back in 1942

Back on this day, December 22nd, 1942, there was a very wonderful person brought into this world.

Jack Robert Simmons 1942-1998

He would have been 63 years old today. It's impossible to not think of Dad on this day every year, which is a good thing, because he always makes me smile.

He always told me that smiles and laughing were contagious. With Dad around, that was always true!!! He was one of the most jovial and positive people to anyone who ever knew him.

On this day, I hope everyone will smile at my dad just like I do every day. He would be happy to be responsble for putting another smile on our faces one more time.

I LOVE YOU DAD.......and I pray you are at peace............

Come With Me

God saw that you were suffering
and a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you
and whispered, "Come with me".

Through tear filled eyes
we watched you suffer
and slowly fade away.

Although we loved you deeply,
we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands were put to rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.

Even though this poem is sad and always makes me cry - it's very true for my Uncle Robby.

Miss you, your laugh that filled a room, our heated battles over Trivial Pursuit and listening to you talk! You were one smart guy!

I know you are with me!

Love you Uncle Robby!!

In the 12 Wonderful years that I knew Uncle Robbie He became one of my favorite uncles and I only have 2 others. I miss him alot especially his Woderful and Contagous Laugh.

All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all
