Sean had a life of accomplishments. His desire was not about fame; but about making an effort to share God's love with everyone. Because of his ability to swim well, he excelled in the Special Olympics swim team and earned many medals. He worked hard at every job he had, including janitorial, restaurant and grocery packer. He was a faithful employee and always did his best. He loved his family and loved time together. Family reunions would be highlighted, since family time was so important! He often inquired about his ancestry and continued to gather accurate information.
He became a Christian Feb 15, 1981 when he asked Jesus to save him. He honored his heavenly Father in many ways by the life he lived. He shared his faith as he encouraged others to seek and know his heavenly Father. He let his light shine before others.
Most of all he read God's word and lived by it. He was a Godly example to many.
Lovingly, Aunt Joy

Sean Miller became my friend the first day I met him. I spoke at his church regarding a respite program I run for those with special needs of all ages and he walked right up to me and said… I am coming to your program!
What struck me most was there was no option. We became friends. He teased me, he meant it seriously when he said he was my friend and I loved him from the start. He was precious. He loved Jesus, his family, and everyone he met.
A funny story to share…. He came to our respite program where he told jokes, teased and shared Jesus. He laughed and hugged and loved everyone. He did however have his eyes on the ladies. He had his eye on one young lady that he spent time with Special Olympics as well. He always asked me her age. He was cared for her deeply and was always respectful of her, and was caring and kind and teased her lovingly. It was beautiful to watch.
In his last moments, it as a joy to watch him to knowing that he was just moments or hours from being with his Savior; The only one who could make him whole and Sean knew that and wanted everyone to know that.
I will miss Sean greatly and I am so blessed to have known him.

Sean was such a pleasure and a joy to take care of as a baby. Happy and fun loving. He so enjoyed his trip to England. "Tower of London", Vale of Evesham was fun. Everyone fell in love with Sean. Sean did say he would clean my house everyday if he could stay in England. All our love, Mavis and Bob

Oh, the memories that come to mind when I think of Sean! Where to begin, anywhere I guess, so here they are in no specific order.

I remember going to lunch with Mary Lou at the Jardon cafe and seeing Sean and how proud he was of his job. The food was quite good too.

Sean was a part of our lives for many years. We were his youth group leaders as well as friends of the family. The kids in the youth group accepted Sean and his silly jokes just as he was. No one ever really thought about his disabilities.

I remember one Christmas Eve morning Mary Lou calling me and asking if we could keep Sean overnight and for Christmas Eve and part of Christmas Day. We said yes, of course. Nothing was open back then except drug stores. So off I went to buy Sean a few gifts to open Christmas morning. I bought the universal "if I need an extra gift" gifts for him. He was very excited when he saw that he had gifts. Then he leaned over and "whispered" to me 'Aren't you glad some stores are open late on Christmas Eve.' And then he laughed.

One time he came to Jim and I saying that he wanted to marry Sherry because Jonathan needed a father in his life and that he would be a good father. I explained to him that yes he would be an excellent father but it was not up to us to choose Sherry's husband. He was quite disappointed. It was so like Sean to see a need that he could fix and was willing to step up and do it.

Sean has always been a special part of our lives. We stayed in touch until he had trouble hearing on the phone. Jim and I were there for his marriage and we talked on the phone with both Becky and Sean when they had a disagreement. It was quite entertaining and frustrating with both of them on the phone at the same time. Becky was always louder than Sean!

We were in the group that listened to Sean's hopes, dreams, goals and frustrations. One goal he had was learning to drive. I don't know if he ever gave up that dream or just stopped talking about it.

Sean loved the Lord and loved to talk about the Lord. He memorized scripture and could recite more scripture than I could. Sean loved people. He loved working so that he could be part of being "normal". He was kind, gentle and loved helping others. Wherever Sean was he made it a better place.

I know that one day I will see Sean again with his new body but I can almost guarantee that when we first meet again he will tell me a silly joke and then take me to meet Jesus. See you at home, Sean. We love you.

We remember Sean as a dear brother, friend, & team-mate. He was so amazing, capable, lovely, goofy, & fun. He was wonderfully wise because of his love for God & His word. He was a real treasure. We miss him.
We pray for you to have deepest comfort and peace. We weep and rejoice all at the same time. Because Christ lives, we shall live also.
Much Love, Diane & Jeff
