Just by watching this documentary, you have done something for us that we are so thankful for. You have allowed our father to continue to give back and make a positive impact as he did when he was here.
A special message to anyone who is going through what we are - you are not alone. We understand how difficult this is. Sending love.

    • Beautiful tribute to your dad 💛You know he is so proud of you guys. My heart goes out to you guys. I know the pain of losing your best friend, your hero, your dad...There is nothing anyone can say or do, to take the pain away but Just know, he is where he deserves to be..I know this saying, is so very true.. his wings were ready, your hearts were not.. I also know all to well about panic attacks. Seeing your hero leave this earth, changes you forever. I too never knew panic attacks were real... I’m embarrassed to say, I thought it was 100% controllable, but they’re not. All of the different emotions you talk about going thru, I can relate to 100%.. you guys are not alone! You guys are in my prayers & anyone else who is going thru this 🙏🏻 A golden heart stopped beating, his hard working hands put to rest, god broke our hearts to prove to us, HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST 🕊

    • This is so incredibly sad for the both of you, I can’t even imagine the pain that you must go through every day. Everyone is so proud of you and how you just carry on with your lives. I love you both so much and I can’t stop crying watching this. I was crying when you called your grandparents but then when Grayson started crying I felt so bad for him. 💔 I’m so sorry for your loss, I can’t believe that the worst things can happen to the best people. I hope you two are doing well. We love you Sean ❤️🙏🏻

  • If everyone who liked this video could donate just $1 each, think of where their fundraiser would be. Blows my mind how little they have yet with so many supporters. I donated enough for 10 of you, let’s see that bar be raised. For Sean ❤️

  • Grayson and Ethan While I know you are going through this hard time I want you to you are in my prayers. Sometimes we don’t know why people leave and all we can do is wonder why it had to happen. But sometimes, we know that it is just someone’s time. From the video, I can tell that your dad loved you so much. He would be so proud of you and he is looking down watching you. Even though you can’t see him you know he is there with you forever. I hate seeing you sad and I’m sorry for your loss. He isn’t in pain though. A lot of people are scared of death but they aren’t. They are scared of what happens after you die. Will you forget all your memories. But God has a plan for everyone. Your dad, Sean, gave us two amazing, unique, funny and special brothers. Brothers are the world and they are the other half of you. I have a brother and he is always there for me. We are the same age and he is always by my side. You are so lucky to be brothers. You aren’t alone ever. And I’m here for you. Remember the memories and don’t forget. Keep him alive. And he will stay alive through you and your family and us. I don’t know what you are thinking right now. But I know that your dad will protect you for the rest of your lives. He finished his mission and did a wonderful job. Now he is at peace. I don’t know if you will see this but if you do. Know I’m here. Thank you for everything you have done for me. While watching you, I’ve grown over the years. And have accepted who I am. While I’m not quite there yet. I’m working. When I was down or upset I could come to your channel and have a laugh. While sometimes we don’t want the time to move it does. So we live every moment like it’s our last. Cause any moment could be our last. Tomorrow we will wake up and it will be a new day. A new day to use are memories to make more. No sure if that makes sense but I hope you can get something out of this. Sean Dolan. A strong, loving, funny, father of Ethan and Grayson Dolan. I am keeping you guys your sister You mom And your whole family in my prayers. Thank you for everything. Sean will be missed and lived on forever. Love A stranger who cares

It’s so fucking awesome to watch this because it helps me relate and I thank you guys and love you. 💞

  • What a beautiful tribute to your dad x You boys are the spitting image of Sean too as well as in personality ! I cried within first few mins. Loved the interviews with family, friends and colleagues but in particular Sean’s uncle affected me the most - especially how he praised your dad for his strength and wanting to be at least 10% of a man your dad was (I think that was roughly along the lines of what he said ). Stay strong guys x

Cancer is a terrible illness, but your story will spur action to find a cure. I proudly made a donation to your foundation to make that happen. Love, prayers and support to you all!

  • I cried all throughout this video......I am probably typing on headache coz of crying...... Anyway i love my dad... But i dont know how to express it..... Actually i hav never spent any bday of mine wid my dad.....coz he works in a ship so he travelles 11 months on sea and 1 month with us....my bday is may 18 but i hav never cut my bday cake wid my dad..... I dont really connect wid him that much... I dont miss him at all....but after this video i realise that dads love is greater....i also realized how hard he works just coz i should study and he works soo hard jist to buy me some chocolates and other stuff that i ask.... He once said that the water that he gets in ship would be in brown color.... So i asked him to drink bottled mineral water ..... But he said that costs like 20/-(indian rupees)and he could save that money to buy wat ever i ask.... I was sooo shocked... That is dads love guys ..... It is sooo prescious.... Even if a single second concentration misses he would loose his life ..... He works soo hard to rise me and my sister...i really miss my dad .... He is in ship now but i miss my dad sooooooooooooo much after watching this video.... I appreciate the effort that dolan twins have taken....hats off man..no words

  • Oh my god... I'm not concerned about this situation, but I'm so sensitive and I cry all long the documentary... It's too beautiful, congratulations guys. You had the courage to talk about it, to go back to your memories, to accept and show you sadness... You're really strong twice. Your dad was probably a wonderful guy according to this video, and I think we're all sad of his dead, and we all have loved to meet him... THANK YOU SO MUCH AND CONGRATULATIONS FOR THIS DOCUMENTARY, YOUR FATHER IS OBVIOUSLY SO PROUD OF YOU.

  • I had a best friend, at only 13 she had her life taken away from cancer. Everyone she knew even a tiny bit, was grieving and grieving everyday.We held a mini ceremony where we wrote on balloons put candles inside them, but still didn’t stop us from crying every night having nightmares and flashbacks with her. It’s hard to get over and I struggled as well! We are sending love from all across the world. Sean is protecting you in every aspect of life, and guiding you to happiness. Sending love from LA.
