    Growing up,the Sims’ home was my second home! I can not tell you how many hours I spent hanging out with Sam there! Countless sleepovers eating chips, drinking pop, watching Nighttracks on the TV until 4am. I always felt safe, at home and loved…..warmth….but I remember being afraid of Pat to some extent because you just knew she could see through all the bull shit! There was no “pulling the wool over her eyes” so to speak. She was genuinely, a good person. When I think of her, I can clearly see her sitting in a chair, her hair curled just so, with a lit cigarette in between her fingers, the smoke curling up into the air, a slight smile on her lips and a twinkle in her eye. That’s how I remember her…
    To Sam, Tommy, Mickey, Eddie, Brian and families, I am so truly sorry for your loss! She was an amazing woman! Love and Hugs to you all!
