My sincerest condolences to the family. Though our paths had not crossed in many years, I remember Sullivan from the late 80s and 90s through our involvement with AIM/IRS. May he rest in peace.

I am sorry to hear the passing of a super great man. I have been glad to
know Sully and Bernadine. They greeted me and my family at church.
During my time at St. Augustine's, he and Bernadine opened their arms
to me and my family. I'm going to miss you, Brother. RIP.
