My pal. I wish you knew how special you were.

You were kind and genuine and talented and hilarious. I could talk to you about anything. I'm going to miss you.

When I got my tryout you were one of the first people I told. I'd pick you up and we'd drive to Bray together, talking…

I am saddened to learn of the passing of Sean South (Dean Merton), who was a regular on the Irish wrestling scene. 35 is too young. Condolences to Dean’s family and friends. RIP.
