Condolence & Memory Journal

Candle

My condolences to the family and friends. He was such a delight to watch in his profession and although playing a villain it was so obvious he was nothing of the sort. May his memory live on forever in the hearts of all he touched and may deep peace be upon him eternally.

I was shocked to hear of this great WWE WRESTLER' S DEATH. THERE WAS NOTHING BETTER THAN WATCHING THE GREATS FROM WRESTLING. OUR FAMILY ALWAYS PAID FOR PAPERVIEW AND HAD OUR GROUP WITH NEIGHBORS CARRY ON(COUNTING FOR 3..BUT NOT QUITE). THOSE WERE THE BEST OF TIMES. MAY THE JOY AND ENTERTAINMENT JOHNNY BROUGHT TO FANS BRING YOU SOME JOY AND COMFORT AT THIS TIME. GOD BLESS.

My Dear Friend Sully,
We have been friends for over 30 years and I am so sad to see you go way too soon. I am truly heartbroken over your passing. Although we have not spoken the last couple of years, you, Danny, Matt, and your mom (rest her soul) have always been in my thoughts. Besides being an incredible wrestler, manager, and entertainer, you were a sincere friend, great father to Danny and Matt and a genuine good, humble and noble person. I was so fortunate to have you as a great friend. I have so many memories of our conversations about life, family, sports, laughter (that incredible slice when you would tee off at the golf course), going to the gym and wrestling shows.

To Danny, Matt and the Sullivan family my sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers and I wish all of you strength during this difficult time. God Bless all of you.

I will see you again Sully.

Rest in peace Johnny
One of the greatest moments in the then WWWF was when The Valiant Brothers won the tag team title in 75. In a post match interview with Vince McMahon Johnny wiped his for head with Vince's tie.
I always enjoyed him both in the ring and as a manager.
My condolences to the family
