Now, the greatest of all the visit...love, family, trust, personified in photos..

Through the years...

..always the four of us...



He wore this shirt just for me...breast cancer pink.. "Real cowboys wear pink.."

Big brother extrodinaire..


He drives his red tractor through the small town of Arivaca on the Fourth of July with the little girls on the "float"...and of course, his American flag...

His tractor, like all of us, worn & tired..missing a few parts...

This is just where he should be..in his home, in his beloved Arizona..good books..good light..good wine..



Driving him for radiation in Tucson..his remarkable, strong hands, looking much like our Father's..

One of his favorite roles..that of "Grandpa"..

..and that of brother..

The three Sullivans -(before I was even a twinkle in my Father's eye...)

Keep fightin' Larry. We're all behind you whispering..

"ride, Larry, ride...."

You all look sooo much alike. Gotta claim each other, don't ya. Continued prayers for Larry. Despite his struggle, he looks pretty good in all the pics. Maybe because he has his posse behind him all the way!!

A great tribute to your brother and sisters. Fabulous pictures of you all together. Hang on to them. Cherish them. You must have all been good medicine for him. I hope he keeps fighting and can laugh another day and read another book in his lovely house in Arazona.

Wonderful post. I can tell you love your bro' very much. My brother John died tragically at 25. My brother Ron died at 50 and we had been estranged for about 7 years. Now it's just us two sisters.
