Hello Angela and the rest of your family. I am thinking of you today. When I look at the picture of your grandmother I see my mom’s face.
Fern was my mom’s cousin as her mom Angela and my mom’s dad George Simmons were brother and sister. My mom was Marjorie Simmons. I just talked with my Aunt Beulah Simmons who was great friends with your mom Fern.I never knew her as I was born after she left our beautiful part of Newfoundland.
I read somewhere that”death is not a lamp that is extinguished but the beginning of dawn”. God bless you all.

To My Mother, many years ago I became your daughter, you brought me up with your sweet loving ways. The thousands of memories I have you will always be with me. One of my favorite things was watching you and my Daddy dance in the kitchen to no music. It was always so sweet. All the kind things you have done for so many people through out the years will be cherished. My heart is broken knowing I can never see you again, never hear your voice and your little giggle. The last few weeks for you were very hard and I know you tried so hard. I am so very blessed to have a Momma like you. Your beautiful blue eyes were sparkling the last time we talked. I know you are now in a place with no pain or sickness. It is so hard to let you go. I cherish my life in this family. We grew up like the Leave it Beaver Family. Always good food, happy times and the most loving parents. Momma I love you with all my being. When Daddy saw you I know he put his arms around you to dance with no much. This family will always love you and know you did your best to make us happy. Hugs and kisses As Always Sissy
