This was indeed incredibly sad, but I agree Sean must be better off. No more suffering. I cannot imagine being a prisoner in your own house (and I have agoraphobia tendencies, but I keep myself very busy while I'm at home) with no friends, family or real hobbies. Everyone failed him, including, of course, himself. I don't have kids, but I think it's a parent's responsibility (and it's a HUGE one) to prepare your child to be a functioning adult. Sean's mother basically kept him as an infant all his life, naked, feeding him until he couldn't go out on his own. We all know what a disservice it was, to say the least.
