Dear Parents,

Please join our school community in offering our deepest condolences and prayers to Peggy and Joe Sullivan who lost their 42 year old son, Brad to a sudden heart attack this past weekend. Many of you know Peggy as our School Nurse. As a mother, Peggy’s life revolved around her three children, in-laws and grandchildren. Needless to say, the family is shocked by this sudden loss.

I have enclosed the obituary information for those of you who would like to pay your respects to the Sullivan family. You may also send cards and prayers to the attention of Presentation of Mary Academy.

I am grateful to Nurse Bernadette who has been available to take over the office while Peggy takes some time to be with her family.
