Christmas is a time of giving.
Giving thanks for family time.....giving time to the ones you love to make memories......giving gifts to each other.
Sean loved Christmas. He loved making hors d'oeuvres with his Fadre. He loved helping decorate the house with his Mom. He loved long endless games of Risk with his brothers. He loved the frantic game of Spoons and laughing during Anomia with his cousins and family. He loved waking up early Christmas morning to see what Santa brought. But what Sean loved most was watching someone he cared about open a gift from him and seeing the joy it brought them.
Our family tradition is to exchange family gifts Christmas Eve. We sit around taking turns opening gifts one at a time. Sharing in the giving as much as the receiving with just our family. Sean used to spend weeks putting tons of thought into finding the perfect gift for each of us. Whether it was the dangly pink earrings he knew his Mom would love or the Halo 4 Xbox controller for his brother Ty or the razor spark scooter for his brotherLuke or my own "First to the Ball, Last to Give Up" license plate holder.
The thing I remember most is the sparkle in his eye and the smile on his face as he delivered yet another thoughtful gift to those he loved.
This Christmas we wish you all the gift of family The gift of giving memories to each other (memories are what truly last).
Merry Christmas from the Urda's.
Gary, Nicole, Tyler, Luke and Sean (#14)

"A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it lasts forever." NDTV
Today we remember Sean's smile. He always wore it and shared it with everyone. We miss your smile Sean.
Love, Dad, Mom, Tyler & Luke

Today, June 26, 2015, five months after the accident, Sean would have graduated from High School.
To the class of 2015 ----- our son Sean’s friends. There are two lessons we would like to share with you as you journey into the next phase of your life. The first is one my father taught me, and I taught my sons. My dad always said --- if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there. The lesson here is a simple one. Choose your path…...don’t let your path choose you.
The second lesson is one we recently learned. And one that we thought was worth sharing with you as you begin to figure out the road for your life. As adults – we tend to measure our lives by our accomplishments. Meaning great accomplishments equals great life. But as children, it was much simpler than that…… As children, we measure our lives by how happy we are. Happiness equals great life. By this measure we know Sean had a great life – one thing we all know about Sean is that he was happy.
So our message to you, the Class of 2015, Sean’s Class --- be deliberate when choosing your path in life, but remember to choose the path that makes you happy. When you do, you will find all the success life has to offer. May your future be filled with much success and may Sean always be in your heart.
