Dear Steele Families,
I met Sean when we were in high school working at Hershey Park. We spent some time together and I will always treasure my memories with him. Although we went on separate paths during college we did reconnect on Facebook. I kept up with him on there and always enjoyed reading about his adventures. I know he will leave a big loss for many and I will miss his big smile. May his eternal bright light always shine down on us.
God Bless,
Lisa Salpino Drapcho (Salpy)

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you...

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
Because I knew you
I have been changed for good

- from "For Good," from the musical, "Wicked"

I haven't seen Sean since I graduated IUP back in the early 90s. We were both in the Marching Band there, and I can't remember a time I ever saw him without a smile on his face. He was good people.

So many memories with Sean! We spent so much time with our Paw-Paw playing and having fun. We would make mud pies and mix up baby powder pudding! He will always be that sweet cute younger cousin. May he rest in peace and know how much he is loved by his family.
