Thread Name: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
I married Sean's niece Alyssa, 18 months ago in Germany. After moving to California we decided to get married again so that we could celebrate our marriage with our friends and families. Sean has 5 brothers and 3 sisters (including my mother in law) so I was a little apprehensive about meeting everybody in the Blackburn clan. My wife had told me about her cowboy uncle, so actually meeting Sean in the flesh was a wonderful experience. Sean sat my wife and I down and played a song just for us which was beautiful. In the evening Sean led our families and friends in hours of singing and beautiful guitar playing around the fire. Just in case his singing and guitar playing were not evidence enough of his talent, he also created my bride's beautiful bouquet. My memories of Sean are unfortunately too brief, but are all very happy. The voice, the humor, the guitar playing, the twinkle in his eye, and the best moustache in the world!
