To the living, I am gone. To the sorrowful, I will never return. To the angry, I was cheated, but to the happy, I am at peace and to the faithful, I have never left. I cannot be seen, but I can be heard. So as you stand, upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea – remember me. As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty - remember me. As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity – remember me. Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved, the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed. For if you always think of me, I will never be gone.

A wonderful, smart and cultured gentleman. He would come by our Gaelic lessons and share a few words and share lectures on history with us. He was always friendly and a pleasure to see.

Jim and I started our LIRR careers about the same time and worked closely together for many years. We had many good times together. He was a good man both on and off the job and he’ll be missed.

Our sincere condolences on the passing of James D. Sullivan's Family, I remember Jim when I worked on the LIRR and more importantly as a member of St. Patrick's Div. 2, in Babylon. I got to know him on a more personal level, instead of boss/employee, but more as a Hibernian Brother. That he appointed me Freedom For All Ireland Chairman, after being a member a short while, which impressed me that he would think of me in that compacity. I like to think that he saw something in me, to place that trust in. I've worked with him through the many years there alongside him and my other Brothers.
When I use to come up to visit my old Division, I would see him there in the evenings playing cards and enjoying his retired years. He'll sorely be missed by many, including myself. Rest In Peace, My Brother, for you've fought the good fight and will be remembered by many who had the priveldge of working and living side by side.
