To the Garrabrant Family, I remember Sean from when he was a cub scout in the pack that I led when he was a boy. My own son was 2 or 3 years ahead of Shane. It is a shame that he had to leave us at such a young age. While I moved away from Streator 20 years ago, I have heard Sean's name a number of times through the years. I now live in the Kansas City area and I regret not being able to pay my respects to you in person. I will be keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers as you go through the difficult time of adjustment to life without him
