    Cherie, Holy, and Mike-
    I was so sorry to just learn today of your father’s passing. I still remember him well when he was our playground supervisor at Hallpark School. He had a special way with all the kids and a positive and upbeat personality. I know that a day won’t go by that you won’t think of him. I don’t see you around much anymore, but when I do, I’ll be sure to say hi. Thinking of you all during this time.
    Mr. Simmons
