- "Seth was a long-time customer of our bookshop. Every time he walked in our door, his seemingly ever-present smile got us smiling too. It felt good just to be around him. I certainly didn't know him well, but I know that the world is a better place because Seth was in it." - Tom Campbell, co-owner THE REGULATOR BOOKSHOP
