In a letter to his family, Sean Devereux wrote, "While my heart beats, I have to do what I think I can do, and that is to help those who are less fortunate."

Though he was killed at the age of 28, Sean's heart beats on in all those whose lives he touched; in the example he left us of a life lived with compassion, faith, generosity and humour; and in the work of the Sean Devereux Children's Fund, an intiative set up in his memory by Sean's family to support the young people of Africa.

This Pocketbook is a collection of memories and tributes from Sean's family and friends, including Salesians who taught him and worked alongside him in Africa.

Many of the contributions are deeply moving; some are funny; all are inspiring.
