Goodbye to an old friend

Postby nazgul on Tue Apr 14, 2009 8:10 am

I just wanted to post a small tribute to my old friend Sean Sweeney.Sean passed away in St Vincents Hospital on Easter Monday after a long illness.He had been involved in ACW reenactment a few years ago and was an avid wargamer,modeller and historian.Sean had his own peculiar ways,liked his own company mostly and loved to paint model figures,and was a member of the Wild Geese wargames club,and he will be sadly missed there.In conclusion,he was a good friend and his sudden passing will leave a mark on many people.

For yesterday is but a dream
and tomorrow is only a vision
but today well lived
makes every yesterday dream of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope
look well therefore to this day

Very sorry to to hear that. Seán was very dedicated and professional whatever it was he turned his hand to. His articles/reviews in periodicals such as Arquebusier and Wargames Illustrated were always top class.

He will be sorely missed
