  1. Pat was an amazing man who defied all odds living with ALS for 18 years. All who knew him admired his sharp wit and positive attitude. Our hearts ache for his family and close friends, but we take comfort in the knowledge that he is in a better place, standing tall and feeling no pain. We are better people having known Patrick Sullivan, Sr. and continue to hold Sue and her family in our thoughts and prayers.
