My Friend, Bob Simmons

When the stress of work and personal life
became overwhelming,
I needed only to see your smiling face
and feel your arms circle around my being
to realize my worries were insignificant.

The love you gave to me and
to others was pure and true, it was the
love of a friend.

I know you have passed over to a far better place
and the peace and wellness you feel now
is the way it is supposed to be.

I will miss you Bob Simmons.

You have touched my life in a very special way,
and for that I thank you.

The Hispanics have a tradition,
that I have adopted through the years,
never say good-bye,
but Hasta Luego,

Until we meet again.
