Not sure what to say?

The passing of Joe brings back a flood of childhood memories. The pony rides, the Cushman motor scooter, swimming at Van Zans Pier, working in the garden with Joe Senior, planting pansies every spring, hunting with our BB guns at which use to be the swamp. Joe was a great childhood friend. I will sincerely miss our phone conversations.

I hold a lot of very fond memories of my childhood growing up with Joe Sullivan. The Cushman motor scooter, the pony rides, the swimming at Van Zan Pier, delivering drugs for Burns Drug Store. I still cherish the great times we had growing up. The last time I talked with him he was losing his beloved wife. He will be missed. He was a great childhood friend. My condolences to his family.
