I'm very sorry for your loss. I pray for you. I witnessed a strange thing on Thursday, I was out mowing and I saw the funeral passing by and I stopped for a moment and said a prayer for all of you and I turned to look and see if you all turned down your road and as I did I saw the neighbors horses all put their heads up and run to the same area of fence, they all stood lined up with their heads up and watched all the funeral go down the road, I couldn't believe it and wondered if it was coincidence or was it more, only God knows but I thought it might interest you to know the neighbors horses acted as if it were a very solemn moment, and it was. May God comfort you in your loss. your neighbor, Debbie B.

I first met Jimmy last year when I bought a Bow from him. I enjoyed every trip to Willow Point..that was because of Jimmy. He was honest, caring and had a great sense of humor. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.

I am so sorry for you loss Amy, Cody and Abe.
I first met Jimmy when he opened up Willow Point Archery out on highway 54.  I had went in there with my father with my new bow and Jimmy helped to teach me about shooting, stance, and release. One of the first things he said to me was joking with me about being a girl. LOL. I knew he was joking, but he had a way of breaking the ice, making me feel comfortable around him. He just made all of us feel at home. In the archery leagues, no matter how bad I did, he was there, telling me it was okay, and offering me suggestions to better myself.
He will be sadly missed by all the lives he touched.
Just remember the song "Fred Bear"---"In the Wind, He's still alive!"
I am dedicating my hunts this year to Jimmy.  I know he will be there in spirit.
God Bless You all in this hardship.

Shannon Tennant left a message on January 17, 2014:
I've known Jimmy for several years now. I was just a little kid when I met him, my dad had taken me into Willow Point for the first time. For many years my father and I had frequented his shop. We were customers, friends, and active in the leagues and shoots that he held there. I give my sympathies and condolences to the family, it's a sad thing to see a man so young pass on so early in his life. I've written a poem dedicated to Jimmy and the family, which I will personally hand to his wife, Amy. However I will write it here too, as well.

Remembrance
*A Poem Dedicated to James Sullivan and Family*
                 By: Shannon Tennant

Today is a day when people will gather
Family and friends will join in the mourning of a man that mattered
But before the sorrow and the tears are shed
Let's take a moment to remember the life he led

Jim loved the outdoors and hunting too
Going out into the wilderness was what he loved to do
He hunted game both big and small
Even if he returned empty handed, it didn't matter at all

Now he hunts with Fred Bear, Ishi, Pope, and Young
Let's not forget the other things that he has done
He took the time to train the youth
Giving them knowledge on how to shoot

He gave them knowledge on how to survive
Out in the wilderness anything could happen, he taught them how to stay alive
He was a father, brother, uncle, husband, and son
In his life he made many proud of the things he had done

And today in a moment of silence we will remember you
May the skies you hunt under be forever blue
Rest in peace.

Jim was one of the best guys.  He was a friend to us in many ways.  When we began shooting, he was the one who helped guide and encourage us.  Life will never be the same without going to 'Jims'.  We will miss you, buddy.  Our hearts hurt but we have the assurance that you are resting in heaven.  You have received your reward.  Our love and prayers go to Amy, Abe, and Cody.
Bryan Young left a message on January 17, 2014:
   I first met Jimmy 13 years ago when I had an archery shop called Whitetail Connection. Whenever I needed to talk to him he always had the time to listen to me. We respected each other as friends and never as competitors.When I closed my doors I told my customers that Jimmy would take care of them because he was caring,honest,very knowledgeable, and very patient and loving to the young archers.The archery community will miss him, but his legacy will live on.
