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 ❤️🙏🏻

  • I know that I am late so it might not mean as much but you men are one of the bravest, kindest, funniest, most thoughtful boys I know.. families are precious and losing them is the worst feeling in the world by far. I have gone through the same thing almost for my aunt commit suicide and I try to act happy but I just can’t keep myself together so the fact you could even film going through this is amazing. I tried to donate as much as I could but I know it will help even though it’s not much.. just remember that we aren’t just “fans” we are people who look up to you, people who care, we are friends, we are family, we love you guys so much and you are truly heroes..

  • i cried the second he started talking and then when grayson started crying i started balling in tears I feel so bad for them and whoever has the audacity and disrespect to dislike this video and make fun of ethans hair is wrong. and for the people making fun of his acne, He is who he is and i bet if you had acne and people made fun of you you'd feel bad ab yourself.

  • So I started following you guys only a couple of months back. You both have evolved so much over the years and this video just goes to prove you both have immense talent and potential. It is such a beautiful tribute to your father. I am sure your dad was an amazing person and the best friend one could ever ask for. Pray you and your family have strength and courage through this trying time, as it's never easy to get over losing a parent. Hope the charities you're supporting get ample amount lot of funding for cancer research. Stay safe and take care each other!☺️❤️ Lots of love and support from an Indian fan 🇮🇳

  • I am so sorry for your loss.I know what it feels like I lost my dad September 23,2019 and I dont know how to cope.I didn't even get to say my finale goodbyes.I woke up around 6:40 am which is around the time he passed.I had to get up at 7:00 for school.But I never have bad dreams or wake up out of a dead sleep but I did that day and around the time he passed.My grandpa passed July 18,2019 dew to liver cancer.My grandpas death was expected but my dads wasn't.When the doctors diagnosed my grandpa with cancer he was already in stage 4 of cancer so he couldnt be saved.My grandpa had almost 3 months to live and it went to a month in a week time frame.Then one week,one day and eventually one hour.And he was gone.Again I am so sorry.💔💔 👼R.I.P Mr.Sean Dolan👼

  • I lost my grandma to breasts cancer when I was 8. Back then I didn't even know what was happening, recently it came back to me and it was hard. I know what you've been through. I support you no matter what. I want you to be happy again. It just breaks my heart that such good people are taken away from us. I don't want to get attention or anything like that. I just want to thank you for being so strong through all this time. The fact that you are crying on camera to me seems that you are really brave to be there for everyone and show that it is normal. I really appreciate that you open up to us. If you see this I just want you to know that with this video you make me so proud. I am so emotional I don't even know what I am writing.I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I THINK EVERYONE HERE SUPPORTS YOU AND DON'T EVER REGRET SOMETHING YOU DID BECAUSE IT LIFE.

  • I met your father a year before he passed at the bar I worked at. He was such a kind soul. And we both had Sagittarius constellation tattoo. He saw and said omg I have the same one and my sons too. He talked so highly about you both. Our birthdays were a day apart. We stayed in touch on fb and he gave me great advice. When I found out he passed I was so sad. Later that day a lady bug landed on me and a lady complemented me on the same tattoo we shared. I believe that was your father. He will always be with you guys ❤

It was incredibly hard literally watching her die right in front of me, everyday getting worse. Just know that whoever is grieving the loss of a loved one, whether it be from cancer or something else, however you are feeling is NORMAL. There is no “right way” to grieve. It’s such an individualized and personal process. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
