We got to know Pat and Carol from our daughter Anna and Tim's high school relationship. Their family embraced ours and over the years we shared many happy times together. Their warmth and affection was always genuine and heartfelt. We are saddened to hear of Pat's passing. Carol, Pat, Tim, Brian and their families are in our prayers. Julius and Irma Steinemann, MP, IL.

I was fortunate enough to live a few doors down from the Sullivan's and become live long friends with the family. Pat was a awesome human being who knew what the important things were in life. I have countless memories from Mt. Prospect and Saugatuck that I will cherish forever. Thank you Pat and family for being such great neighbors and friends.

May God grant comfort to Carol, Patrick, Timothy, Brian and their extended families. He truly loved Goshorn Lake and was instrumental in promoting the efforts of the GLPOA. Always had a kind heart, warm smile and a friendly greeting. It was a pleasure to have known Pat.

Even as I pray that the Sullivan family be comforted in their grief, I am honored to have known one of the finest people I've ever met. My memories of Pat's kindness, good humor, and genuine friendship will always be with me. He will be dearly missed by so many.

Carol and family, I'm was sorry to hear about Pats passing from my parents. I knew you had endured a very difficult stretch earlier this year, and I hope Pats passing was peaceful and surrounded by family. My mom and dad always spoke fondly of all the fun times at your home in Michigan with the gang of friends from Mt Prospect. My prayers are with all of you as you go through this difficult time but hopefully remember all the laughs and great memories. Peace. Steve Anderson
