we shared and the amazing memories I have. He will be missed by SO many..God bless you all today and may Seans strength, love, hope and smile fill your hearts every second from this moment on. Love you all xo

  16. Sean,
    You put up a great fight and for that I thank you. You gave all of us who knew and loved you time to spend with you. I have such great memories of you that I will always hold dear to my heart. Love you forever.
    Play well, xoxo

  17. Sean,
    I am so thankful to have spent 3 years with you as well as having a friendship for years after. I am so sorry that you suffered for so long; you never gave up. You are a man of tremendous character and I will always remember all the things you taught me. You will always have a special place in my heart. Thanks for always being there for me when I needed you most; sometimes just to talk. I know you are going to do well up there playing golf; there are probably a million golden tee games up there!! Thank you for our great conversation recently as I will hold onto that forever. I also have many pictures as memories. My heart goes out to the Clancy family; they are an amazing group of people especially your mom and sister. Your bond with them was one-of-a-kind. Please watch over us as you are the strongest guardian angel I know. Love Always,

  18. He was a strong soul and I do remember some great memories back in the day. He always knew how to make you laugh. My thoughts with you and your family Colleen.

  19. Clancy Family and Friends, Please accept my deepest condolences. The memories of Sean will live on forever. And he will be in our hearts forever. Nothing can ever take that away.

    For me, it was Sean’s laugh….. As soon as he laughed, he would literally have me crying with Laughter. It will forever, bring a smile to my face. I am so grateful for that memory, and to have known Sean…

    RIP Red..Love ya, buddy.

  22. Sean, Simply put-you were the toughest person I knew. You showed that to everyone the way you fought hard everyday for your friends and family not to lose you.
    Ill never forget our friendship and the days spent on the baseball field together. Everytime you stepped on the field you brought this sense of calm and played with such grace- It was like for the time being- that was where you belonged, I can only hope that as you enter the Gates of Heaven, You hold your head up high Sean – Because That my friend, is where you TRULY belong!

    You were great #8 -Its not everyday someone like you comes along. Your smile, your laugh, your uncanny ability to be the best at everything you did. You will NEVER be forgotten Reds!

    Mrs. Clancy – I can only say that you raised a special son that turned into a special man that will be missed by all who knew him.

    Col- I know he was the best brother to you, – I know that you and Fran will raise Ellie the way your mom did Sean- God Bless You Both!

  23. Clancy,

    You are the epitome of nursing… always accepted life “full throttle”. I know that my opinion of you is exactly the same with raising your children. I am so sorry and broken by your loss, and I cannot imagine your pain.
    On the other hand, I am sure you were an amazing Mom and advocate in helping Sean. I am from the “Big” Irish family, and have lost two brothers way before their time….we NEVER forget them. We still cry and we still break up laughing remebering some of our life together.
    Please enjoy all the awesome memories you have of your wonderful son……enjoy his memory, share his stories, embrace his love.
    Love to all,
