Sean Wesley Monson

October 7, 1972 - April 4, 2020

There are places I’ll remember

All my life, though some have changed

Some forever, not for better

Some have gone, and some remain

All these places had their moments

With lovers and friends, I still can recall

Some are dead, and some are living

In my life, I’ve loved them all

The Beatles

    “But me I’m a single cell on a serpents tongue
    There’s a muddy field where a garden was
    And I’m glad you got away
    But I’m still stuck out here
    My clothes are soaking wet from your brothers tears
    And I never thought this life was possible
    You’re the yellow bird that I’ve been waiting for
    The end of paralysis, I was a statuette
    Now I’m drunk as hell on a piano bench
    And when I press the keys it all gets reversed
    The sound of loneliness makes me happier”

    Through out your whole life’s span to singular moments. I wish you knew that you deserved love and happiness. Thanks for the memories and the lessons, monkey.
    Rest In Peace.

    Hey man, I know we haven’t seen each other in years, but I gotta say we had ALOT of good times back then. All the music. Parties at the band warehouse. Or just sitting at The Drafthouse having a beer and talking. You were a good talker, a real raconteur. You even got me in trouble at times. But that’s all part of growing up. You left us way too soon, buddy. Godspeed, old friend.

    Rose Marie, I was sooooo sorry to hear about this…. You are in my heart and in my prayers in these very very difficult days….Sending love and hugs to you.

    Far too young to leave this mortal coil.One of the most talented and creative minds I’ve known,and the world is already a bit sadder without his presence.

  15. Tony Rizzo Apr 10, 2020 at 7:55 am

    Man…I wish you would have come up here, when we spoke about it a few years ago.
    You were one of the GOOD ones. You are missed.

    “I’m hopelessly aware
    Of the good and the bad traits we share
    It’s like looking at myself
    And I know that at times
    I could’ve handled things differently
    Oh, but know my intentions were well..”

    And with that, I know your eyes are rolling even from the beyond🥴. I actually find a little bit of comfort and normalness just knowing that this choice probably annoys you. It wouldn’t be us if we didnt try to cram our musical tastes down each others throats. You were always right though….most of the time anyways🥴.
    I’m so sorry for all the lost time.

    I miss you, Sean.💔

    Rest In Peace

    My Heart is Broken,
    Will Miss You Every Day

    Rest in peace. I’m so happy you are with God and happy at peace I’m glad I got to connect with you and let you know I love you before you passed. 🤗♥️
