Mike and Kit-and all the Cullinan Family, We are so sorry for your loss. We remember the days when your dad would visit you in Dayton! It was lovely to meet your parents. I remember one visit in particular, it was after your parents had left and I was over at your house and looked above your door and there in the horseshoe (I think) he left you some folded up money. I just remember thinking how fun was that. We hope you can find peace and strength in memories. In prayers and thinking of you!

Dear Mr. C and family, Though you have lost a love one and patriarch of the family he has left you so many great experiences and memories. He taught you so many things and prepared you to carry on to show the world these teachings. The greatest thing that he taught was LOVE. Continue to LOVE and show LOVE to the world. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Pete Kinney (DCES '89)

Gordon and I want to express our sincere sympathy to the Cullinan family. Mariwin and Pat were always the best of neighbors in Wycliff . We so enjoyed watching the kids grow up. Pat always made us feel so welcomed whenever we saw them at the club, at parties and on the golf course. Our prayers and thoughts are with your family.

My condolences to Mr. Cullinan’s family. I gave Mr. Cullinan a few golf lessons years ago. Like his golf buddies, I can testify that he does not belong in any golf halll of fame. But, as for the Hall of Fame for Great Men, he is the first inductee!

George and Cathy McDonnell April 23, 2018

Friend Leawood , Kansas

To Mariwin, Mike and the entire Cullinan family: Cathy and I are so sorry to hear the news today about Pat passing away. Mariwin, we have such fond memories of you and Pat being such wonderful hosts at your home and in your backyard on Friday nights during the weekend of the Brookridge Bonanza back in the late 80’s and early to mid 90’s. We will always remember Pat as an extremely kind, warm and gracious man who always had a smile on his face. We are very sorry for your loss but are confident Pat has left all of the Cullinan’s with a multitude of positive and heart warming memories to help sustain all of you in the coming days and weeks. God Bless Pat and the entire Cullinan family! George and Cathy McDonnell
