    Pop, you were the best father in the world and loved us no matter what! You were there for us whenever we needed. You were our confidant, adviser and most importantly father. You taught us how to love not only people but animals as well. I wish I could see you, call you and talk to you one more time. I will miss you and think of you everyday! Love Rosa –

    Pop, my heart is broken….you were and still are the light of our lives. All three of us could not have asked for a better father. You gave us love,support, friendship and fun. You always put us first…you never let us fall. We are proud to have called you our Pop. We all loved being in your company…you always had us laughing….there was never a dull moment. Everyone that met you was drawn to you….you never met a stranger….it didn’t matter if they were 5 or 105, you made them laugh. I will never forget that booming laugh. Thank you for raising me with good values,and teaching me to respect others…these are life lessons I will have with me until my dying breath. You will always be with me….I love you Pop.

    I send my heartfelt condolences to Noel Simmons, a very beautiful bright light in the sky and the hearts of so many. He was a very sweet and lovely man, someone whose energy and love was felt throughout the room, his family, and everyone he knew I am sure. I am glad to have been a part of his life, offered a small reiki treatment to him with Rosa, and know that his jubilant spirit resides with the best of the best.
    He is in my thoughts and also my thoughts go out to every single one in the Simmons family who made my life alittle more special for being like a second family to me. Much love, blessings and light to the Simmons family.

    Mr. Simmons was all that this piece says about him and more. He was free and easy with his smiles and radiated positivity without ever saying a word. And when he did speak, he was always interested in what you were doing and how you were. I pray for him and his family.
