Really difficult to hear that ‘Cuz’ Barb lost the battle that she had been waging so bravely for so many years… What I remember most: her great laugh, always asking about family, and always wanting to know if she could do something to make your life better. It was never about her…

Although distance and circumstances keep us
physically apart at this time, please know that our ‘southern Sullivan’ family members have all of our thoughts and prayers with Donna, Aunt Barb, all of my cousins, and other family and friends at this trying time.

Deepest sympathies – Patrick and family…
