I share this thought and would support the establishment of memorial scholarship in Patrick Sullivan's name.

I know we all owe him a debt for finding and sharing many exceptional rarities, as well as for his service leading trips. We might also consider establishing a memorial scholarship for young birders in his name.

> I am very saddened to report the death of Patrick Sullivan on September 19th, 2007. It is a great loss to his mother, his friends, and the birding community. Patrick fought a lifelong battle against bipolar disease, and it finally defeated him. He took his own life two days after he had returned from the WOS convention at Ocean Shores. He was 35 years old. 
> Patrick began his birding with Bob Ramsey when he was only eight. Bob had a junior naturalist program at Snake Lake Nature Center, and Patrick was his star student. 
> As Patrick's knowledge of birds grew, he became an outstanding birder. He was in demand as a leader of field trips for Audubon and WOS. He was in his element when he was birding. In recent years he shared his love of birds through his photography, which he posted on his website.
