Curt, Patty, Tim, Meg, and Little Lane, We are so sadden to hear about Pap's passing. We all will miss him dearly, he was a very special man, that would do anything for anyone. Full of laughter, and love for everyone. He always loved watching you play ball Meg, cherish all the memories. Curt all the times he help us get the fields ready, he always loved helping out! That is what kind of a special man he was. God has a plan for him, we have a hard time trying to figure it out, but god knows. It is not good bye, but until I see you again. May this note bring all of you some comfort. You all are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. RIP Pap Love you all, The Simonelli's Tammy, Dino, Dena, Dino, & Dalton
