Dear Louise, Val and Elaine Hal and I were so fortunate to call Eddie our friend and neighbor. We will fondly remember forever our evening visits, luncheons and afternoon rides, church services, and chats across the driveway. We loved him and miss him but will see him again in heaven for sure, as we carry him in our hearts. ♥️♥️

 Dear Louise and family. Thank you for the virtual Memorial. It is very comforting and yet brings the sadness of missing his jokes, smiles, and welcome Tuesdays at DD. We are truly blessed for having known and loved Ed and being cared for. . He had a way of uplifting us and challenged us to become children of God with his kind demeanor, jokes, and warmth of his smile.His presence remains in our hearts and spirits ,  reminding us who we and whose we are. God Bless. Becky K

 We have known both Ed & Louise for years. Ed was one of a kind, loved by all who knew him. Bob joined him for coffee at Duncan Donuts for a long time. He will be missed by so many in our community. So glad we had the opportunity to be part of his life.

My condolences to the Family. May God give you strength. Psalm 34:18. "The span of our life is 70 years or 80 if one is especially strong." Mr. Sullivan must have had special mightiness. May you find comfort in knowing that God promises to end all sickness. Isaiah 33:24. Mr. Sullivan and all of our dear loved ones are in God's memory. Our loving Creator longs to bring back our loved ones in sound health with the prospect of living in beautiful conditions on earth. Job 14:14,15. ~Sincerely

 So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. Used to run into him at Dunkin Donuts in New Hartford. Also remember working for him at the MDC. We used to spray the ornamentals along the Dam and he used to show me around in the tunnel under the Dam. He was a great funny guy. Quite sure he is causing some chuckles in Heaven. RIP Ed.

My sincerest condolences to you and your Mom. Ed looked after my parents across the street and always had a slightly off color joke for my Mom when he delivered the mail which she remembered to pass on to all of us with so much enjoyment. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed. My love to Louise and your family from the Church Family.

  Ed had a positive impact on everyone he met.  What a sense of humor and ability to tell jokes!  Life has lots of ups and downs and I expect that he met them all with good humor and optimism.  As the years go by we grow into each other, becoming one, and it is clear that this has been the way for Ed and Louise.  Two parts that made more than two individuals.  Who we leave behind says a lot about who we are, and Elaine and Valerie are amazing people.  

I'll continue to remember Ed every time I pass a bicyclist on the road.  God speed Ed!

Lots of love to Louise and the girls,

 We loved you so very much & will miss you until we see you    in Heaven! We had so many good times with you and Louise-please save some jokes for all your earth friends &  looking forward to seeing our Lord and our  loved ones.

Love and prayers to both Ed & Louise, Mildred & Frank

Dear Elaine, I wish I had met your amazing Dad. He sounds like the kind of person we all aspire to be and lived a great life. So glad he and your mom were near you and your sister these past months. Blessings on your entire family at this difficult time. Love, Siobhan

 He was the greatest Dad.  He instilled in us the value of laughter and to be open and fair in all of our dealings with other people.  With Mom's help, he pushed us to learn and become self-sufficient.  He made sure we could change a tire - just in case - and to keep track of the gas mileage!  All of the loving, little things that I will profoundly miss.

Dearest Elaine:

Kindly accept Frank & my sincerest condolences on the loss of your father. Thank you for granting us the opportunity to get to know your dad through this enlightening memorial. I now realize where many of your amazing talents spring from; especially your delightfully, wicked-sharp sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours at this difficult time. Love you, lotsa!

 Loved bringing them their mail every afternoon. It was always "Joke Time"  Looked forward to my afternoon visit.  It was full of jokes, laughter and New Hartford History.  Loved our neighbors!   We were very "Lucky"

Sincere condolences to his wonderful Daughters

 I will miss his humor & his honesty. He's the father of the love of my life & we were friends. I was forunate to know him & better for it. Rest in peace because you deserve it.

Dearest Elaine,

My sincere condolences to you and your family.  I feel fortunate that I was able to meet your dad.  I will never forget the Thanksgiving dinner I had with you and your wonderful family.  I will especially remember the raucous laughter, most of which brought on by your dad's jokes.  He clearly passed along to you the best of himself.  A loving, kind and witty nature!  It is good to know that he did not linger and suffer.  May God's love comfort you during this time of grief.

Your pal, Kim
