A personal message from Sean Read:
Our target: $ 2,500
So far we've raised: $ 2,575

Please support my online memorial for Sean Read Sean was an amazing person who touched everyone he came in contact with. He was a skilled Vet, Theatre professional and an all Star, all round Guru.

Sean's quote taken from his facebook page really sums up the amazing man he truly was. (shared with his brother Warren) "Unless there is a really good reason to say no... - always say yes" - Warren and Sean Read

Sean's Family have kindly asked should you wish to send a gift, please do so in the form of a Donation, so what better way then to have a Tribute page created in his name, to raise funds for Animals Australia.

Sean touched so many people in the Mandurah Community and far beyond.

He will be greatly missed.
