I remember the days dad and I would go to see Gram, and if Uncle Robert was working on building one of the log cabins near by we would stop and chat , I remember one time he even let me help with hammering those nails. When he was building those cabins I remember how very proud my dad, “Chuck” was with him. We loved him and he will be missed. He is now with them (Dad, Gram and Angie) ...where there is peace and no more suffering. I hope his children and grand children can find peace that all will be okay even though we miss him dearly. All will remain in our memories and hearts forever!
Lots of love is sent from Texas.
Love The Simons Family
