The Elusive Seth

That was the nickname his parents gave him. Months and months ago. It is his superhero name.

I met Seth for the first time in December. There had been many stories before him, and his parents had shared so many memories of their time with him, that it was easy to feel like I knew him already.

Everyone talks about his smile - and it's true. It just lights you up to see him smile. He played hide-and-seek with us while Lois and I were visiting. He's VERY good at it. He would sneak up on us and jump out from behind the sofa with a smile as broad and bright as the day. He also excelled at playing a joke on me where he would disappear around the corner and wait to see how long I kept talking before I realized he was gone.

He loved his family very much and just worshiped his dad. My heart goes out to the Watson family. I hope you find peace and comfort in knowing we love you and Seth.

We all loved him - and we will all miss him.

Absolutely....his smile is the first thing I think of when I think of him. I can just picture him suprising you and Lois. :)

Hi. Just getting to a point where I can take a breather and read everyone's posts about Seth. Thank you for your description of him. I LOVE the picture you posted. Hadn't seen it before. Can you send me the full resolution "big" version?
