What a beautiful farewell for your dear Sean..
Butch & Jimmy added the "McCarthy Humor" to keep it light and the memories happy..
Sean took care of the weather and kept those clouds at bay so that the hundreds of firemen , friends and family could line the streets outside the church and wave goodbye as he rode on the back of his firetruck one last time through the streets of Bellmore.
Goodbye Sean...Slainte! You will never be forgotten.
