Two years ago today, our lives changed forever when our son – brother - friend – Sean was taken from us. Sean’s positive energy, love of people, and infectious laughter touched us all. Over the past two years, you have all rallied around Sean and our family, and created a legacy we know would make Sean very proud.
Together, we have remembered Sean in many ways --- by planting trees and gardens; a beautiful bench dedication; pickleball and lacrosse tournaments; a Benefit Concert; a Balloon Release; a Candle Lighting Ceremony; and the First Annual Sean Urda Soccer Golf Tournament.
Over the past two years, the Sean Urda Foundation has given away thirteen scholarships worth more than $18,000 to college bound seniors who embodied Sean’s work hard play hard attitude in life and soccer so they could live Sean’s dream. The Town of Huntington has graciously given out four Playground Camp Counselor Awards in Sean’s name to those that embodied Sean’s love of helping others and brought out the best in the campers.
The legacy we built for Sean is made possible by two things. First and foremost, the genuine, full-hearted love we all have for Sean. He was a special young man who touched everyone he came in contact with. Second, we could never have done any of this without you. Your immense generosity and the love you hold for Sean are truly the glue that made all of these things possible. The Urda Family, especially Sean, is extremely grateful for all your love and support.
In recognition of your support, our family has donated a soccer scoreboard to John Glenn High School. This scoreboard is our way of both remembering Sean’s love of the game as well as giving back to all of you – who have given so much to us. We continue to hold Sean closely in our hearts and our thoughts. Thank you all for doing the same. We are extremely grateful for all your love and support.
Love,
Gary, Nicole, Tyler, Luke, and Our Angel Sean #14
Thank you from the Urda Family
