We've lost Sean Jansen

I’m so sorry … but I have some really sad news, everyone. Those of you who have been with me since the good old days, when RedBubble was THE place to be, will remember the kind and gentle soul of Sean Jansen .

You may know that he has been fighting illness for quite some time …

Here is a portion of the email I’ve just received from his dear friend, Liane Pinel …

" … we have lost Sean Jansen. He passed away from complications due to illness on Sept 3rd at 3:25pm peacefully. His memorial service is on Saturday Sept 8th at 10am at Fosters Funeral Home in Calgary on 4th Street. I have posted a note on Red Bubble. and here as well. Please help me spread the word to his online friends. His family has requested that his art all be pulled offline asap…I am in the process now."

So hard to believe … we only talked 18 days ago when he was telling me about a surgery … a risky surgery …

Sean, I only wish I could stand among your friends and family and admirers on Saturday to say goodbye.

… you will be missed … I’m so sorry …

Ellen Cotten has kindly included a link to the funeral home’s guest book where we can leave a note for the family. Thank you, Ellen. Sean Jansen’s link

Also, Sherri has created a Special Feature for Sean in her beautiful New Creations of Art and Photography … a lovely celebration of his legacy.
