Kae. Young Sean McCarthy was a good friend of my eldest son and when we returned to Queensland the two of them struck up a friendship. Sean spent many weekends at our place.

I remember him having a great ability to give you his total undivided attention when you spoke with him.

I have felt so hollow since he died. He was a very special young man. Mehaul

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss, Mehaul.

It's bad enough to hear of someone gone too soon, but when you know them, or there's only a degree of separation, it's worse because the pain of loss is close by.

I trust you and your son have many happy memories of Sean, and will be able to share them with his family.
