I was so sorry to hear about Uncle Simon's passing, and regret that I was not able to be with you at the funeral. I have so many fond memories of him at the Armentor family reunions. I can only imagine the pot of gumbo that they are all together cooking now! I pray that your cherished memories will help to ease your grief. Now you all have one brightly twinkling star in heavens night sky to wish on.
