  9. Kristen (Martina) Kowalski condolence:

    My fondest memory of Sully is the commitment he had to coaching girls sports. He taught these young women that they could do anything, that they could be anything, that they could be winners…and that gave them so much confidence. They grew-up and became friends and sisters and neighbors and mothers. The confidence they gained from his coaching was passed on to so many others through them – that positive idea that you could accomplish great things if you put your mind to it. I was one of those girls and I know he left an imprint on me and I am better because of it. Thank you, Sully, for believing in me and all the other young women out there – your positive impact on so many lives is immeasurable. My deepest sympathies to his family and close friends – you are in my thoughts and prayers. May he rest in peace.
