This space–Belt Magazine– would not exist without the leading example of the extraordinary owners of the Happy Dog, Sean Watterson and Sean Kilbane, men who took risks, built communities and exemplified the art of the possible. Their accomplishments and spirit ┬áhave inspired many other Cleveland ventures. I certainly know we would not be if not for them.

We learned the unbearable news that Sean Kilbane passed away last night in an accident. We, along with so many others, are grieving.
