I still have Seth's crazy smile and laugh in my head as he fought with my couch while helping me move. He was an amazing young man, always smiling and willing to help anytime. His infectious smile and laughs will continue to live on in all of our memories. May God bless you and your family during this time.

Sara, Dave & families,

Our hearts break for all of you.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18

"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

This is such sad news. I had Seth in 6th grade Social Studies. He was a sweet goofy kid in class and put his heart into everything he tackled. He always greeted me in the hallway long after he was in 6th grade. I'm so sorry for your loss.
