I awoke this morning, and as always, Cailean was the first thought of my day. Realizing that it was Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be a fitting time to honor Cailean’s memory by sharing some of the sentiments friends have written about our son/brother. Here are some more kind and comforting words we have received:
– so many people here so earth loved him so much
– grateful for all the laughs and for him being such a sweet and talented person
– brightened so many peoples’ days
– such a wonderful person who always made people smile
– kept smiles on so many peoples’ faces
– Cailean’s memory will live on in everyone whose life he had touched
– will always have a special place in our hearts and will always remember how his earlobes turned beet red when called on in class
– an Eric Clapton in the making
– so lucky to have had him in our lives
– his sweet, genuine smile
– his wonderful guitar playing at Eighth Grade Graduation and how happy he was that night
– such a sweet, sweet boy
– cute, shy “Godzilla loving” pal
– an exceptional person
– a bright, funny, and talented member of the Garrison community-
– a special person whose music was exceptional
– what a talented musician
– always had a wave and a smile for us

Happy Valentine’s Day, Cailean. Love forever, Mom

“Heart and Soul”, this year’s annual talent show for Philipstown teenagers, is scheduled to be held at 7:00 PM at the Garrison School on Saturday, April 2, 2005. As noted in our local newspaper, “The show will be dedicated to Cailean Sheeran, former Garrison student, musician, and friend to many”.

The show will be directed by our wonderful friend, Patty Scecina, and will feature a special song to be sung for Cailean. Ticket proceeds will be donated to UNICEF for the Tsunami Relief Effort. Proceeds from refreshments served at intermission, a fifty/fifty raffle, and (hopefully) sales and/or orders taken for a CD of Cailean’s music – songs he wrote and played, as well as songs he loved, – will be donated to Neurological Lyme Disease research and Young Concert Artists Inc.

A number of Cailean’s friends are already aware of the show and are planning on participating in various ways. If you are interested in performing (even singing in the background on his special song), helping backstage, or assisting with the raffle and CD sales, please email me (
This should be a touching evening for honoring Cailean’s wonderful memory. As always, thank you for your comfort, support and interest. Maureen
