Hotrodders: Some assistance for a sick friend and gearhead...

Hi All,


Sean, my friend, brother and fellow gearhead, came home two weeks ago from the hospital after being told he was terminally ill and had a week left to live. He is suffering from diabetes and gangrene is spreading all over his body.


He continues to put up a strong fight. However, he may not have much time left.


Aside from being a gearhead, Sean is also a Batman fanatic. Last Saturday, Dan Sobieski of Boyd Coddington fame, brought the car by Sean's house and gave him a ride for a few blocks. Sean still can't believe he got to ride in it.


Sean has always been a private person but, interestingly enough, he suggested putting the short video of his ride on Youtube to see if it would go viral.


I would like to ask you all to please view the video. Any positive comments and prayers for Sean and his family are welcome and greatly appreciated.


Thank you and God bless,

I'm on my phone so for some reason I can't see the video. I will certainly give it a look when i'm on my desktop though. Kudos to your friend for his great attitude in the face of such insurmountable circumstance. I'm sorry for any heartache this has brought you, friend.

What a nice gesture on the car owner's and Dan's part. I hope your pal can go in peace now knowing that there really are some nice folks left in this world. God speed to him and his loved ones.

Good of you to put that out there and for Dan Sobieski to bring the car around! Good luck to him and his family, hopefully there'll still be a good outcome.

sorry to hear this news!! Prayers & hope for Sean. Think you should remove the video in the post and put the link to it up instead. As it does not count as views this way. You need to go to the youtube site for it to be log.

Mo, my heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out for your brother, Sean, and his friends and family. Something like this is hard to imagine but some of us have been there and realize how important our Faith is. I pray that God gives him the peace and dignity to make these last days just a staging area for his Eternal Home.

God Bless him and you for allowing us to be a small part,
Em

Hi All,


Thank you so much for the comforting words, prayers and for watching the video.


Sean lost his battle to diabetes this past Thursday at the age of 30. He took his last breath at 11:30 am, surrounded by family and friends. Ever the fighter, he took his medicine even a few minutes before passing on.


Sean had a challenging life. But as his time grew near, he found what he was looking for. As his body was dying, his soul truly grew stronger. He may have lost the fight, but he definitely won the war. He went out fighting, while completely at peace.


It hurts to have lost a fellow gear head and a true brother, but I'm glad I've got you guys.


Please keep Sean and his family in your thoughts and prayers...

So sorry for your loss, Mo, and my condolences to the Family.
Hard to watch or even understand someone that young cashing it in when they had so much to do and to live for and then in a blink of an eye they are gone forever. He was blessed to have you for a friend, my friend.
