Pat Byrne and Bob Sheehy were friends for decades. When Pat experienced an extremely difficult loss, Bob Sheehy was among the very first people Pat reached out to. Reflecting on the experience Pat shares that he really didn’t know how Bob was able to be the incredible friend he needed on a personal level, and the extraordinary professional on another level. While profoundly grieving with Pat, Bob took care of everything that was needed and according to Pat “left no stone unturned to make sure every last detail was taken care of perfectly.” If you know Bob Sheehy and the Sheehy family this may not surprise you. Generations of their family have been taking care of generations of families on the South and Southwest sides of the city and suburbs for more than a century. This particular situation was emotionally and painfully close for Bob, but he understood the roles he needed to fill for his lifelong friend.
“The families who have trusted us have been interconnected to our family before my involvement. “My brother Jim and I learned from our dad and our uncles how important that covenant is with families and we’ve done our best to pass on and explain that feeling to every professional at our funeral home and ensure that is how we always conduct our services. We are a family taking care of our extended family of people who’ve trusted us for over a hundred years.” That’s how you define “The Sheehy Way”.
It’s a privilege to have your trust. One we take seriously every day.
