Rob, I pulled your comment from the last tread to post here. Many heartfelt condolences to you and your family.
JIM SHEAN: MARCH
30, 1926-JULY 30, 2007
It is with a heavy heart and through many tears that I write this. My beloved father just died of a heart attack about an hour ago. I found him slumped over in the bathroom on the floor. I tried to revive him as did the paramedics when they arrived. My brother, myself and my dad's girlfriend just returned from the hospital.
I'm quite shaken up right now but I wanted to share with someone what a wonderful man he was. A WWII veteran, an accomplished writer, a man of genius intellect, and most important, the most wonderful and generous father and husband anyone could ask for. He will be sincerely missed by all whose lives he touched.
On the bright side, he is now at peace and surely back by my mother's side once again.
I love you Dad, and if I can be half the man you were in life, I'll have been a success!
Love, you're admiring son,
