Some father figure, huh?

I guess that's what happens when kids have kids.

Another one bites the dust.

I want to comment to the person who posted the January 1st comment about Sean. I do not know who you are or if you even knew Sean, but saying "some father figure" and "another one bites the dust" is a little ignorant and rude of you. Sean was a very nice person and loved his childeren very much. You do not even know any of the facts. Sean was an innocent bystander in this situation and his parenting had nothing to do with what happened. He was a good dad and did what he could in life for himself and for his children. Nobody is a perfect parent, but Sean, by far, was not a bad parent either. Whoever wrote this comment has no heart and obviously never even knew Sean.

I have been trying to post this comment all morning. My inability to do so comes from the fact that I'm sitting here in front of a computer posting this at all.

My fingers are numb, coinciding with the rest of my physcal condition,with the exception of the stinging bite my eyes endure from tears that flow all to freely. This is superceeded only by a searing emptiness through my chest caused by the hole left in my heart that is the exact size and weight of Sean Parmley.

King Arthur: Merlin, make me a hawk! Let me fly away from here!

I was introduced to Sean by a mutual friend. My life forever changed. This man educated me in a new way of thinking about the world, and people around me. He possessed the uncanny ability of treating situations proactively instead of reactively, thus causing a series of chain reactions with positive results and events.

With his own life lessons, he would gladly free you from chains that kept you bound by fear, anxiety, or whatever the situation was. These were not seen as obstacles by Sean. On the contrary, opposing forces created opportunities for him to do what he did best.

King Arthur: But even the thought, "I'm not thinking a thought" is thinking, isn't it?
Merlyn: Yes, and thinking is the sort of thing you should get into the habit of doing as often as possible.

What he did best was improving a life leaving an indelible marked difference. The following is the definition of indelible. Unabridged (v 1.1) - Cite This Source -
–adjective 1. making marks that cannot be erased, removed, or the like: indelible ink.
2. that cannot be eliminated, forgotten, changed, or the like: the indelible influence of a great teacher.

Sean could break you of your worst fears. I'm reminded of a trip we took to Santa Rosa in November to see his son.

King Arthur: [singing] In short, there's simply not / a more congenial spot / for happily ever aftering than here in Camelot.

As we were heading back home, Sean suggested seeing The Golden Gate Bridge. Knowing my fear of heights, gently took my hand reminding me to breathe as walked over it. Leading me by my hand to the railing,we were suddenly looking downward into a one of the most beautiful sites I had ever seen. My fear of heights was broken that day. Please note, this is just a glimpse of what this man gave me using the most powerful tools he possessed. He used his love, friendship and generosity of self. If not for Sean, that fear would still grip my life today effecting my life negatively.

I am well equiped with the tools to life, he so graciously bestowed upon me. The education of one's life time recieved in a short period of time.
I am privileged to have known him.
I am blessed by God who in His infinate wisdom graced me with Sean Parmley's presence.
I am honored to have lived by his side.

Don't let it be forgot, That once there was a spot, For one brief shining moment, That was known as Camelot.


Whoever wrote that crap about Sean was obviously jealous of Sean or never knew him. Sean was a great person & my life long friend. I miss him greatky & would do anything to have him back.
