Thread Name: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Sean Blackburn (Sept 05)
Well, I am still having a hard time believing Sean is really gone. The memorial concert on 10/27 in Minneapolis was truly something special. The array of talent on the stage was stunning; the house was packed; the event went more smoothly than anyone had a right to expect; and it was beautiful. Huge thanks to Pop and Dave and all who helped organize it and contributed their talents. I have seen lots of memorials and benefits but I have never seen one like that before. The only thing wrong was the fact that there were those huge holes - where Sean and Steve and others should have been.
I wonder if Sean knew how many people he touched? Close to 20 years after he moved away from the Twin Cities and it's like it was yesterday, the response was overwhelming. I hope he knew. I hope he's pleased.
