Dear family of Mr. Sullivan:
Our family has lived as a neighbor of Mr. Sullivan ofr 57 years now. My dad, William, really liked talking to your father. They had a lot in common. I enjoyed some chats with him, as well, when he was out for a walk and I was working in the year. He was always so nioe and always a gentleman. Those are truly wonderful things to be able to say about someone. I know our neighborhood won't be quite the same without our older neighbors. I'll miss your father. God bless and comfort you in your sorrow. I am sure you have wonderful memories. Susan

I was saddened to read in Thursday's paper of Mr. Sullivan's passing. My Dad, Dick Lynch, was a great friend and golf buddy as well as Sunday morning breakfast companion. My parents and Mr. & Mrs. Sullivan go back many years to before WWII and remained friends over the years. My Dad is a resident of Scranton Health Care Center for the past 2 years but would often ask about the gang. he still reads the paper daily and I am sure saw the obituary. He may not remember when I see him but he will always remember Danny.
Again my deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Keep his memory alive and smile through the tears. It is the best tribute.

Dear Danny, Margaret, and Ann
I knew your mother and father from many years ago.My mother and father, Mary and Joe Folan. They spent many hours together at the Elks Club and at McGraths when your mother played bridge. In recent years I kept up to his activities through Joe Gerrity. Your dad always had some great jokes,a great sense of humor and a great smile. He was full of life. I know you will miss him. I am unable to attend the viewing, but wanted to pass on my memories and condolences.
