I am Joyce (Simons) Andes.
Your dad was my uncle. My father was Ralph Simons. My sister sent me the info of your dad's passing. She sent a photo
and your dad looks as I remember him. and I haven't seen him in at least 40 years. I'm sorry for your loss.
I was sorry to read of your father`s
passing. I did not realize your father was 102. My mother was 100 when she passed in February. We have some good genes.
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Judy, I am sorry for the loss of your Dad. I have known him
since World War II. When our husbands went off to war, the wifes got together Esther, Sally, Goldie and myself. We continued
our friendship long after the war was over and had reunions every year. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I don't know if you remember me, but I was Linda Cline, a neighbor of Aunt Florence. I am the older sister, Deb the younger.
I live in Lewistown, PA now, but dad, who is 91, called to tell me that your dad had passed away. I want to express my condolences
to you. He always sold my mother the best red beets. We always referred to them as Wimm's beets, and I remember those
childhood days with great fondness. Blessings!
